I received my envelope today too! I'd love to move to Boulder.  Three years of ready access to world class skiing is right up my ally. Initially my wife was on board with living off savings while I attended a full time program.  Now she is having second thoughts and is pushing me to look into part time programs so that I can continue to work.  The kids need shoes after all ;)  Maybe if they offered me some $$$ I could change her mind.  

Off topic: Does anybody know whether if once accepted to a school's full time program it is easy to switch into their part time program?  I have not applied to any part-time programs and now in order to keep the better half happy I need to start looking into that possibility.

Congrats!  I also got in.  Heard back in December.  Not sure about whether I'll attend or not.  Boulder would definitely be nice...

Not sure if I would have had a decent shot, but kinda wished that I applied none the less. I wouldn't mind living in Colorado. Congrats!

CONGRATS!  They sent me the good news back in December.  Early this month they sent a $7500 scholarship offer for the first year only that I'll probably be freeing up in the next month or two.  (3.88/165/CO resident)

I looked into this with GA State.  They said you must enroll under the applied status for one year, after that you may submit a request to change it and it is my understanding that it is almost always granted.  Check with Colorado, but I surmise that all schools would have similar policies.

I was accepted in December, and just got a scholarhip today for $20K for the first year only.  It's real nice, but their first deposit is due at the beginning of April.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do, as I plan on visiting some schools in early April.
