One of my best friends grew up in Rochester. He's always talking about Garbage Plates from Tahous (sp?).

Has anyone in Houston received their letter?

The upstate NY chatter is making me miss it... mmmm Finger Lakes wines (Weimer Reisling makes life worth living). I went to Cornell (Ithaca) for undergrad, and the rents there were just about what they are in Austin.

But back to the OP, I got my scholarship note letter this week and I live in Tampa, so Houston folk should have gotten their letters by now, IMO.

As for getting scholarships, I got mine by requesting a matching scholarship from another school. People told me that the matching scholarships were only for scholarships given from higher-ranked schools, but I put in a request for matching funds offered by a school ranked in the mid-20s in USNWR. UT gave me a tiny bit less than the other school, but UT will still be cheaper because of the lower tuition  ;D.

Anyway, happy letter-writing!

I just got mine yesterday and I'm in Austin. Perhaps they are staggering when they send them out (alphabetically or otherwise)?

I'm receiving the "George Rice Scholarship." anyone know who this is? From googling it, I think he may be a Texas environmentalist.

If anyone knows, that would be great, because it would be neat to know who I'm thanking.

I live in Houston and received a letter for one of my scholarships but not the other.

Received mine Saturday. Mailman lamented the hordes of left socks that he had to abandon in order to deliver the mail dutifully and in a timely manner.

In other news: when I received the first notification for my scholarship, it had a fancy name. Now it does not. What gives?
