I have been accepted also, but will not consider unless I get a scholarship (I got a full ride at Toledo which happens to be my hometown). According to other posts, these MSU award letters were mialed out ~Feb.16. How seriously are you considering it? I like the joint-degree option with University of Ottawa and the fact that it is associated with a Big Ten school; this can only help rankings, resources, and alumni contacts going forward.
I am still waiting to hear from quite a few schools, but look forward to hearing from those interested in, or will be, attending MSU.
