The bottom line is that I think I will be a lot happier at UCLA and therfore will perform better.  I can't face Charlottesville (basically going back home) after 4 years in New York City.  I'd rather be in a place where I can have fun, enjoy life, feel like my professors expect a lot out of me and will put personal interest in me, and really succeed.  Rather than being in a place where I will just muddle through somewhere in the middle of my class. 

And I'm extremely lucky that my parents are footing the bill and will pay for me to go where I want to.

Oh! If your parents are springing for your place, would they mind covering the tuition of a houseboy, too? I clean well and give better massages.

OOH!  The mail just arrived back home in Virginia today, and my mother tells me UCLA is giving me $25,000 a year!   :D

Man, do am I ecstatic and relieved... but now I have to maintain a 2.5 GPA.   :-\  just kidding.

i bet your parents are happy. Tell them they should give you the extra 25k each year.

Congratulations!  Did you send in your seat deposit before you were notified of the scholarship?  If so, that's pretty nice of them :)

Thanks guys!  There was no seat deposit, but I had already confirmed my attendance.  I think the admissions dept had some major problems this year, but once I got in touch with the right people, they were really helpful.
