Boss!! What an amazing offer! I've gotta say that no student loans = opportunity to work wherever you want upon graduation. I know it'll be a hard decision, but I would LOVE to be close to my family during school! It would be such a stress reliever.


You are such a sweetie, mothering on this board!  I <3 you!  Maybe we'll both luck out and get to hang out at UT next year!

I guess I should have prefaced the family comment that it's also the crazy wing of my family -- like totally psycho.  But at least it will be nice to be able to drive 2 hours and have some family even if it's the crazy ones.  :P

What's really attractive about UA is that you can get in-state tuition relatively easily, so if I don't maintain the scholarship, it's still awfully cheap.  And being frugal is what turns me on!
It's been brought to my attention that boss is my favorite poster  :-*

1. Yes! And for me, it would be the equivalent of taking out a loan on the all of the luck I was supposed to have for the rest of my life! Haha... at least until the ding comes I can keep my [literal] dream alive. :)

2. Hahahahahahaha.... yes, you should have mentioned that. At least they will be good for entertainment value and future story telling. :)

Thanks y'all. But really, let's nix the "you're nice" comments -- it makes me look like I'm fishing for compliments, when really I'm just trying to give some out! This thread is supposed to celebrate people's acceptances, and I've always been a sucker for celebrating!

Holy Schnikeys....

Just got a phone call from the Dean of Alabama.  I'm accepted and with a full tuition scholarship!! 

Then I mentioned that my relatives in Alabama would definitely be supportive of me attending, he offered "well we'd love to have to visit and we'll pick up the tab for your travel expenses.  I'll make a note on your file here."

Oh my goodness!!  I'm completely floored.  I applied there on a whim thinking I won't go at all, but full tuition sweetens the deal...

congrats!!
can i have your spot in line at ut?

Ok guys, in at Yale.  And as I've stated earlier:  If a Yale acceptance were to come along, NOTHING else in my world would matter... I have thus withdrawn from absolutely everywhere but Yale.  It's been one amazing miracle after another.  First UMich and then Yale.  I'm ecstatic!!  Oh, and I haven't slept in going on 48 hours either.   ;D
