Ds got his first acceptance today--to Cedarville, where his best buddy goes.

 

We aren't done the Common app, but Cedarville doesn't use it and so it got in first.

 

I definitely had the last minute jitters about messing it up.

 

But I guess not!

 

He is still doing other applications, but what a relief that he has an acceptance in hand as he does them.

You should edit the title to make this the 2018 Acceptance Thread! :laugh: Or wait, the 2017 Acceptance Thread?

 

ETA: :hurray: :hurray: :party:

What?? A 2018 acceptance thread already??? *faint*

I have a senior, but we aren't planning to do any applications until Christmas!

Congratulations on your acceptance! My son is a senior at Cedarville this year. He absolutely loves it there. Our pocketbook doesn't love it, but he does. 😁

We are both in shock, too. Ds got an e-mail and told me in a bemused tone.

His best friend and friend's sister both go and love it. They seem to now have a pastor's kid scholarship and he qualifies for the diversity scholarship based on being from a diverse area and having lived (and been born) abroad as well as merit aid. So, with a loan and work--if he gets the scholarships, we may be able to swing it. We'll keep applying other places because he really needs to go where he gets the money.

I know!  I had a bit of a panic when I saw the title!   :willy_nilly: 

 

Dd is still working on essays; nothing's been sent off yet. I already feel like Nov 1st is practically next week.

My ds got accepted to Cedarville, too, for next year.  We were traveling to physical therapy when he looked down at his phone and announced the news...and it was only AUGUST!!!  :hurray:

Excellent!  It was so nice to have an unexpected acceptance and not have the waiting and hoping (though I think that will happen at some point for some of the schools).

Lol... I keep responding to this thread...

I have (another - lol) son who is a senior at LeTourneau this year. Like his twin brother who loves Cedarville U, he equally loves LETU. It has been a great fit for him.

After the stress of college apps and acceptances last year, I am extremely happy to only be a follower on this thread.  

We need an emoji option where it shows someone kicked back, drinking coffee.  Since that option doesn't exist, I guess I'll just eat popcorn  :lol:

Dd was accepted last month to University of North Florida. It was her first choice, so she already accepted and is looking at the different residence halls.

Unless she gets into Stanford and we find some spare money lying around LetU is her first choice at the moment. Nobody around here has heard of it, nor do they understand why someone with her stats would want to go there but everytime she talks to them she just lights up. Whether she will end up there once finances are figured out hard to say. She has some great scholarship options already and I am sure more will come. Now if she will just hit submit on some of her other applications....

DD has filled out early applications for 3 colleges so far and has already been accepted to all three!

 

Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, AZ

Boyce College, Louisville, KY

Corban University, Salem, OR

 

She is currently leaning towards Grand Canyon, because it would be the closest to us.  Still no definite decision yet.

Ds2 received two acceptances this weekend! Loras College and Clarke University in Iowa. So far these are the only two applications he has done. He may add a couple more, but probably not.

 

If he doesn't like them when he visits in a month or so, he might be motivated to apply to a few more schools. :lol:

Ds just received a LOA to West Point!!! (Does that count? Still need the nomination, but our district isn't *extremely* competitive.)

Also, he received acceptance to Wisconsin Lutheran College a few days ago.

With my youngest a senior in college now and middle son in med school, I'll join you with the popcorn.  It's pretty darn nice having the stress off and just being able to celebrate with others!

My ds has all four of his acceptances already:

East Tennessee State University
Middle Tennessee State University
Tennessee Tech
University of Tennessee-Knoxville

No secret what state we live in. Lol. This kid was easy- in state public university all the way. Best of luck to those of you with a more rigorous and stressful application season.

Amen. There were a couple months when I couldn't even read the 2017 thread because I would leave it all stressed out.

I'm so happy for folks getting acceptances (as I was last year too).

For everyone still waiting, hang in there.

My DH is a LETU grad. I'm hoping DS will want to go there when he starts applying (in 6 or so years. HA!)

 

Congrats to all who have already heard!

I havent met many frim LetU but they all seemed to enjoy it! The rep is going to be in our area at the end of the month and emailed DD to meet up with her/us and answer questions etc.
