  1. DD decided after a great admitted student day visit and a 'shadow a student day' experience. Where: University of New Hampshire Why: full tuition, also several visits that kept giving more and more reasons to love it, close to home Major: linguistics, possibly double major (French)
  2. I would supply only what the school has requested, but since you are up against a close deadline, I suggest calling the school to see if it's necessary. Might save you a lot of work!
  3. Spot on for us, too, within $1000-$2000. Some NPCs didn't include merit aid in the calculation, so that part was a big question mark until merit was awarded upon admittance.
  4. Oh, my! I laughed out loud! Thanks for sharing.
  5. Sorry to hear about Duke, but congrats on your DD's decision to attend UNC at Chapel Hill. Best wishes to her!
  6. DD bounces back quickly--but man, what a brutal night. All she wanted was her favorite--chocolate tsunami--and they had run out! She settled for black raspberry and there were smiles on the ride home.
  7. DD disappointed--no from Harvard and Yale. She took the Harvard one ok, but is quite sad about Yale. Time for a trip to the local ice cream stand. Hoping for better news for the rest of you waiting.
  8. Congrats! So happy for you and your DD!
  9. Last two decisions today for DD. We are bracing ourselves for the rejections... I'll be glad when this part is over. It's bittersweet, though, as this is my youngest and our homeschooling journey is soon coming to a close. Good luck to all!
  10. "USS Indecision sets sail"--love it! Witty and SO true!
  11. It's hard to look back and 2nd guess. Your DS did what he thought was the right decision at the time, and at a time when these kids are overloaded with making these big decisions. It's SO hard on them! My DD was quite ill for six weeks during the fall and missed all the ED/EA rounds. She just simply couldn't keep up the pace of the application process and her heavy, demanding senior course-load. She is now wishing she could've at least hit a few EA's and maybe an ED round, because the waiting is grating on her (and me!), but there's no going back. Just moving forward and hoping it'll play out so that she has some options. Best wishes to your son as the next few weeks bring the rest of the decisions. And best wishes to everyone else on the list, too! We'll get through this!
  12. So sorry! That acceptance rate is approaching Harvard's last year and is lower that Yale's was! Yikes.
  13. DS took a gap year to work on his repertoire for college auditions and piano examinations, and he worked at this job, too, to save money. Taking the gap year wasn't a problem with institutional scholarships. Some outside scholarships for high school seniors, though, may have a stipulation that the student must attend the fall following graduation. I will add that DS was able to secure some rather sizable outside scholarships (renewable) during his gap year and even during his first two years of college. They are out there, and if you get good enough aid at the school of choice, then it doesn't come into the equation at all. DS's path has not been linear, for sure, but he's getting great support financially.
  14. Southern New Hampshire University DS is transitioning to their campus program in the fall, but he has taken some online courses with SNHU. They offer courses over 6 semesters and the courses run for 8 weeks. They offer a wide range of online degree programs.
