  1. Quoting myself to add that DS was offered appointment to USMA! No word from Madison or USNA yet.
  2. DS went into this process expecting to apply to 8+ schools, but ended up applying only to 4 - Florida Southern, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USMA, and USNA. He was accepted to Florida Southern awhile back and found out this week he won a 4 year Army ROTC scholarship to attend! Still waiting to hear from the other three schools. We'll see. He and my husband loved Florida Southern when they visited, so we're thrilled that he has such a wonderful opportunity.
  3. This is the one we are leading toward because it's the only one that's possibly offered three days a week which I think would be best for this child. Unfortunately, there's still no teacher or time listed. I kept checking as the early registration ended yesterday; I just can't sign up for something without being for certain of that the timing will work for us.
  4. Thank you for the additional suggestion and positive recommendation for the CLRC!
  5. I have no idea why that smiley face is so big! I can't erase it either. {blushing}
  6. Thank you for mentioning this! I had never heard of this company. Off to check it out ...
  7. Thank you! They don't have a teacher or day/time up for German 1 yet, but I am hopeful it's in a time that's do-able for us.
  8. Hello! I'm looking for online German 1 class recommendations for next year for my rising freshman. This child does not do well with self paced, student directed work, so looking for a live online class or possibly an experienced tutor (like Julia Denne of By the Onion Sea). Thank you!
  9. Where : Marquette University Why: 4 year AROTC scholarship + Marquette gives a $7,000 room and board scholarship to ROTC scholarship winners (none of the other ROTC colleges ds applied to have this 'sweetener') Major: BS Computer Science; considering BS in Computer Science / MBA program (five year program) You all saw my million posts in the acceptance thread and the angst that went into ds's senior year! I'm so grateful for everyone's advice, support, and encouragement!
  10. Unfortunately, we found out today he didn't get in the Carolina. But, that's ok. We are so darn stinkin' happy and grateful about the AROTC waiver! Just when it couldn't get better, we found out earlier this week that Marquette gives a $7,000 room and board sweetener to 4 year AROTC scholarship winners! So, it's Marquette!!!
  11. He originally won it back in December to UW-Madison, Marquette, and UNC-Chapel Hill. At the time he'd only been accepted to Marquette, so that's where he accepted it. Since then, he's also been accepted to Madison, but still waiting on Chapel Hill. There is a process to transfer schools, so that might be an option. Carolina is his #1. He's evenly split between Marquette and Madison. Hopefully this is making sense; just had an IPA to celebrate! ðŸ˜
  12. Y'all!!!! Y'all!!! I am crying here. AROTC just approved ds's vision waiver! Agency: US Army ROTC Cycle Year:2017 Current Medical Status: Medical waiver granted D155.70 Myopia - refractive error greater than -8.00 diopters (spherical equivalent) D259.50 Waiver Approved - AROTC I can't even believe it.
  13. I'm not sure. The email says, "You will be receiving your official acceptance packet in the mail with information regarding your student accounts and next steps within the next two weeks. " So, two weeks? This will be me waiting: :willy_nilly: So happy to (maybe) have an option that doesn't require a vision test! :party:
