2015 College Acceptances - List Only UPDATED 7/29/2015

Recommended Posts

Several people have asked me to make a separate post for the college admission list as we have done in past years, so here goes.

This thread will be a cumulative list of the college acceptances for the Class of 2015. I will update the list in this first post regularly so that it is comprehensive. Because this thread is just for keeping a cumulative list, please chat about the admission in the thread "2015 College Admissions - Is This Where it Goes?"

In order to have an acceptance added to the cumulative list, please post to this thread with the following info:

Is it your son or daughter?
Name of College or University (please include the city if the university has multiple campuses and/or there is more than one university with the same name).
If your student received scholarships, state "scholarship"
If your student was admitted to the Honors College, include that
If your student is joining the ROTC (any branch), note that as well.

Example:
Daugher
University of North Carolina, Greensboro
Scholarship
Honors College

Another example:
Son
University of North Carolina, Wilmington

Last yr, each parent took the original list like TechWife created and copied and pasted it into the reply box and added additional schools and info. That way no one person was having to take time to maintain the list. Everyone was doing it for their own child(ren). It was Jenny in FL's idea and it worked well (except for people who couldn't cut and paste, etc. Others would help them out.)

Oh, and ds's scholarships are just over a half ride at U of MI in Ann Arbor, and full at the extension campus. Alma College came to just slightly more than a half ride.

 

This list is wonderful! Truly inspiring, and so much fun! :party:

Thanks for the catch! I had it in on my notepad but forgot to put it here! I only see one though, are there more? Just let me know. 

 

Everyone has done such a great job - I wish we could have a grad ceremony together.

No idea if there are others as I just remember being so happy for the two who got into MIT this year, so I noticed it missing.  I'm sure everyone will be looking for theirs and let you know if anything's missing.  You really have done a very nice job!  And congrats to all the students and parents!  

 

On edit, I have no idea why I thought two were accepted.  Congratulations to Snowbeltmom's MITer!

I was never comfortable sharing publicly where my daughter was attending college; others might also feel this way.  If so, perhaps they can send a personal message to you, TechWife, and ask you to add their child's information as "AnonBoardMember" or some such.

Kareni

It's been a while since I was active on the boards, which were a huge blessing to me when I took the homeschooling plunge 8 years ago. I read TWTM and felt compelled to give my dc a better education than they were receiving at private school. I could not have navigated this process without the veteran homeschool parents here and SWB's wisdom and practical advice. I was in way over my head. I depended on the ladies here for daily/weekly help and encouragement.

I did not imagine the impact that classical homeschooling would have on my kids. Latin helped launch my older dd into the world of languages. She is passionate about Spanish and French and is looking at linguistics courses. I could go on about the benefits of TWTM. It radically changed our world. I'm so thankful. It still influences my decisions with younger dds.

Not sure if this will encourage a younger mom who wonders if all the planning and sacrifice is worth it. It is. You are in good hands here.

In terms of college news, dd is most likely choosing UW in Seattle. We visited last week. It is truly magical.

Here is her list:

UW
UC Irvine Honors
UCSD
UCSC
Seattle U - Trustee Scholarship 4 years
Sarah Lawrence
(Wait-listed NYU)

 

ETA: Pepperdine

The joys of having a transfer - dd is still waiting to hear from one school. Supposedly the notify date for that school is mid-April. Aaargh!

 

She is transferring from a LAC after her freshman year because she has decided to pursue a conservatory education.

 

Accepted to:

Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University (merit aid)

University of North Carolina School of the Arts (merit aid)

 

If anyone wants to hear about the transfer application journey, please PM me. The process is surprisingly different from applying as a freshman and about four times as frustrating. Dd is ecstatic about her options, so it was a worthwhile process albeit a difficult one.

Just felt like bumping this up top one more time.

 

With all the discussion about college and if it is really worth it and all the ins and outs I am feeling a little blue about the whole thing.

 

BUT - no matter where they all end up next year this list represents a lot of good, old fashioned effort all the way around.

 

Congrats to the Class of 2015! And congrats to the parents who encouraged, organized, taught, drove, and all the rest!

 

And here's to TechWife, for keeping it all straight! :cheers2:

Still not completely sure where he will be attending. He initially wanted a small lac but now that he has researched Rochester more he is heavily leaning towards that. I can't believe he might be going to school so far away!

The airport is close enough that my "genius" son was leaving his dorm room at 5am for a 6am flight.  The line for security was "long" (for this airport).  He still made his flight with 10 minutes to spare (phew!).  One ought to remember that they close the doors for flights prior to departure time (no delay).  Cab cost is $15 in general, but he had a friend take him, so the cost was essentially a bought dinner or treat somewhere.

 

If you're fortunate enough to have Southwest at an airport near you... they've worked well for us.  One can still check two free bags with Southwest.

 

Best wishes with his decision!
