Yeeeessssss! After 3 1/2 years of hard work, torment, and more than a little self-doubt, UT-Memphis finally came through with an offer of acceptance! I've been on a cloud for the last day (which doesn't bode well for my last exam tomorrow), so I don't have much perspective on this yet. However, as a 29 year-old returning student who attended a third tier public university, I'd like to give encouragement to all those in similar situations - don't even think about giving up, hard work DOES pay off. BTW, if anyone else has gotten into UT-Memphis (or has interviewed there), please let me know, I'd love to hear from you.
