    Well, I know there's one more for now! Just mailed out my "thanks but no thanks" letters to UConn and Tufts. Man oh man....I hate to say it....but......IT FELT GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY didn't meet MY needs!!!!

    Both are amazing and wonderful schools and it was excruciating....I wish everyone the best of luck!

    SOOOOO...Buffalo or Penn? Or are you gonna send in deposits for both schools and then make up your mind? I bet you're hoping for a Dean's Scholarship from Penn :D

    Well I'm around 95% sure it's going to be Buffalo :)D yay!)....NOT just for money; for a million other reasons and after getting an enormous amount of info from students and grads. Even if I got the dean's scholarship, Penn would still be around 40K more, and I just have a better "feel" for my appropriateness at Buffalo. However, I'm a little apprehensive about saying a definite until I hear back from both about financial aid and the like, so I'm going to go ahead and do both deposits. I realized I really don't have to rush, since most of the financial aid stuff won't go through until April. I am NOT trying to be malicious and hold two spots!!! I just can't decide. I already withdrew at Tufts.


    As for UConn though, JUST as I was leaving my apartment to mail my withdrawal letter, I got a new letter saying I got the $5000 merit scholarship! ARGH! Are they TRYING to screw with me as much as possible??!?!?!?!

    Does anyone know if this is a one-time scholarship or if you get $5000 every year?

    I just got a 10 K merit scholarship from UConn, and it is for four years... so I am sure yours is too. Congratulations! So does that change your mind at all? I am still trying to decide whether I want to say thanks but no thanks to them also... I am having a hard time deciding!!!

    I am pretty sure they are per year because I talked to Dr. T about the scholarships prior to recieving one. But if you have any doubts call him yourself... he is very helpful. Where else are you considering nyching?

    As for my stats ems5184:
    GPA: 3.9 overall, 4.0 science
    DAT: 22/22/22

    Have you made a decision nyching? Does the scholarship have any influence on your choice if it's just for one year now?
