<3 Iowa but just come out with it.

I received no such letter. Dean Byrd probably saw my name, shuddered, and went on to the next name on the list.

It was signed by Dean Jones. Maybe she doesn't like bunnies?

It also said to call and talk to them. I think they're crushing on me. :oops:

Yeah, I got it a couple weeks ago. Are you saying that I'm not the special, unique snowflake that I was lead to believe?

+1
Which is especially interesting as my research is completely unrelated to any clinic offered, so they just left that part out. :lol:

Not at all. I'm saying that special uniqueness won't buy us snowflakes crap.

Better now?

I received something like that a long time ago (before ASW) that mentioned one of the companies I worked for and how it related to something at the school.

But more importantly, I'm still going to Iowa in the fall ;)

This Webcam points northward from the Hydraulics Laboratory of the university's world-renowned IIHR. It captures a live view of the campus and the picturesque Iowa River, which is central to city and university life.
From this vantage one can see the University Library, which holds one of the nation's largest public-university collections, and the University's English-Philosophy Building. Beyond the distant river span-the Iowa Avenue Bridge-is Hancher Auditorium, which has been lauded by critics to be among finest performing arts facilities in the country. The white building at top-center of this view is the Levitt Center for University Advancement.

I didn't get one, but they already told me I had to do it as part of my scholarship, so maybe they decided that I didn't warrant a 'special snowflake' letter :)

I'd like to know if there are any youngish parents aged 23 - 35'ish with babies/toddlers that will be attending.
It would be nice to get a small group together for park days, play dates, etc.

Please feel free to PM me with contact info so we can make plans in August!

Yup, second one is due in mid-June.
Feel like babysitting? (J/K)

But seriously, I can bring the newborn to study sessions with me.
She will challenge us to keep focused. Eh?

"baby smell." Yeah, that's a classy way to put it. :lol:
If any of you future Iowa 1L's are reading this... don't worry, I was kidding!
No babies in class, I promise.

You will all be pleased to know that they have reconsidered the merit money situation at least partially.

Iowa just blew me out of the fucking water with a full ride.

1L:grant for non-res and another to make up the difference.

2L & 3L: grant for res and a guaranteed RA job.

You're welcome... I obviously don't know if it has or will have any impact on anyone, but I initially sent in a deposit and accepted Iowa's full ride in March only to notify them a week ago that I had changed my mind.

I'm sure that over the next few months as people get off of waitlists, a few more scholarships could open up.

Anyway, congrats.

I did but I don't think it made much of a difference.

How were you notified, mikey? E-mail, snail mail, phone call? Telepathy? Smoke signal? Carrier pigeon?
