Anyway, I asked about putting down multiple deposits with a scholarship offer in hand at FSU, and she said it was fine. She also said that there is not a 2nd seat deposit after you pay the first one. Hope she's right!


Very good to know. Thanks for asking!


No problem! I assumed it was that way because I looked over the scholarship form recently and there were no stipulations on it, but I just wanted to check. I'm going to have to do this because my SO hasn't heard back from schools yet.

I'm like 90% sure at this point. So, not a definite, but close.

Just sent off my acceptance forms and seat deposit last night! Can't wait to move back to Tally! I am feeling really good about my decision.

Paid my seat deposit and mailed my residency info today! I'm still waiting for a response from UF, but even if they let me in, I was already on the fence about living in Gainesville...
So it's really looking like FSU for me too; I'm sure ASD Friday will only help convince me

I'm sending in my seat deposit tomorrow!
Interestingly enough, my decision ultimately was made once I saw the quality of dance studios around tally. Is that sad or what? UF has deprived me of my favorite hobby for four years. Had NO idea how much I missed it until I saw some videos and got super excited about moving to tally.

EDIT: I will probably change my mind again tomorrow morning.

My forms are in and deposit paid, as well. I'm probably the atypical applicant though. I knew what school I wanted to attend, and only applied to that one. So, I'm feeling pretty good about my decision too. :lol:

I got an email this morning telling me that my financial aid amounts had changed and I could access it via Blackboard...I was like ummmmm I never received any financial aid info or a Blackboard sign in. Clicked on the link and we can actually set up our Blackboard account and access our financial aid info. The exciting thing is, I have been given a 1000 grant! :-) It just keeps getting better.

Did it list your other scholarship? I was browsing on mine and can't see the existing offer, much less any changes.

No my scholarship was not on there. I think the change on mine could have been that $1000 grant.

I received the email, too! It lists the Stafford loan, but not the Grad Plus loan. Do some people have the Grad Plus loan? Also, it doesn't list my scholarship - I dunno why scholarships aren't showing up right now.

And NC, I'm jealous on your $1000 grant! I got one last year when I applied, but not this year :(

Do you think this is just for the first year?

Sorry you didn't get one this year :-(
It was quite a surprise for me.
