I hate and love this thread. Keeps me moderately sane, cuz others are going through same crud as me, while slowly driving me insane, because others are getting that feeling of relief before me. Still nothing here (application complete)
Yeah! I agree, the waiting process is extremely nerve-racking when other people are getting in all the time. Just think a decision HAS to come soon.
By the way (to everyone reading this) if you are considering big scholarships, think again.
Scroll to the "Grants and Scholarships" heading and look at those numbers.
Median grant amount 3,400. Half to full tuition 5 people (0.4%), Full tuition 1 person (0.1%) and more than full tuition 1 person (0.1 %)
What this means to me: that VERY few people get anything, and of those like 99% get far less than half tuition. It appears that the median grant amount of 3,400 would actually just be from the Texas Tuition Equalization Grant, which is availible to private schools to help offset the difference from public school's costs (supposedly around 2,000-4000 awarded) So, basically we shouldn't expect much, if anything. It is hard to justify an estimated cost of "49,640" when Arkansas in Little Rock is 11,000 per year without any scholarship (plus low living cost, and they give residency rates to all students) but then again, I love Texas and was so impressed by the Trial Advocacy program at my visit there that STCL is really worth the extra dough.
Anyone else having to make a big decision between this school, that specifically meets your interests and another, much cheaper, respectable school?
