You sound lovely, do tell more.

Withdrawals don't always get processed right away.

No and I refuse to make one after making one for this one thing and then was forever labled as facebook.

Anyone else planning on attending ASW.

Personally, no, it's not worth it at all. You'll get all the UIowa Law you'll need at ASW.

Sorry, let me try again. When I did an AmeriCorps program I created the facebook page for our class. Once the program began everyone knew me as the girl who created the facebook group and I ended up being nicknamed facebook.

Also I booked a room in the hotel on campus for the 13th.

It's hard to explain and it would 100% out me. My plan is to spend Thursday morning searching for housing and then I'll stay with a friend the other night.

Um. Wow. Received a letter from Dean Byrd offering me a Legal Opportunity Fellowship (over $100k of aid plus a position as a research assistant).

...and this was sent after I withdrew...

I'm honestly not sure what to do now... :|

Well if Iowa is now a school you are considering again, then I'd call tomorrow and explain that the scholarship has changed your situation and you'd like to cancel your withdrawal if you will.

Wow, just got an email saying that they decided to remove all stipulations from scholarships this year. Instead of the top third stip, all you have to do is remain in good academic standing. Game changer.

For sure, wasn't even considering them with the top third stipulation.
Quickly moved to a top choice with only needing to remain in good academic standing.

I just received an email indicating that they have taken all stipulations off my full scholarship, as long as I remain in "good academic standing".

164, 3.66 - my offer (stips now removed) is $47,252 for the first year, then, from the looks of things I'm considered a resident for the next two and is $26,274 with an additional $2,175 RA stipend for each of those years.

I'm guessing 167 you should be close to full ride if you GPA is at or above median.
