Came home and didn't have a scholarship letter.

Now I know how Charlie Brown felt every time he opened his mail box.

Argh!

Maybe it's like Willy Wonka's golden ticket? The lucky glitter receivers get an exclusive tour of Notre Dame Stadium!

With a 35k per year scholarship and a bunch of other soft factors, NDLS is probably where I will end up - does anyone have any perspective on the best housing options? Especially info on rent/quality?

Well now I don't feel as dumb, just a little bit jealous :P


If I don't get glitter, Notre Dame can forget about me attending there. Would rather attend Appalachian Law over a school that skimps on the glitter.

YEAH! You've got to stand up to injustice!! Although a handsome scholly letter really does have a way of making up for other... deficiencies like a glorious speckling of golden sprinkles


YEAH!

"Dear Notre Dame,

I appreciate the full scholarship, but what the heck was the point in my applying there when I didn't even get glitter with my acceptance package. With that in mind, I would like to withdraw my name from being considered for the entering JD class of 2020 at your school. I will be attending John Marshall Law because they gave me a healthy serving of glitter with their acceptance postcard- truly a Different Kind of Law School."

Love,
Thomas."

As far as South Bend housing goes, there is:

1. FOG (Fischer / O'Hara-Grace), which is on campus and for graduate students only. FOG lacks a dishwasher, no in-unit laundry, must share a bathroom, can be furnished, and no covered parking. $630/mo., all-inclusive.
2. Overlook at ND, which is off campus (but adjacent) and for graduate students/faculty only. Relatively new, SS appliances, in-unit laundry, private bathroom (or shared if you want a roommate), can be furnished, and no covered parking. $900-$1500/mo., all inclusive.
3. Foundry, which is off campus (but adjacent) and for all people 21+. Relatively new, SS appliances, in-unit laundry, private bathroom, unfurnished, and covered parking. $1300+/mo., utilities not included.
4. Lots of apartments nearby
5. Lots of rental houses nearby

I looked hard and chose #2.

Ok here's my proof!! Most of the glitter ended up on my face, bed, and cats, but there are still a couple of specks left! :P also, that letter seems reasonable. Hahaha

So if the seat deposit boxes don't show immediately when the decision is made, does that mean ding/WL? Is there ever a slight delay? Looks like not writing those supplementals may have cost me!
