...The lack of scholarship cash makes the decision. I'm not sure that Houston gave PT scholarships to begin with, let alone now that their budget has been axed. The fact that they won't invest $0.44 in a stamp to send an acceptance letter isn't a good sign.
I was probably a bit too negative regarding postage and scholarship frugality at UofH. Perhaps they're saving all that postage so that somebody on the board can score a fat stack of cash. I'm afraid, however, that won't be me. I received the following in an email at the end of last week in response to a question about scholarships:
"Our scholarship budget is not designated as full-time or part-time, but rather it is one pool of money. We have made some awards and will make additional offers in the next week or so and continue to make offers into the summer as funds are available."
That sounds to me like a gentle way of saying that I should not expect $$ from Houston. ...strikes and gutters, ups and downs... Withdrawing today. Good luck everybody.
