Was complete on the 19th of that month, according to the email I received in late march. Should I give up on this school??? I have compelling offers but I like the school because of its geographic location. Just wondering if people think acceptances/money is gone. If there is no chance of a decent scholarship I'm out for sure. Stats are 168,3.3.
I'm probably not getting in and I have already deposited at a school I'd love to attend, but I have always had a thing for Indiana. The long and short of my LOCI: Indiana, I've wanted to attend your university since age 17. That was when I saw Breaking Away for the first time and I've probably seen it 8 times or so since. I would love to ride the little 500 and sing "Oh Indiana, We're All For You...." with my fellow classmates post race. Please let me in. I would want to attend even if you were ranked 50. That's how much I love that movie and your school as a result of the association. PS. I was glad to see Jackie Earl Haley reemerge after years of no substantive work. I most recently saw him the other night on "Human Target." Great actor. It's too bad Dennis Chrisopher hasn't been as successful as of late. I realize that Indiana U has no actual ties to these actors, but I will always associate them with IU. Anyway, I love your school.
I'm sending the same LOCI to Harvard but I'm substituting Soul Man for Breaking Away and I praise C Thomas Howell's early work before lamenting his lack of recent success.
