Today I received my first acceptance letter for college! I applied about a week ago to the University of Minnesota - Morris, one of the few public liberal arts colleges in the nation. AND on top of that, I got the highest automatic academic scholarship available: $14,000 over four years. Considering the cost is $18,000 per year, I'd say that's pretty nice, huh?

All I have to do is write and essay and interview in the spring and I could get a $20k scholarship with a $2500 stipend to use for studying abroad, or I could get a full ride! This is SO exciting, guys! YEEEEEEEE!!! It completely made my day. Actually, no. It made my year!


  1. Wow, congratulations!! That's super exciting news :)

  2. Just an update...I ended up being a scholarship finalist and going back on campus for an interview to get one of the other scholarships. I ended up getting the scholarship that will pay for two years of tuition plus a $2500 stipend. Maybe I won't be a poor hobo after college after all!
