College: Her Cup Runneth Over


We're very proud of Kotch. In October she figured out the three colleges she really wants to attend. She completed the application packets -- including hounding her college counselor to ensure timely submission of transcripts and recommendation letters -- and promptly forgot about them as she figured she'd here after Christmas.

Tuesday before Thanksgiving, she received an acceptance from her first choice.

Saturday after Thanksgiving, she received an acceptance from her close-second choice (including an amazing scholarship and today an invitation to apply for a total, free-ride scholarship)


Monday evening after Thanksgiving, she received a call from her third choice's admissions counselor who asked if she'd received her acceptance packet yet as they wanted to know what she needs to accept their offer.



Three applications ... three acceptances ... a scholarship in hand and the offer of more ...



Her cup runneth over!

My dd had similar things happen. She applied to and was accepted at 6 colleges all with some scholarship money. Two have the possibility of a full ride and three full tuition. She has been to one scholarship competition and is anxiously awaiting the letter; it's supposed to arrive before Christmas

I've been reading your blog for a bit but I think this is the first time I've left a comment. I just wanted to pass on my congrats to your daughter. That is amazing. I only hope my own children are able to pull that off. Very many congrats and I'm sure you're feeling a bit lighter not worrying as much over tuition. Colleges are so pricey now. MANY MANY congrats! Hard work pays off!
