    The good news? I don't have to worry about paying for college any more. I've been accepted at Dominican University, and they're offering me $15,000 a year in scholarships, which is like three-quarters of tuition. It's the closest thing to a full ride that I'm going to get. Since it's close enough that I can commute from my parents' house, I don't have to worry about my room and board, either.

    The bad news? I really, really wanted to move out to the Phoenix area, and it looks like that's not going to happen for another four years. *sigh* Dominican's a good school, and I would be out of my mind to turn down this offer, but I'm rather disappointed that I'm staying in the Bay Area.

    Still, there's another point of good news: since money won't be so much of a problem, I'll probably be able to visit more often. Also, I'm pretty sure that IA hasn't completely ruled out the possibility of just kidnapping me and dragging me out there. ;)

    Don't let he fact that it's a Catholic school fool you. The dress code is actually pretty lame.

    Well, congrats on the acceptance, MHEH! Too bad you won't be in Phoenix, though.

    Thanks. :) My mom drove me down to the university and we walked around a bit... it's very beautiful, though I actually liked the ASU campus slightly more, I think... still, it's a lovely campus. It's about 35 miles from my house, so about 45 minutes to an hour in rush hour traffic.

    On a side note, in slightly more than 8 hours I will be 18 years old. (I was born at 4:08 in the morning.)

    [face_laugh] Looks like a certain Admiral we know is a little excited at your impending legal adulthood... ;)

    HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY!!!

    And congratulations on the scholarship, they make all the difference. If I hadn't gotten scholarships there's no way I'd be where I am today.

    Congratulations on the scholarship!! :D :D That's fantastic news!! Bummer that it's not ASU, but having your tuition paid for versus having to pay out-of-state student tuition... gee, that's a hard choice. ;) Very cool!!

    And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! :D

    Yay! Evil Twin is 18 and LEGAL!! [face_devil] Oh what havoc we shall wreak upon the innocents. ;) :D

    Hope you get what you asked for! :)
