Well, not yet, but the suggestion that she should have her own thread was a good one.

She got her second response from a university today. Accepted. Two for two so far.

The campfires she's shared with all of us at Pinnacles might comprise an AP class in something!

Just now she heard from the third of five schools she applied to; in this case it's her first choice, numero uno.

And I forgot to answer Kat's question.

But Vicki just put a fantastic looking dinner on the table. Details later...

She’s now been accepted at three out of the three that she's heard from. In order: the University of Idaho, Moscow; Washington State in Pullman, and, heard from tonight, her first choice, (QUACK) the University of Oregon (in Eugene). The Ducks.

I'm pretty sure I know where she's going to end up (man was she smiling).

Wow, this is a weird one to type and have it come out not sounding weird.

Lemme try it this way. Tricia won't need financial aid. In fact, we haven't even considered asking for financial aid. She won't qualify.

This evening she got an email. I'm not sure I can even type the number without sounding crass.

Based only on her GPA and SAT scores, her number one choice is offering her financial aid. A hell of a lot of financial aid. It makes me think that they really want her to attend there.

I know I am biased, but DAMN I'm proud of her.

 That is great, making her own way. Wonder where she got that from?

I never had any doubt that T would be writing her own ticket.

She's smart, funny, talented and as hard working a person as I've ever known.

Well done young lady... Thumb Up Dude Yes Nod Big Grin
