    Hi Parents of 2017! My D was accepted to the University of Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, the University of South Carolina and the University of Maryland. She wasn't accepted to the University of Virginia or The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She's really excited to attend Bama - been talking about if for years. We are nervous
    as is far from home (we live in MD), but we know it is a great school! Any insight on Bama would be appreciated! Thank you!

    My son has been accepted into The University of Colorado Boulder and Colorado Springs, UIUC, Texas A&M and UT Dallas, just waiting to hear from UT Austin (#1 pick). He is a Mechanical Engineering major.

    I also was accepted at University Colorado-Boulder but the merit aid offered was not competitive with what IU Bloomington offered me. I was also accepted at Georgia Tech and University Michigan Ann Arbor. Waiting on 4 other schools, UChicago (deferred), Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, and Cornell all regular decision. It will come down to affordability, all great schools and I'm sure I would be happy at any of them. Visiting UMich for the first time next week. I'm pretty excited about that!

    @stem2021,

    You will love UMichigan. My D spent two weeks there at a summer camp, and would have happily attended there if she didn't get into her reach school.

    Thank you for the reply! I am really looking forward to seeing the campus. What school is your daughter attending?@hebegebe
  • hebegebehebegebe Registered User Posts: 1,541 Senior Member
    She will be UChicago, class of 2021. Good luck to you on your UChicago application.

    Thank you! Congratulations to your daughter! It was (is) my #1 choice and was disappointed at being deferred but then I saw how many really strong students were deferred and didn't feel so bad. I did not do ED but rather EA as I couldn't commit until I knew the cost and if we could swing it. Will see what happens! @hebegebe

    My son applied to 3 schools, only one EA to which he was accepted: Villanova. He was accepted into the Honors College there as well. Waiting to hear from Stanford (reach) and RPI. We live in the southwest so I am a bit nervous for his adventure so far from home! (Just being a mom! HA)

    He and my DH are going to Villanova this weekend for their Candidate's Day. I hope he loves it as much as he did when we toured it in the spring! I did read a thread on here that said it has a reputation of being a little snobby so I am kind of worried about that. We did not sense that AT ALL on our visit, so I was a little shocked to read it. Anyone from the Northeast that can set my mind at ease? :)

    My daughter is a freshman at Nova. She said today she is surprised she has liked everyone she meets. She thinks the people are all friendly and relatively down to earth. The energy on the campus is infectious, and you really see how much the students LOVE the school at Candidate's Day. Hope your son has a good visit-- feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.
