    Wow, what wonderful news!!! I remember reading last summer, and I'm sure she must be on cloud nine (or should I say cloud 21)!!!! Congrats on the scholarship as well.

    Is she feeling better physically? Are you getting proper sleep now, or still on the couch next to her?

    Really wonderful, wonderful news...so happy for you all!

    So happy to read your good news this morning! (Though I'll admit I've been kinda hoping she'd choose Syracuse, since we attend their amazing MT productions and it would be nice to be able to say we saw your d pre-Tony.) What a wonderful scholarship offer - as you know, NYU is NOT generous with merit aid, and it means they recognize her talent and want her lots.

    Waiting to hear about her eventual decision!

    Hi Susan,

    [size=+2] Congratulations [/size]

    NYU/Tisch/ CAP21/ Scholarship- Priceless

    I hope to see you in the fall as I am dashing off to class (Don't tell her that as it may scare her off to know you've got friends on campus :) )

    Such wonderful news.

    For those who know anything about the world of performing arts, an NYU Tisch acceptance is like an Early acceptance to HYPS or MIT. Given much earlier posts of yours about your D (pre-accident), on much earlier threads, it was actually clear to me that she might be a Tisch likely.

    Bask in the good news, & may that help in speedy healing.

    You have many reasons to congratulate yourselves (as a family!)

    I am so glad so many things are going right for you now. The other thing to keep in mind, in the back of your head, is that NYU has a great medical and rehabilitation center, so if your d. needs any follow-up care, I am sure her current docs can give you names of folks to follow up with in the City.

    Hope your older d. got lots of pictures at Snowbird. The view from the top of the mountain when you get off the gondola, looking over the other mountains and down into the Salt Lake City valley is unreal. And thats some story about getting special escorts through the canyon. I didn't know they did that. I just went onto the Snowbird website and saw that they are expecting another 26 inches!!! They plan to stay open til mid May!! Skiing in the Rockies, especially above the treeline in the big open bowls is a totally different experience than skiing in the NE, which can be icy, and crowded. I am so glad your daughter got to experience it. She was also probably awakened by the avalance cannons they fire in the early mornings. Thats another interesting experience-- to be awakened by cannons!

    It is a treat sharing the positive news with CC "friends". I didn't have one in the app. process this year, so get to share the excitement with you. I am sure you still have a giant smile on your face, and I have one for you, and Berurah. Looking forward to more to come!

    The Smith coach sounds like one CLASS ACT.

    Fabulous news, Susan! I am so happy for your daughter and know she must be absolutely elated. I hope she has a rapid recovery and is feeling better soon. It sounds as though she has a rough couple of months ahead with therapy, etc., but the prize at the end will be so worth the hard work. CONGRATULATIONS and a big GET WELL SOON to her!

    I have tears in my eyes as I read this thread...
    how wonderful for your daughter and your entire family...
    life is good, life is bad, life is GREAT......your resiliency as you have handled your daughter's accident is admirable....
    the only thing in life that one can really control is our attitude and you guys have mastered that skill.....you daughters go after what they want full throttle and are a testament to what is possible with focus and determination and joy!
    Your daughter has a lot in front of her, certainly this will make it all worth while.
    This is just so satisfying, watching all the children blossom in front of our computer screens! HOORAY!

    Susan -

    You know we all kvell with you on this. But you MUST tell your daughter this and she MUST remember this: When she is famous, she will have many people coming up to her and saying, "We sort of know you. We followed your last year of HS and your success in getting into college. We cried our eyes out when we heard of your accident and felt so much joy when everything turned out OK. You've never met us, but we know you..... Can we have an autograph!??!"

    Congratulations. We all think that our sons and daughters are bright, talented, and will be successful, but I think that your D's brightness, talent, and future success has been super-recognized by the people who would know!

    - Bob
