    When I went downstairs to tell H about your D and Berurah's S, it occurred me that I probably had the wrong award for MT - it is musical THEATER, after all - but I am glad it gave you a laugh and you got my point! We've also had good news here, but I am waiting until it is all in to post anything official. But I do look forward to doing that!

    Where did you get the information about Tisch Saturday at the Square invites being sent to the top 5%? My son also got one, but when he called, they were very vague about what it meant....eg. "select group of the strongest applicants"..... Still no "official" acceptance. Congratulations to your daughter!

    Susan! I am so happy for you and your D! NYU/Tisch/Cap21 must REALLY want her with all those wonderful benefits, and that is an amazing scholarship offer for NYU. (Did you consider yet that maybe this was a big plus NOT to go ED for NYU, since they made such a great offer RD?) A big bouquet of cyber-roses for your D and a matching one for her devoted mom.

    Soozie - a friend of mine teaches singers in the CAP 21 studio. They know what they are doing there.

    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!)

    That is a GREAT result for your D! :D

    Congrats and enjoy and do continue to keep us all posted!

    Susan and D:

    Congrats and it couldn't have come at a better time! We've been thinking of you and your D here in Maryland and keeping her in our prayers. I know this news will really help the healing and keep her going during the therapy process. Congratulations!! :) :) :)

    Congratulations to your daughter #2! ( We also followed the happy news last year from daughter #1.)

    I hope you are still around sharing all your stories when we get to child #2 decisions in our family. - Keep in mind, she's only in middle school!

    Congratulations!!! We are all dancing with joy for your daughter. Great news with the acceptance and the scholarship.
