    So I guess I will start the ball rolling.

    D2 was accepted this week to LSU! She is the first kid in her class to have one in the bag and thrilled to know that no matter what else may come, she will be a "college girl" next fall. Three other applications completed with a couple more to go. Good luck to all and Geaux Tigers!

    S received acceptance to the University of Alabama with the Presidential Scholarship! He is the first in his class as well to receive an acceptance. It's a great way to start off senior year.

    D has received academic acceptance to the only two schools she applied to - Belmont University and Catawba College!!! Although final acceptances are pending upcoming music auditions (one this week, one in November), a lot of the pressure has been relieved.

    congrats to everyone so far.

    DD logged on today to see an acceptance from Auburn. It is the only school she applied to and the only one she wants to go to. Now we wait to see how much funding she is offered.

    War Eagle!

    S got accepted into Drexel. It was his safety school, so now for the rest of the admission season, he can take some risks....

    congrats to your S, lizmane! Mine sent his app to Drexel a couple of weeks ago, still waiting to hear; his safety also. The ED app to his #1 went more recently, they have a late ED notification, Jan 15, so it would be good to hear back from Drexel.

    mamabear,

    it will take another couple of weeks for you to hear from Drexel. Funny thing is, D did not get email from them. He found out by doing a status check. He found out also today that he got $11500 in merit scholarship. Again, funny enough, it was not on the status check page which said "congrats. you are accepted" on their web site. He only found out that he got it when he followed the link for admitted student information and such.

    D's received her acceptance a few days ago from the University of Texas Austin! She is still waiting to hear about admittance on one of the Honors Programs (one of which is her "dream" program)

    Hook'em Horns!

    And congrats to everyone above me!

    thanks!

    Meanwhile, I have a question for the sages here.

    my son was accepted by Drexel with $11500 of merit award based on his old SAT score.

    his new score came up today and it went up quite nicely. I believe now this puts him in a top few % range given that his CR+M is well over 200 points above their average CR+M, and CR+M+W is well over 300 points of their average CR+M+W.

    I wonder it if is possible to ask the admissions officer to up his merit aid - thinking, if he had applied after his new scores came out, they may have given him better merit aid. Have you heard of a case like this????

    Drexel is his safety. However, if the merit award is outstanding, it may change his priority.

    College Shopping _ congrats to your D! and fingers crossed she gets into the honors program.

    Lizmane - I remember reading on the '10 board that merit would sometimes be increased if better SAT/ACT scores were submitted. Definitely worth a call. Seems like lots of '11's on CC are applying to Drexel this year.

    Lizman - YES call your son's recruiter ASAP and let them know about the new scores. Ask if this will make a difference in the award, or help in any other scholarships he may be considered for within the school. Send the scores, but I'd make sure to let the recruiter know they are on their way. Otherwise he doesn't know to look for the change. You may also want to call the scholarship office to ask how/if a change in merit award is handled. The recruiter may not know all the ins and outs.
    My son is receiving merit aid and we were told to make sure to let them know of any increase in score so they could bump up his award.
