I'm not posting a chance post, but I would like to know the "acceptance rate" for the Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship. I was having a conversation with my friends today at school and how I really want to go to boarding school (luckily I didn't get any strange looks like I did from my family a few years ago). They asked me about probablity, chances, money, scholarships, financial aid; many of which is on the eager minds of all of us as we await the 10th. I started telling them about the Caroline D Bradley Scholarship, and soon enough I have them dreaming about dorm rooms and campuses bigger then they could every imagine (sorry for lowering the acceptance rate future applicants,LOL). They then asked me how many got accepted for the scholarship, 15.. in the whole NATION!
My stomach is churning just thinking about how close all this seems to be. 15 is alot if only 20 kids apply, but I know that's not the case. How many kids are estimated to apply for the scholarship? What is the acceptance rate? How many kids are narrowed down for the finalists?
I'm in the eastern time zone, where many New Englanders are hard at work (I'm no state record holder). I want this more than ever and my mom said that she would think about letting me go... if money ended up not being a problem. It's so hard to think about applying for 2 VERY IMPORTANT pieces of my journey to boarding school. Even after I get passed the first round of applications, will I ever make it to my dream school?
I'm asking that someone ease my mind, some sort of number or piece of data that gives me at least a chance at making the dream the everyone on this board wants to come true.
