After a grueling application process, I have applied to every school and have heard back from all of them!
I am so, so fortunate to have offers from such wonderful schools. I am overwhelmed by my options; it is especially difficult since I fell pretty certain that I would enjoy each one! Considering all the variables that must be factored into my decision, I know that it will not come easily.
Here is my information about each school:
University of Portland (Safety)–Accepted
UP has rolling admissions but I got a priority application. I got my decision letter in early November. I was offered a scholarship. I applied to the honors program.
University of Oregon (Safety)–Accepted
I applied Early Action and heard back (on my student portal) in early November. I got a scholarship offer and was accepted into the honors college. Oregon isn’t on the Common App.
University of Washington (Safety)–Accepted
I applied Early Action and got my letter in the mail on March 18. They are not on the Common App. I applied to the honors program.
University of San Francisco (Safety)–Accepted
I applied Early Action and received my decision in an email on December 20. I received a scholarship offer. USF is on the Common App.
UC Santa Cruz (Safety)–Accepted
I received my decision online on March 15. The UC’s do not use the Common App. I applied to the honors program. I received an offer for a very small scholarship.
UC Davis (Target)–Accepted
I received this decision in an email on March 14.
Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (Target)–Accepted
I applied Regular Decision and got my decision on February 26.
Northeastern University (Target)–Accepted
I applied Early Action on the Common App. I got my decision online on December 17. I received a scholarship offer.
Brandeis University (Target)–Accepted
I applied Regular Decision and heard back online on March 13. I received a scholarship offer. Brandeis is on the Common App.
UC Berkeley (Reach)–Accepted
I heard back, online, on March 27.
Washington University (Reach)–Accepted
Even though WashU was my first choice, I did not apply Early Decision because I had not yet visited the campus. I also did not feel like I should limit my choices by binding myself to a single school. I received my decision online on March 10 (sparking a complete meltdown). It is on the Common App.
I received this rejection online on March 27.
