Money from Maryland

I was just offered a Dean's Fellowship from Maryland. Full tuition AND fees for both years. Wow. :-)

My admissions decisions pretty much confirmed that I underestimated myself during this process. However, I am satisfied that I only applied to schools that I could envision myself at. Even if I had applied and was accepted I could not imagine staying in Boston and attending Harvard. It would be limiting my experience and outlook to an unnecessary degree, despite the outstanding education. Perhaps this level of awareness stood out in my essays and interviews and that was a main reason I was accepted into so many programs. Well, that and my GMAT score!
