Financial Aid Package

I received my first financial aid package in the mail yesterday. It was from Lewis & Clark, and the letter was dated March 1st. I love when "sometime in March" means "March 3" and not "March 29." Anyway, it's a good package, and pretty much what I expected.

I'm really pleased with the scholarship amount - it's going to make everything a lot easier, both during school and after graduation. Plus, you know, the love factor. You gotta heart the love.

It's going to be weird sitting on financial aid stuff. I usually like to have a one-day turnaround on forms like this. But I've decided not to move on anything until after all of my admitted students' events. It's only fair.

If you want to feel better about it, I've been sitting on my affirmative reply for six weeks, even though I'm 100% decided. (Um, humiliatingly, this is because even though I too have learned to heart the love, the love does not extend to the seat deposit, which I have to scrounge up.)
