I got into Graduate School!!!!!! :clap::clap::clap:

*Finally* I heard back from someone! There are still 5 other schools I'm waiting to hear back from, but this school was my second choice. So I at least know I'm going!!! :smiley20:

I will be getting my M.S. in Marine Biology! :smiley27:

Good for you. I wound up going to my second choice school for grad school--one of my professor/references had a sick child and never sent my reference in--I got a letter back from the 1st choice school saying that my file wasn't complete by the deadline so I wouldn't be considered but I was free to try again next year. I called the second choice school and they went ahead and looked at my application minus that reference and offered me a research assistantship. I think it was God's way of getting me where I needed to be for the right growth in other areas of my life.
It is exciting though to know that you have been accpeted-good strokes for the ego. Good luck in grad school.

Congrats! Marine biology will be a great field. I wish I would have done something fun, instead I got sucked in to the information world about 20+ years ago. Maybe I will go back... Nah, now I just want to dive in my free time.

Congratulations! Maybe you will receive good news from your number 1 choice soon!

Yahoo!! Congratulations!! :D :D :D

I enjoyed my Masters program FAR more than my Bachelors since every class was relevant to what I wanted to do. I hope you find the same.

I applied to seven schools - had interviews at four and got accepted into one. But that is all it takes is one. Congrats!!

Congratulations! I am not quite sure what a marine biologist does but it sure sounds like something interesting with the opportunity to dive.

Great news Becky, what were your choices? Will you start in the spring?

I'm sure you will do well.

Great news Becky, what were your choices? Will you start in the spring?

I'm sure you will do well.
I will start at the end of January 2008...so its coming up! :)
I applied to 6 schools in California: Cal State: Fullerton, Long Beach, Northridge, Monterey Bay, East Bay, and Cal Poly Pomona. Long Beach would be my first choice, as they have an awesome program. Monterey Bay would be another great choice too though. Who knows, maybe if I get any more acceptances I'll have more choices :D I keep looking out the window for the mail man....:smiley36:

I'm glad you are so excited about your education. We need more students with your enthusiasm. Good luck and keep us posted.

right now I don't even want to think about college my kids are twins which means they both go to college the same year...They are both A students so were keeping our fingers crossed for scholarships. Do any colleges give scholarships based on diving credentials?
