First off, a little bragging: Youngest Sister heard back from her schools of choice... All Acceptances! Harvard, Brown, NYU, Yale. Amazing!!! and... she got a FABULOUS, fabulous, FABULOUS financial aid package from Harvard. A year at Harvard will end up costing her less than she pays to go to her orchestra camp over the summer. Scholarships are our friends!
Buttons = bursting here!!
And you, know what? I have the less-good news, but I'm not going to spoil this post with it. We'll talk about it tomorrow.
Tonight, it's basking time: My sister got into Harvard. (And, since it won't spoil her moment here, I can reminisce a bit: 10 years ago, I got a big fancy package from that school as well. I didn't wind up going there, though: I wound up a few blocks over at a small liberal arts/totally education-focused school.)
My sister got into Brown. And NYU. And BU. And Harvard.
And that big holding-the-breath thing we've all been doing? Is soooo over!
