I won a $1,000 scholarship today!
I was a semifinalist for the National Beta Club scholarship, and I won one of 221 in the nation (and only seven in Virginia)!
So, basically, this added to my other scholarship earnings and my personal savings means I have covered 46.33% of my tuition, room and board, supplies, and other costs for 2012-2013. (Or, if you like nominal data instead of percents, I have $27,500 of my $59,360. Because NYU is fucking expensive. But hey, I got a nice scholarship from CAS, so I can’t complain too much, I guess.)
