It is my pleasure to offer you a Chancellor's Fellowship
and I freaked out! I never thought I was going to be award such a huge scholarship for my Master's Degree. The Chancellor's Fellowship pays all my tuition and fees for both years. When I applied for my degree, I knew I won't qualify for it since both parts of your GRE score had to be above the 70th percentile and my verbal score was a 69. Matt and I debated whether or not I score retake the GRE, and I didn't do it as I was not sure if my score would go up, plus it is $200 plus four hours of my time for a chance at a scholarship.
Then the details come. I have to keep at least a 3.7 GPA for my fellowship to be renewed each semester, plus I have to keep full time status. So, my brain went to work. Basically, I have to have all A's in my class since I would only be taking 9 hours. I think, well, this is what I need to keep my assistantship, so that shouldn't be too hard. Or is it?
I need to calm down like this and enjoy the blessings I have received going to this without being boastful as my husband says (maybe that is why I haven't blogged about it for a week). Apparently, there are people out there who think I can handle this (and the kids and the house and my schedule..........) and I should be thankful and not over analyze this (and stop thinking I shouldn't have gotten it which later I found out I really shouldn't have).
But, I went to email an acceptance the other day and this response made me smile:
Letters were signed yesterday. congrats!!!! (and it is about time you came back!!! :-) )
