Hey guys, I just wanted to let you all know that I just got a call from the vice president of student somethings at Michigan Tech University in Houghton, and I won a full-ride scholarship! At first, about 350 kids applied for the scholarship, and 30 of them were selected for a half-scholarship, and we all were invited to visit the campus for about 3 days and do a few things like take an interview, write a journal, etc. Three of the 29 that showed up get the full ride, and we were going to get a call around January 1st, but he called early! His name was Les Cook, and I actually had dinner with him when I was up there. The scholarship is worth about $66,000, which covers room & board, tuition, books, and a $600 stipend over 4 years. I'm totally stoked, and when my mom heard the news she was so excited she started sobbing! Just wanted to let you guys know... I'm too excited to keep this all to myself!!
