Soledad en masa

College number two.

I received an email from the Roberston Scholars Program, a scholarship open only to those who applied to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or Duke University.

In the email, they explain that only 150 semi-finalists were chosen (I am one of them) to be interviewed for the scholarship, that I will be interviewed by phone in an upcoming weekend, that the scholarship is a full ride, including tuition, a laptop and summer funding for community service, research and travel in the United States and abroad; it is valued at over $150,000 over four years.

The third-to-last paragraph surprised me:

Your selection as a semi-finalist for the Robertson Scholars Program means, of course, that you have been accepted to Duke University, provided that you maintain high standards of academic performance and personal behavior.

Wow, I was accepted to Duke University.
