I received an e-mail today notifying me that the admissions committee of the graduate school to which I've applied is recommending that I be admitted to their program in the fall! If the Dean of the Graduate School approves the committee's recommendation (which sounds very likely), I should get my official letter in about a week!
I'm also being considered for merit-based financial aid (i.e., scholarships). I'm supposed to hear more on that by Friday. I'm praying!!! :)
