Couldn’t be happier – UPDATE

2 Down, 3 to Go!

So today, as I was taking the tram back home, I received this e-mail from one of the Universities I had applied to:

Dear Marcos,

Congratulations on your acceptance to Hamline University! This is just a quick note to give you the good news.

I just  got into another one of the schools I had applied to for my Junior year, Cheers!

Starting on Fall 2012 I will be transferring from Normandale Community College to a four year institution. Last month I received an e-mail from the University of St. Thomas saying that I had been accepted there as well. So yeah, I am feeling pretty good right now that I’ve got legit options.

Dear Marcos,

Congratulations!  I am pleased to offer you admission to the University of St. Thomas, beginning in the fall 2012 semester.

Thank you very very much Shelley and Virgil Petrie, for helping me apply 4 thousand miles away. I definitely couldn’t have done it without your help.

I am still waiting to hear from the University of Minnesota, Macalester College and Augsburg. Hopefully, I’ll carry on the good score. I don’t care much about where I end up going to school, it is just like going abroad, because I know it is not about where you are going, it is about where you went. And no matter where I go, it will be in the Twin Cities, the place I learned to love.


So, today when i woke up, I checked my inbox and it had another confirmation e-mail, I just got accepted to the University of Minnesota! And again, I couldn’t be happier.

Dear Marcos,

I am happy to let you know that you have now been admitted to the College of Liberal Arts for the upcoming Fall semester.

    Congratulations on getting accepted to those unis!
    Will keep tuned to more of your blog entries! I’ve always wanted to go to France!

  2. I grew up one state over in South Dakota. I loved the twin cities, but the weather (specifically the winters) just weren’t for me. Kudos to loving it even with the winters.

  31. Congrats! You must be an excellent student.

    If you go to Minnesota, you´ll be near my daughter and her husband who are studying in Madison, WI (miss them a lot).

    This April/May we are visiting them and I´ll probably go to Montevideo, MN to see Montevideo, Uruguay´s sister city.

    Good luck and best regards,

  34. Congratulations on all of these acceptances into Minnesota colleges.

    What is it about Minnesota, and the Twin Cities specifically, that so appeals to you?

    • Marcos C. says:

      I just love the atmosphere! Every time I go downtown, I can’t stop but stare at the big buildings, mesmerized!
      The twin cities are just so accepting and diverse, it just has a homey feel! I love it.

  36. mplsgossipgirl says:

    Congrats. I may be a bit biased but you should have applied to St. Johns. 🙂

    I wish to show my appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this type of setting. After researching throughout the world-wide-web and coming across tips that were not powerful, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive minus the solutions to the issues you have solved all through this site is a crucial case, and the ones that could have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn’t encountered your web site. Your personal understanding and kindness in touching the whole thing was tremendous. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. It’s possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this high quality and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to recommend your web blog to any individual who wants and needs support about this problem.
