BRING ON YOUR "A" GAME

Dear TyRell,
With the approval of the School of Graduate Studies, the Accounting is pleased to inform you that your application has been approved and you have been accepted to begin graduate study at Utah State University. You are to be congratulated for your achievement.
Your acceptance details are as follows:
Starting Term: Fall 2010 Advisor: Richard Jenson
Department: Accounting Program: Accounting Degree: MAcc


That's right! USU here we come! If you haven't heard, it's been quite the stressful process. Back in the spring TyRell took the GMAT. You have to get a certain score to even be looked at by USU, and he missed it by 2 points. Ty had been told by the accounting advisor that he shouldn't even apply because they won't even look at you unless you get that test score right. However, I encouraged Ty to apply anyway because he had already graduated from USU with an above average GPA. His GPA was also well above that of the mini mun requirement. So he did. We have been waiting...and waiting all summer to hear from USU and it just hadn't happened. Last night we were talking and both really worried about where we were going to go. We knew it was decision time, but we just didn't want to make that decision without knowing his fate with USU. So today he called, and the gal told him that his acceptance letter had just been sent. He called me, I cried, but he still made me open his e-mail because he couldn't believe it! We are so excited to be going back to Logan. We would have LOVED to be closer to family at either one of the other schools we were considering and are so grateful for the family members supporting us, but USU's program is just right for TyRell. We are so blessed. We couldn't be more grateful right now! Utah State hey Aggies all the way!
