Signed, Sealed, Delivered...

Ok, so the first form of acceptance of the CBYX scholarship was sent last week and delivered by Tuesday, only to have them send me another one... so I've read over this one, signed it (had my parents sign it) and sent it in. Onto more news: AFS conference calls were this week (Wednesday and Thursday); it ended up being a lot less hectic than I thought it would end up being (totally didn't realize you could mute yourself on a phone call...). So stuff I found out from the call:

  • All AFS-CBYXers will meet in D.C. at the beginning of September (unfortunately a date was not given)
  • After a 3-day orientation in D.C. we will all fly to Germany where we will each go straight to our host families (except for a handful of students who's host towns don't have language classes, they will stay with temporary families in the same town and participate in a 4-week language camp)
  • We will have a mid-stay orientation in Berlin, but not all AFS-CBYXers will be there at the same time...
  • I actually have not been officially accepted ): (Germany must still review and accept my application)
  • I will find out my host family in anywhere from 4 weeks to 3 1/2 months!!
 And that's about all the interesting stuff (the rest was just rules and stuff about spending money and Internet access). So in the mean time I have sent in an application to renew my green card, which apparently takes like 3 months.... and then I have to apply for a visa. And the May 1st college deposit deadline is drawing closer, meaning I have less than a week to make up my mind about what school I'm going to!! This may not seem like a big deal, but I am extremely indecisive and this decision is seriously stressing me out. Well I better go make my pro/con list.
More to come.
