    does this give me any kind of bragging rights?

    I bet no one else cares but I basically just got an official letter declaring, "congratulations, you don't completely suck!" I got the Silas H. Rhodes Scholarship from SVA, which is the highest scholarship they offer. An admissions counselor said 8% of applicants get merit-based aid

    So thanks to all you beautiful people who post here, because I wouldn't know a damn thing about art without having found CA

    Congrats!
    I received that same scholarship in 1999.
    And yes, you can brag.

    Financially, it made a huge difference to me, as I'm sure you'll notice when you are paying off student loans for the next 20 years.

    Congratulations are in order. If it's not a full ride, we expect a "can I brag about this?" thread in fifteen years, when you've paid off those pesky student loans.

    Good luck in school!
