I have conditional acceptance as well because I applied while still completing my prerequisites. As long as I pass them and have my transcript in by such and such a date I am "officially" accepted.
I think it is crazy what schools require students to buy. I was getting worried myself because of a requirement to buy electronic versions of textbooks for use on an iPad (which I don't own). Thankfully I heard they decided to drop this idea (haven't had this confirmed, but I am praying hard!). I'd hate to have to buy an iPad, electronic versions of all
textbooks, and then, most likely, the hard copy versions as well. And I hate when you are required to buy through the school. I always buy online because even new on Amazon
is cheaper usually than used at the school's bookstore. OK, rant over.
I hope your friends and family will be extremely generous!
