Odds are yes. It's worth applying and then before you sign-up, verify with someone from CLEO.

here's the link that provides the details.

sounds like if you are from a low-income family, a minority, or from an economically or otherwise disadvantaged background then it's guaranteed.

What kind of response? Was it an acceptance response or was it a letter verify that your information has been received?

If we get accepted, do they assign us the school or can we choose? They are kinda equal in terms of desirability, right? Anybody have comments on either school or location?

Hey araiza99 I noticed you got into Duke! Congrats, hoping for similar luck as I remember we have the same numbers from a past post.

Thanks. Kinda weird having the admissions cycle end so quickly for me. Wish you the best.

Desirability? Carbondale, IL VS. Pittsburgh, PA

Thats a tough one.

Carbondale is practically the Ozarks and the nearest decent-sized city is St.Louis, which is 100 miles away.

Yeah...It looks like it going to be at those two locations. I would perfer to be at U Pitts. I am not that picky - as long as I receive an acceptance letter, that's all that matters to me!

I applied to CLEO 2009. I received a letter in the mail about a month ago confirming they received my application. I went to Achieving Success in the Application Process (ASAP) in July 2008 and learned alot about the admissions/application process. I think they provide a great academic support network for URMs, not to mention the fellows stipend every year!

Did anyone else notice they haven't updated http://www.cleoscholars.org with dates yet!?

I've been told it's a rolling admissions process. I'm thinking we'll know by January/February.
