Hey guys, I'm at Pitt this summer and looking forward to a rigorous six weeks! Just how certain is it that we'll get the full scholarship amount at the completion of the program? CLEO hasn't been very clear about this and I was wondering if anyone knew for certain. It'll sure go a long way to help pay these outrageous loan amounts!

Im in at Pitt too, so hopefully I will see you there if I amable to come up with the rest of the deposit money before the deadline. But I was wondering the same thing on the scholarship info too, it seems to be on the hush hush. Infact almost everything about what is going on is on the hush hush lol, I called in the other to talk to miss Williams, and I was told she does not take any calls from people accepted unless she emailed you and told you personally to call her lol, you can only email. I guess too many people calling and bugging her. But yea, I felt like I called the CIA headquarters by accident lol. And the Guy who answers the phone sounds pretty serious on the phone lol, he wasnt rude to me like some one mentioned above the tho..oh cleo cleo..the fun never stops :)

Yeah, I feel ya on the deposit. It was very hard for me to come up with the money as well, but I keep hearing the benefits certainly outweigh the short-run sacrifice. I attended one of their summer events my junior year in undergrad and CLEO really is very supportive of its participants, so it gives me confidence in their summer institute. I see the merit in having some subtlety for a program this awesome. If anyone knows about my previous question, please PM me.

I applied for the program as well and will be at Pitt for the summer. Don't worry if you haven't heard yet... I think they will be notifying the another round soon.
And don't start filling out a new application for AIE. If you applied to the Summer Institute and are not offered a spot, CLEO will automatically offer you a spot in AIE. Check with them and let me know if I'm wrong. Good Luck!

Its been four months since I applied to CLEO and haven't heard a peep other than the application acknowledgment. I think I've officially stopped caring...

Yes, we are still waiting...Im not really consumed with the idea of knowing as much as I was about a month ago...either way I am okay...I just would hate to find out that I am in at a late date because of the expenses...But I spoke with the admissions counselor at one of the school's I am waiting on an acceptance from and she said I was nominated to CLEO, I just hope CLEO takes me.

The times for travel have been sent out for SIU. Apparently, Texas is well represented. Two from Baylor and two from Dallas, and I am from the Austin area. At least 5 out of 40 is not bad.

Got a negative today.

Is the Attitude one worth it?

Why not, right? "Every bit helps" mentality?

$250 travel stipend, [gross hotel] meals included, a two night stay and all the networking you can handle.... yes, I believe it's worth it.
