UVA Scholarships

Postby kak5n » Mon Nov 15, 2010 5:03 pm

I was just accepted last week, but nothing was mentioned about scholarship money. Is there anything I can do at this point to get merit-based scholarships from the school? Or should I assume they will not offer me any money if they did not do so when I was accepted? UVA is my top choice, but if another school offers me money it will be a tough decision.

Congrats on getting into your top choice!!!
I received a merit-based scholarship along with my acceptance letter.
However, should be you be admitted into other schools in UVA's range (Mich, Penn) and they offer you money, you can definitely use that as a bargaining chip to try to get some help from UVA. Good luck!

Thanks! I was really excited- it was my first acceptance too! So he didn't mention any money during your phone call but you got the scholarship money with the letter? It seems like other people were informed of the scholarship money during the phone call. I am still waiting on my letter though.

I also got a scholarship offer with my phone call acceptance but if you check LSN from last year you'll find people who didn't get any $ until months after they were accepted.
