Has anybody who applied to BU's Public Interest Scholarship program heard back either way? I'm on pins and needles!

This might be outdated, but I interviewed on March 5th, 2013, and awarded the fellowship on April 2th. I did not accept.

Good to know, thanks! I wasn't aware that this particular scholarship required an interview. My understanding is that only a supplemental essay was needed. Where did you end up going?

I heard back recently and didn't get it. They offered me a regular merit offer in the same letter and asked if i wanted to remain on the waitlist for the PI scholly. Does anyone know any reason why i shouldn't remain on the waitlist? (e.g. what if i end up getting it but would rather take my regular merit offer? would that be possible?)
