Hm...mine still says award access not available. It's just showing me loans.

It's very possible I just didn't qualify for any merit aid, considering I'm a pretty mediocre UVA candidate.

The options could be {0, 20K, 25K, 30K, 35K,…what do these non-Dillards go up to?}.

Can anyone point me toward a thread about requesting merit aid/other scholarships, or have any advice? Feel free to PM.

Any advice is appreciated, TYIA


How do you know you didn't get a scholarship? What does SIS say for you?

I have only loans listed, that covers the total COA (77k)--no grants or merit-based scholarships are listed.

+1. Disappointed to get no merit scholarship at all (only direct unsubsidized loans and federal direct graduate PLUS loans when i look in SIS).

That's what I get if I click on "Accept/Decline Awards".

If I click on "View financial aid" I get the same inquiry denied message others have reported.

Note sure what this means.

Would a late Need Access/FAFSA delay possible merit awards or only loans/need-based?

Mine said that until I got the email saying my award info was available in SIS. Once I got the email, I was able to check.

Also, just to confirm via a stupid question, the poll is for annual award amounts, correct?

I got an email from UVA today letting me know they had completed my initial review, but I'm confused. Is this merit aid? I literally just submitted my need aid form, so what happens now?

How do we know if the aid is for all three years? Or is that just standard?

Mine says "academic scholarship." Does that mean the award is merit-based?

My offer came in way lower than the numbers shown in cotiger's spreadsheet for my numbers. Are they just really into negotiation, or am I just putting too much stock into the LSN data?

So of you have not received an email at this point is it assumed there will be no merit aid?

+1 - does anyone have anecdotal evidence on negotiating with UVA? If they matched my Mich offer, I'd 80-90% be in CVille next year.
