Got super lowballed with my scholly... people with my stats are getting 2x/3x more. I wonder if its because I've been an admit for over 3 months and I still haven't visited, etc.

I've been an admit since mid-October, haven't visited or shown any significant interest and was offered a great scholarship for my numbers.

My status update is also gone. Can anyone confirm or repudiate whether this is a sign of scholly on the way? Would really like to find out how much they're offering before ASD...

Adding another data point for scholarships.

I got 72K. 4.0+/169. Letter was mailed 3/10. I didn't get a chance to check my mail last week until Fri, so not sure which day it arrived.

Any advice for what to wear Friday at ASW? They recommended that we dress in something comfortable, but I'm guessing people won't be in t-shirts and athletic shorts.

Btw, it's looking like rain on Friday. Don't forget your umbrellas/jackets.

That's unfortunate. I was looking forward to that beautiful Durham weather.

Is anyone else on the C/O 2017 FB group? There's a DBA event Thursday night, I was thinking about going. Looks like some other 0L's are as well... thoughts?

Awesome! I'd hate to be the only one.

Also, on a related note: I'm relatively local, so if anyone needs a ride at some point during ASW let me know. That being said I have finite seats/time, but PM me if you're interested and I'll try and help out.
