Is this the only wave for the Levy or was this just for people who had been admitted by a certain date?

I remember reading in last year's thread that these are "re-offerable" so I'm sure that there is still hope for those who didn't get these in the first wave.

Yeah I have that, too. It's most likely for an email they sent on the same day. At least, that's what I've seen with other status checkers and no-subject mailings.

Are most of you guys/gals attending the Thurs night festivities for ASW? Or just fri/sat?

Also do you think the travel stipend would cover the cost of a cab ride? Live about 30 mins away and thinking about taking advantage of the travel stipend and getting a long cab ride home.

The Levy email says they're offered on a rolling basis and you have to accept by mid April if you want it, otherwise it goes away to be given to someone else.

wait so do we know if the tax returns are required to get an initial offer? I filled out the FAFSA/Need Access forms (as I assume most of you have), but don't have my parents' tax info yet. Will I not get an offer until that's in?

Historically you will get an offer even if you haven't yet submitted tax returns.

Nope, not yet. I emailed them last Tuesday, and they said that they planned to have offers out in the next "week or two."

Checking in. Heading to ASW in a few weeks. Anyone have beef on accommodations? Staying at Penn's reserved block of rooms vs staying with student vs going another route?
