oh it takes forever, don't worry about it. Scholly decisions and financial aid are separate departments, so they have to communicate about updating it.

If you want myaccess to be updated quicker, you can forward them the scholly award email (this tip comes directly from financial aid)

Its been 10 days for me which isn't that long grand scheme of all this but the 1st is next week and hearing other people get it more immediately is making me impatient.

Hi there - did anyone ITT successfully negotiate scholarship amounts with GT? If so, how'd you do it/how big of a bump did you get?

ETA: In between writing this and posting this it appears someone else asked exactly the same question. Please ignore.

edit- so I was just turned down after only 2 days of waiting, and was told GULC is out of scholarship $ for the time being. So it will be interesting to see if anybody gets increases between now and May 1st

yeah I think as long as the deposit deadline hasn't already passed, you're not lying. you just haven't decided whether or not to deposit yet.

Checking in. Gonna commit within the next few days. Very stoked, to say the least. How is there no Class of 2018 page on FB?

Not fully committed, because I'm on some waitlists, but GULC is where I am planning to attend.

Got an email about inquiry of my future plan. Did any one get it too? I am on the Alternate list of scholarship and really don't want to go there at sticker. I hope they can grant me an extension. :(

I think it's fair to say that you would love to attend GULC, but that you have other strong offers and won't be able to afford attending without a scholarship. If it's your first choice, definitely mention that.

Also an alternate who received the same email. Responded this morning saying exactly what Gray suggested.

I imagine they are seeing if we actually would attend if given money, or just want the scholarship to keep our options open.
