I don't know if I should solicit or wait. I feel like I am just being impatient and don't want to jump the gun, but I don't want them to run out of money and forget about me either. Thoughts?

Also what would you even say in an email? I feel like you can't just be like "Hey i'd like some money too plz."

so whats the TCR on the scholly response (just got mine as well) - go with the max?

ETA: Also, if there are other offers, though lower than what I would request from Georgetown, should I include them in the letter or would that give them incentive to just match those low offers?

Go with max reasonable I guess. Like I know I can't ask for a full ride when my GPA is 3.2.

I asked for 2 million dollars, does that count as "reasonable"?

along the same lines, are you guys naming an actual figure or being more vague/giving a range?

I gave an actual figure that, by using the data on LSN, I feel is reasonable for what I bring to the table. Georgetown is one of my top choices due to family in the area/fiancee and I wanting to end up in D.C., so I made sure to let them know that.

I wasn't invited to apply for a scholarship, and I submitted need access within the last two weeks. I'm cautiously optimistic that I will get a need-based offer given my age and finances. Should I wait for my need-based package to come and then solicit consideration for merit aid, or just go ahead and reach out now?

I think it's fair to solicit at this point.

Definitely solicit now. Need based and merit, coming from two different departments, have basically no bearing on each other. I sent in a note soliciting a few days ago and I got the email today.

Did anyone applying GLS get a response yet? I haven't heard anything from them since I submitted my application 2 weeks ago. Wondering how fast the spaces are filling up?

Can we talk about the Scholarship Intent to Register Form for a second?

It's due April 1, and you either have to agree to pay the deposit by May 1, or else waive the deposit but withdraw all acceptances/applications/WLs.

Is there a reason why you couldn't sign the SIR, but then withdraw on say, April 25, b/c you received a higher scholarship from another school? Would you still have to put down the deposit on May 1 if you've decided to go elsewhere?

Hey guys, how long did it take to get credentials on the admitted students site? I called the help desk and was able to get my Net ID over the phone, but they wouldn't give me my U ID which is necessary to be able to fill out the Yellow Application. Is the Yellow Application necessary for scholarship awards? I haven't received any email yet and idk if it's because I haven't filled that out yet (I filled out need access and Fafsa forever ago, and I should definitely be eligible for need-based aid). I was admitted a little over 2 weeks ago...is it too early to solicit/does the Yellow Application need to be completed first? haaaaalllpp
