105k here. I feel like a slightly crazy person for actually typing it out, but, yeah, I don't think that's enough to budge from S or H (and the Y candle of hope still burns...)

(out of curiosity, of those who got these large but not full-ride awards, did you have an interview with Karla Vargas? She interviewed me regarding a 'large award' a week or two ago, and I'm wondering if I flubbed that and missed out on a Rubenstein. Ah well -- makes decisions less complicated!)

I'm freaking out a little bit cause this is the last piece of the puzzle.

Just got my scholarship offer of $45,000. I'm a little disappointed in it actually. Meh...

That seems a bit low for someone with your stats/profile. You have a right to be disappointed, especially considering that their Rubenstein money was expected to free up more money for others

Yeah, I mean you can't really get all "woe is me" with money offers at T6, but I was hoping for more than than to make it easier to turn down T20 full rides. This leaves me a little soured.

Does this mean that there is going to be no money left for those still UR? I just went UR on 2/9 and while I don't assume I would get in/even get a scholarship if I got in, I would be annoyed to know that there is nothing left for us :(

UC, making it rain! Were all of those offered money from the 01/10 admit group? Just want to see if I have been left in the cold or if 02/10 admits may have offers coming.

66k here. Considering that amounts to nearly half tuition, a tempting offer... If no HYS, then maybe hello C? :mrgreen:

I'm in the 01/10 group and have not yet received an offer. Hoping for one soon! :D

Dulc, I got the same offer--I'm actually really thrilled about it. Still waiting on H and S, although I think I'd take the money over Columbia at face value.

Where to then? H?


No idea.. Im honestly still a little shocked. I expected at least 6 figures. 40k/yr wouldve probably immediately ended my cycle for UChi. I will get basically an equivalent offer from H so I really dont have much a choice. I guess its down to darrow vs. H unless I get stanford or AnBryce then Im basically back to square 1.

I'm pretty sure you can apply for schollys to make up for that 10k a year they "stiffed" you for. I know of 2 right now that are 30k schollys (10k per year) for URMs. Don't give up hope on C just yet.

60K for all three years. It's okay. I'm not psyched but I'm not sobbing either. It's a little better than 'meh'.

Congrats. I'd PM you but can't. For comparative reasons, stats? (And feel free to PM me.)

Outside schollys. I just did a quick Google search for URM schollys and found some nice ones that I plan to apply for this weekend.
