Shit, if I'd have known I'd go back in review this early I'd have done an interview or.. anything really, since my initial waitlist.

Agreed, do you think a LOCI emailed this week would be of any help at this point. Or should I just wait it out and see if I make the cut?

I'm sure the people on the WL would gladly trade a handwritten letter for an offer.

Can you write me one? I need anonymous handwriting to feel accepted.

Good luck to all on the waitlist!

For negociating aid who do we send the email to? I'm thinking (from the website)

"For more specific information regarding the multiple steps in the educational loan application process, please consult the Financial Aid loan website. If you have additional questions not addressed by the web resources, please contact Cynthia Hintze, Senior Assistant Director of Financial Aid, at (540) 458-8032 or chintze@wlu.edu."

Or would it be Brett Twitty?

Contact the person who signed the financial aid letter. I can't remember which Dean it was, but that's who I e-mailed and she got back to me the same day with a higher offer. Good luck.

Thanks! Just sent it out, fingers crossed...

edit: just heard back, no increase "at this time" tried to leverage $28,000 from WUSTL vs their $5000

my scholly letter was sent 1/31 and I got it on Friday, 2/4. It was my understanding that you would receive a letter whether or not you were awarded scholly. Something along the lines of "even if we are unable to offer you scholarship money, you will be informed of this in the letter as well."

+1 I've gotten 3 other separate mailings from W&L (including one sent on 2/4). I have no idea what's up.

I'm part of the pre-1/20 waitlist pool (12/9), so I sent Director Twitty a LOCI email on Monday, and scheduled a phone interview for Thursday morning. Hopefully that's enough to convince them to accept me!

That happened to me as well. I applied on the 22nd of January and was accepted on the 27th, insanely fast. No handwritten note. I think you should be flattered that they didn't have to put that much time and effort into deciding whether or not you are an acceptable applicant.

Friday is when they're cutting the waitlist. Offering a few spots, denying others, and continual waitlist for the rest.
