What does it mean when your Current Status Date is pushed back? Bad news, right?
In Review, date is today

I'm still waiting on my scholarship info (if any). I'm about to give up and assume I wasn't offered any $$. I was accepted on 12/3.

Damn damn damn. I was really hoping to know everything before Christmas, since all my apps were in 11.2. Grrrr.

Same, do you think they're just waiting until they receive a copy of our official transcripts before sending out that information?

Nah. They just want your official transcript before you start classes. No UG Seniors would be able to provide transcripts yet...

Ah, that's right... I'm really just trying to find any excuse to believe that they're stalling rather than giving no $ whatsoever. :(

Status updated from "In Review as of 3 Dec" to "In Review as of 17 Dec." That's probably not the best sign....

I'm still hoping it will come next week. It looks like only 3 scholarships have come out so far, according to LSN.

I don't think you guys should be too worried, it says all applicants are considered within two weeks and receive notification via postal mail. I imagine it realistically takes somewhere over two weeks to actually receive the info.

Did anyone else's "personalized" note make little sense? I thought that was such a nice touch to add to an acceptance letter, but the blurb they wrote on mine didn't really apply to me...

Hmm, wonder if they made a mistake...I would love to get my admit package tomorrow, before leaving for vacation for a couple weeks. My neighbor is going to check my mail while I'm gone, and I have a feeling she won't be able to resist opening it all, and I would like to open it!

I could barely read mine, I think it just relates to whatever you put down as your legal interests on your application. Seriously though, chickenscratch to the max.

I called admissions 8 days ago and asked to speak to someone in fin. aid. I asked about ETA for scholarship info and they said it could be as late as April. I told the woman I had heard about a 7-10 day turnaround time and asked her to confirm/deny. She said she was unaware of any hard and fast rule. She told me I could request to have my fin. aid decision made early. I sent an email to admissions asking them to expedite my decision. They sent me an email stating that it would be completed in 7-10 business days. I'm still waiting.

Thought this might help.

My admit email said that financial aid info would be mailed within 2 weeks of admission. Is this not the case?
