Had to have someone to offset my full-tuition at 171/2.94 ;-)

When did you go under review? I am in-state and anxiously awaiting a decision, but my status checker still says in review this morning. Thanks!

I was complete 1/18 then first IR was 1/21 and the second was 2/7 and then a decision first thing this morning. I'm OOS and I'm shocked they'd even consider me, but am glad that they are! Hope you hear back soon with an acceptance! :D

Thanks for the info. My first IR was 2/7, so sounds like I just need to be patient. Good luck to you!

If your numbers in your profile are accurate, incorrect: Your index is 179.9029. My index is 177.67474. I win (at losing?) haha.

I'm still really pulling for you STL! I think we'd have fun together this fall :-) You've got a really solid index, I'm sure you'll get at least something.

Will you go to ASW if you get a scholarship? I think they reimburse up to $300 for all scholarship recipients that matriculate.

Yea I'd definitely go to ASW if I got a decent scholarship. I got the travel stipend email but yet no scholarship?
Iowa's prolly just messing with my head. I totally would meddle with little TLSers' minds if I were an adcomm.

Does ISIS show any useful information concerning financial aid or scholarship notification? I have apparently been granted resident status finally, that's exciting.

Did anyone go under review twice and get in? Or is that preliminary waitlist?

Thanks for the Index numbers chribru. My Index is 178.44964 and was given a 75% scholarship...think I should try negotiate for more or am I just getting greedy? :)

^^ It can't hurt to try and negotiate. Do you have a top third stipulation on the scholarship?

Figured so much. I'm not terribly concerned, even without any scholarship it would probably still be the cheapest offer. I have a house in Iowa City so my COL will be significantly cheaper.
