I take back what I said. USD does indeed have a fine eye for hidden talent (BIG envelope received today).

Whoo hoo!

Congrats! If they know what talent is, they will let me in. I was losing hope but we have similar numbers, so I am feeling a bit more optimistic now.

Giving up my spot. I went to USD undergrad, and hope someone enjoys the beautiful campus in my place!

Does anyone know if there is way to know if I am a strong candidate in USD? I am now on the wait list. Can I ask them directly via email? or would they tell you so if you are?

They will not give you this information. The best way to get off of a wait list is to:

Write an LOCI saying that you will attend if admitted

Visit and write an LOCI about it

Write LOCI's once every couple months

Promise to attend if admitted in an LOCI....

A bit redundant, but basically write an LOCI. It seems like the wait list is huggggeeeeeee this year. I am wait listed at USD and American. I write an LOCI to American once a month....

Tough decision, but withdrawing in the next couple of days. Should put 90k back in the pot for y'all! Good luck to everyone waiting.

Finally got my financial aid email :) 23K for the first year at least, but I haven't received my actual letter yet so I don't know if that's a recurring grant for each of the three years and what kind of stipulations are on it. Still, I'm pretty happy that I won't be paying full ride for USD.

You get either a scholarship or a grant, but not both. However, grants are a lot better because they are easier to renew.

I sent an email to financial aid requesting a need-based grant. Anyone had any success doing this?
