Already been offered? Interesting. I figured we'd see some sign of it here or on LSN.

This makes me worried....not a single person on LSN has reported money from CU.

Because there is some concern and interest, this is verbatim from the email.

The first round of scholarships has been offered. It is done on a truly rolling basis with some applicants receiving an award offer with their offer of admission and others receiving award offers as the incoming class begins to take shape.

In other news it's another GORGEOUS day here in Colorado! It's been a great week for weather.

Am I missing something? Why do y'all think this doesn't bode well for y'all?

It's highly doubtful that none of the early admits are reporting their money offers (meaning they didn't get to people yet)... RIght? Right???

Exactly, they probably just put them in the mail this week or even today. Offered does not mean they have been received/delivered yet.

The e-mail does seem contradictory to the acceptance letters that were sent out, which explicitly stated that scholly offers wouldn't start coming out till late Jan/early Feb. It would be difficult for the process to be "truly rolling," since a number of people were accepted prior to late January...I wish this process (at all schools) was more transparent :(

Were you a wait list or was your file held?

Those are two different things. If you were a wait list, then it would be extremely odd to be off of it since they haven't even closed their admissions to this year's applicants. However, if your file was held for 12 days then it means the law school was reviewing how many people they have admitted or not admitted this cycle and needed to wait so they could plug in numbers to calculate their expected medians for this year.

At this point in the cycle a lot of places are looking to boost their medians so they hold a lot of applicants until they figure those numbers out.


Yes, I know there is a difference. I was waitlisted. I got a letter in the mail saying I was waitlisted and if I wanted to ride/not ride the waitlist, to indicate my preference on this little card they sent with the letter. I never sent it back because I was planning on withdrawing. The email I got today said that my acceptance letter was sent on Friday, the 11th, a week after my placement on the waitlist.

So weird! Maybe you should personally talk to the admissions office if you're still interested in CU.

Meh. I was going to. I will if the gf gets into CSU and nowhere else... But at this point, I'm jaded, and will just walk away with my < $40k in cost of living debt to go to Iowa.

Just heard back about my travel stipend request. She said that they don't have the funds at this time, but if they become available she will be sure to let me know.

Any native coloradians able to answer this:

is it cheaper to purchase ski / snowboard gear online or through local shops? Also, when is the best time to buy, mid season, summer, fall, spring etc?
