dizzynoise has an interesting situation, though. I guess the leadership scholars endowment is offered outside the acceptance stuff. At least, that's what I gathered from some lazy googling.

for a supposed acceptance rate of only 16.1%, it seems rather strange that no one on here is getting rejected...

They only starting sending out in late Dec and seems like a few small batches of acceptances. They prob start rejecting people soon. A number of schools haven't sent out dings yet; some haven't sent out anything.

For those who just got accepted, when did you go into review according to the status checker? Been in review since 1/5 and still in review. Thanks.

I believe I was in review starting 1/14, then had a decision made and mailed on 2/4. i'm not by any means above the median in anything (3.3 162), so it all seems pretty random.

for those accepted and planning on attending, we should get a facebook group going for the class of 2014.

The amount of the scholly is dependent on the committee, which does interviews in March. You could get up to a full ride. I assume they decide how much they might give you before you interview and the interview is the final opportunity to get to know you. They're short and include a handful of people. Every person invited to interview is given the opp to get a scholly so we're not competing against each other.

I am really considering Maryland. I would like to find a roommate for the fall. I am very friendly and outgoing. I like to play hard and study hard. I would love a roommate who likes dogs as I will be getting one this summer. PLEASE message me if you are interested. FYI I have been looking at 39 LEX apartments-the two bedrooms are super nice! :D

I called and asked. She said an email would come out soon. It is odd that it's not posted on the website.

I sent an email to the Director of Admissions about merit aid. Trying to leverage some big scholarships at peer schools. If they don't bite I'm withdrawing b/c it would be insane to go to Maryland at sticker.

If things keep going the way they are it'll be a choice between MSU with 75% or Maryland at sticker...

Got acceptance letter on Monday, then yesterday received larger packet with a lot more information -- but nothing about scholarships whatsoever. Being as I'm from Philly PA, Temple is sounding quite good right about now...

I've been "under review" since 12/14 with absolutely no movement whatsoever. Why wait this long for an auto ding? I don't get it.

The general consensus currently is if you don't get word of a scholarship in your acceptance mail, it's probably not coming


I disagree. Mine came in separate letters.

How much time was in between the acceptance letter and the scholly letter?
I received my admit packet today, but no scholly info.

Sucks that we have to wait so long to find out what kind of money we will be getting. I had every intention of picking a school by then.

Tryna wait us out so you dont have to come up off the cash, huh Maryland? :?

I have only received scholarship info from one school.

Accepted last week and received my admit package and scholarship invitation today.

Does anybody know how much money I could possibly get from going to the interview and how much money are they giving people who were invited to attend?
