Did you somehow verify that with the registrar? I was told median is around a 3.15, but never got it confirmed.

Does anyone know if Villanova negotiates scholarships? I have a 3.46 and a 167 and got 22K per year. Nova is my first choice but I am curious as to whether I could get more $$$$?

Banning Sno-pocolypse this weekend, will be at the open house. However, not looking likely, only $20 k a year so Nova doesn't make financial sense...

I emailed admissions, they asked for a list of my other offers, and then they bumped up my scholarship the next day. :-)

How was the ASD? I walked through the lobby a few times, looked like everyone was having a good time.

Free booze was a huge plus. Also impressed by the concert pianist they had in the lobby.

Shouldn't you be asleep?

Free booze was nice. The alumni were incredibly nice and genuinely interested in our futures at Villanova.
