I didn't apply to Rutgers but I got some letter about applying in regards to a "special admit-outreach scholarship program for select students." It's got an application fee waiver to go along with it but still. Has anyone even heard of that before?
This is the third time that Rutgers has sent something like that during this cycle that I know of. I got e-mails in March and May with similar wording, and applied after the second one in May. I was accepted but still received the mailer thing you guys are talking about anyway. It appears that if Rutgers sent you this letter, then you have a good chance of being accepted.
Does anyone else know anything else about this program, like what the point of it is?
Just a hunch, but my guess is that acceptance for offers of enrollment was less than they had expected and they're looking to fill up the rest of the seats in a rush. I know they usually have classes around 220, and while not necessarily the entire class the 2014 Entering Class Facebook group only has about 125 people.
