I thought your comment was harsh until I got my acceptance packet today. Major +1.



Fact. Nowhere near enough to get me to move back to PA.

Would anyone mind sharing their stats and subsequent scholarship offers? You say they're too low, but I don't know what that means! You can PM if you like. Thanks!

30K total over 3 years. Only positive was that you just had to stay in the top half of the class. You can check out my stats and the other offers I've gotten this year and last year in my profile.

In via email today. No mention of a scholarship offer, though. Is there hope for one in the packet?

I'm from out of state and I got $25k/year.

So I think maybe they told you wrong.

Hey guys, got a letter today with the Dean's Scholarship for $10,000/year. Certainly tempting, but in all likelihood still going to go to FSU or UF.

Ironically enough I may be in the same boat! I'm going ahead and withdrawing my PSU app tomorrow. Hopefully someone who has it as their top choice can get in.

You got waitlisted, and I got in? You also got into MSU with money, and I probably won't be getting any. Wow, funny how this game works. Sometimes it just makes no sense.

wait listed today via email, 156/3.73 in-state. I'm kind of fed up with Penn State, don't know how much of a fight I'll put up trying to get off the wait list :?

Sure is a strange world. Congrats! I didnt write a why psu essay, so they probably thought I wasnt interested that much. I have no regrets, though. It was going to take a nice offer for me to go. I allready told them to take me off the waitlist.
