I am trying to convince my friend to go with me, but he missed the date so I don't know if it'll be worth being pushy if he missed it. His numbers are good - autoadmit numbers, and he had a 90k scholarship offer.
The website says that deposits postmarked after the April 1st deadline are taken or not at the discretion of the Admission Committee. If he wants to try to secure his spot, he should probably send it soon or call them to see if they will accept it.
And how did he get a 90k scholarship offer when the highest award is around 60k total?
For the record, nobody got $90K. Nobody.
Last Friday we sent an email to everyone who missed the initial April 1 deadline informing them that their offer and scholarship have expired. We will accommodate admitted students if space remains in the class. Deposits are way up this year and I would absolutely say that scholarship funds are doubtful. We clearly indicated that scholarships would expire with the initial deposit deadline, if only folks would read.
If and when an applicant decides they'd like to join us this fall, they should contact me directly if they've missed their deposit deadline. When they do so, I'll assess their scholarship eligibility. Our scholarship budget is fully committed.
