I too would like to know this.

I'd call them and ask. Maybe you could attach the screenshot and say that you'll send an official letter when it arrives? (assuming one is otw)

Possibly. But in one case, I've lost the letter and in the other two, it's need-based grants (which I don't think I'll get a letter about).

Haha nooo, that's still a few weeks away :) but my scholarship deadline is in three weeks (ahhh!) so...by then? Visiting Penn, UVA, and Chicago for the next three weekends so I will somehow have to figure out where to go after all that. Gah.

What about you? Where are you leaning? :)

Nice, good choices. Almost at the end! :)

I am not leaning too much anywhere, things are still in play. I will probably withdraw form Duke and Michigan by next week though. Still hanging on the fantasy of my last 2 decisions, like many other romantic souls :lol:

I sent them a jpg file of one of mine and they said they added it to my file. they're quite prompt. You may want to figure it out though because they said it's on a rolling basis.

No, Mexican Post. I am going to the APALSA thing after dinner at the Continental, maybe some of you will stay in the city and come hang out?

They canceled the Continental thing. They sent an email saying instead they're doing dimsum on Saturday during lunchtime :D

Umm, I just received my scholarship e-mail again. It is the same as my original--wording and everything. Is this their way of saying they are rejecting my negotiation request (it makes no mention of my other offer, etc.)?
