--> People who got schollies accepted/denied offers on April 16th
--> NU admissions analyzed how much money they had left
--> NU admissions offered packages to already accepted students who were trying to barter
--> NU admissions is waiting until the next deadline (April 30th for non-scholly offers) to start attacking the Hold list

Basically, we should see a surge of people getting in/out/WLed in early-ish May. Maybe May 10th-ish, I'm guessing (takes them a while to figure out who has declined and who has deposited).

next Friday will probably be a good day for a few people

This is dumb. NU is the last school that I need to hear from. Why is this taking so long? Lame.

This is actually pretty accurate.

My e-mail even said "It pains me to do this, but I must reject my scholarship offer. I will not be attending in the fall and I know there are many qualified candidates who have been placed on hold."

Translation: Jam has better numbers than me. Fucking let him in already.

Also Jam, on an unrelated note, you might send an LOCI to UVA at about one o'clock on Monday. Because that is approximately ten minutes after when I will inevitably turn down UVAs waitlist offer because they will laugh at me when I call and say I need them to match UTs 75K total cost of attendance.

Somebody posted in the "Class of 2015" thread that they got an email saying that all funds had been passed out already. :(

Hm that would depend on whether or not they'd give me money. If no money, then no. If some money then maybe.

If that's true I might as well withdraw right now. But I'll hold out hope and see for myself....
