Great, I was originally ED. It does seem like a lot of the ED turned RD people have yet to hear about money.

Agreed. Odd system, but I guess they figure we are more likely to attend? (Though I only went ED since it included full tuition. I'd think a lot of people who went ED are the same, meaning they need money to go.)

To confirm, I'm also still waiting for scholarship info after applying ED, deferred to RD, accepted in December.

I'm glad that this seems to be the trend. As I've said before, if they throw enough money my way, I'll send them the deposits as fast as I can.

Has anyone ED turned RD (non-URM) received their scholarship info?

I was ED and haven't received scholarship money either.

I went under review twice in Feb after receiving the "complete" email. After the second UR update, my status changed to complete. How exactly does BU's update sequence work/has anyone else experienced this sort of thing?

I never even got a status checker. I submitted in November. Figure they just didn't like me.

I got a response from my e-mail yesterday, basically said that most merit aid goes out with acceptances but sometimes people get money later. So basically just hang around and either one day money will show up or it won't.

Well damn, could they have made it any more pessimistic? I suppose the time for negotiations is near...

By the way, thanks again for e-mailing them!

Need Access is something you have to fill out to be eligible for Need Aid.

Well, I registered for the Miami admitted student reception. It's a week and a half before and I already feel the Miami driving stress...
