I feel for you. I just got waitlisted by American today. I'm already on GW's waitlist! Oh, and Georgetown's waitlist (preferred waitlist, FWIW) too.

I believe some merit scholarships have come out already. The admitted students website says that you can expect your awards package by mid-march. I'm assuming their referring to any grants or last minute scholarships.

This is from an email I received late last week in response to my request for information about merit scholarships:

"We are currently considering all admitted students for merit based scholarships and you will be notified via email in the coming weeks if you are chosen to receive an award."

Do you mind sharing your approximate #s and/or the size of your award? Also, did you receive the earlier email asking what kind of scholarship you would need from GW?

I got an email letting me know that I would be considered for merit scholarships and inviting me to send additional documents. I sent a letter of interest and information on my scholarship offer from UCLA. 168/3.8. Scholarship is for 75K.

Also got the scholarship email today. 20k a year for three years and the email makes no mention of stipulations. Also, I didn't specify an amount in my response to the email. Just that GW was one of my top choices, why it was one of my top choices, and that the high CoL in DC would be a big factor in my choice to or not to attend.

Edit (in light of above post): Additionally, at the time I had no other comparable scholarships (only full at Cardozo and 15k at Fordham).

Thanks for sharing the scholarship info, guys! I'll admit, the lack of a scholly offer from GW has made me grumpy :(
