How are you guys feeling? Is anyone going to speak with them about competing offers/the possibility of a better scholarship? Also, is anyone clear if this is a merit based scholarship and there may still be grant or need based scholarships coming, or is this the whole package? Thanks for any help!
Well, 12k is better than what most UW students will get, sadly.
When did you submit your scholarship application? Did you contact the office of financial aid directly at any point?
I'm in the unenviable position of having UW as my top choice while also having not received a scholarship there yet, though I did submit my scholarship application early. I've been accepted at five schools ranked higher than UW, all with very competitive scholarships.
I just want to live in Seattle. Why is this school so broke?
