Accepted with full scholarship!!!!! I live in AZ so all of you that have visited...how is it?!!?!?! I need to make my decision and they're at the top of my list but unfortunately I don't have money to visit :( Do they do any type of travel reimbursing?

Yes. Especially if you are a scholarship recipient. However, they only give you the money once you matriculate in the fall... Tricky tricky. Maybe you can use a credit card for now?

Sorry to hear that :/
There's still a chance you could get in, though. A bunch of people that were waitlisted where already taken off the list and accepted.

Also, I wouldn't say it's in the middle of the ghetto.
I'd say it borders the ghetto. Actually, it's sandwiched between a commercial/industrial area and the ghetto.

Ok, true. Amazing how Garden City is that close to a shit town like Hempstead.

If you're heading towards Roosevelt Field there's this crazy transition from Hempstead into Garden City. I forget what street it is, but there's this one street that separates broken down bodegas and multi-million dollar homes.

To those worried about being waitlisted, don't withdraw yet. I will be withdrawing my acceptance and scholarship offer very soon.

Hey everyone, accepted today!!

Does scholarship info come in the acceptance e-mail? Or is me asking this question making it pretty obvious that I didn't get any money?!

Also if you go to your status checker, you should see scholarship letter listed under mailings

Sherlock is right. For me: the status checker noted I was accepted on March 7 then scholarship info was out March 9 but then I called the school on March 16 to let them know I had not received anything in the mail and admissions said they had mailed everything together the past Monday, March 12.

So, I got the two letters, both with different dates (March 7 & 9) in the same envelope.

GOOD LUCK! :)

My status checker said that my award letter was mailed on 3/21. I live in DE and I still haven't received it so I e-mailed Dean Chalmers asking if he could tell me about my award. He responded right away. Seeing as deposit deadlines are quickly approaching, if you haven't received your scholarship info yet, just e-mail or call them and they should give you an answer.

Hey,
Did you ask for an increase? If so, how and when did you do it? Also, when and how were you advised? Thanks.

Did they call and ask you if you were interested before this happened? I can't imagine them just switching you to FT without asking first.
