I did not receive a scholarship email but emailed the hotline with a number of questions. My last one simply asked when scholarship information would become available, as I had received offers from other schools. I got a response which stated that they would pass along my information to the scholarship committee. Hope this helps.

Moxy, maybe ours just haven't come yet!

Perhaps it would be best not to get too much. Just ask B.I.G.

Holy crap that's big.


Hahahahaha I really like the direction this thread is headed :lol:

More money... more problems. Maybe you shouldn't want more money. Refer to the chart.

Is there any chance of me leveraging my 84k at WUSTL for even a little GTown money? 3.1/177, originally waitlisted FWIW.

Yeah, didn't realize how big it was until I posted it. Anyways, good luck getting some cash... I could use some, too.

Debating going to the March ASW.. Its down to Berk vs GULC (sans holds and WL's). Both would be paid for through the Army/VA in full plus costs of living plus pension, so money is irrelevant. I am stuck trying to determine whether I want to live near the epicenter for my desired trade, or a place where I can bike everywhere in every weather every day. Since they are so diametrically opposed, I feel compelled to give each my fullest consideraton. SF Bay though....

One of my friends last year got a full-ride to Texas & significant $$ to UCLA & Georgetown wouldn't give him anything. It can't hurt to try, but I really doubt they are going to view WUSTL as compelling leverage.

Yeah, an acquaintance of mine (who is now at Vanderbilt might I add) made mention to me a while back that GULC generally only negotiates scholarship offers of schools that are higher ranked than they are. And even then it can be a bit of a toss-up. Perhaps a result of being on the backside of the T14 and believing that only another T14 is truly comparable? Idk.

No. According to the admitted students website, there is no travel subsidy (budget constraints?)

I was hoping to crash on the floor with a current student... does Georgetown do that? If not, I'll probably crash with family friends in the area because I can barely afford a flight, much less a hotel!

I'm trying to go the weekend before. Looking through the stuff they suggest here =>http://och.georgetown.edu/shortterm/
Hope that helps, but I'm not sure if it will be too helpful.
