I actually emailed about something relating to merit aid, and their response was that merit scholarship decisions are made on a rolling basis, and they expect to have the bulk of their selections made in March. I get the feeling that not too many non-named merit aid decisions have gone out yet, so I wouldn't necessarily count yourself out. At least...that's the hope I'm clinging to...

Outside of name scholarships, they send out need/merit combined awards starting in March. That said, it's up for debate whether you should email them beforehand.


Eh, this is good to know. I didn't realize that merit came out alongside need as well, so I'll wait for that at least. Thanks!

Someone here posted that it's usually 2-3 weeks after UCR2 that decisions come and also that it's usually Thursdays or Fridays that they make phone calls. I'm hoping week 3 will be it for me (UCR2 1/22).

Weren't you going to go ahead and start negotiating with Penn? Have you emailed/called them yet? Very curious to see how it turns out as Penn is my top choice and we have other offers from the same schools if I recall.

I emailed Penn my UVA offer.
They just said it'll be added to my file. I don't think it can hurt to email before awards come out.

Just updated my status checker to waitlist, no email yet but may be stuck in spam... I was UCR2 at 1/15

slightly discouraging that they don't start reviewing WL candidates until mid-May.

Just waitlisted as well. It's a bummer because Penn was my absolute number one. I think I got my hopes up too high because applications are down, but my cycle has been sans miracles.

Anyone know if we should wait until closer to "mid-May" to send in a LOCI?

They said this last year too, but most (all maybe, I'm not totally sure) of the non-named merit scholarship offers came out the same week in early April. I'd expect the same this year.

Dinged via email. 3.75, 169, wrote a why Penn. A little bummed, knew it was a stretch though. Good luck to the rest of you!

:( Congrats on Cornell and UCLA so far though. I'm sure there's gonna be some WL movement.
