They did offer me separate scholarship money though, so there's hope for us rejected folk!
Yea my hopes for Toll have died. Other money would be nice but that seems doubtful in my case.
Did they call you or did you call them?
I live abroad and have funky phone connections, so they emailed me asking me to call. They suggested the reason they were reaching out to me in particular is because I'm a Philly native and therefore they thought more money could sway me. I kinda didn't believe them on that, and figured anyone who they liked enough to offer Toll finalist stuff they'd stil want to come to Penn. They did say though that the aid committee (or whatever its called) is meeting later today, so maybe there's still time for them to call you?
Just out of curiosity, did you feel your interview for Toll went poorly?
