Not that I've heard. Last year it seemed like word came later in Feb (around the 20th if I recall correctly) for the first awards.


Still waiting here as well!

In!

Got the 'Decision Rendered; watch for email' update in the afternoon and unsuccessfully checked my email compulsively for hours. So I decided to go get drunk, and when I came home I thought to check my spam folder, and there it was! Stoked! ...and also drunk.

They respond to FinAid apps on a rolling basis so I guess it will depend on when you sent it. I was complete with all my FinAid materials in mid-January and still no word.

If you 'need' access to grad loans subsidized by the federal gubbamint, then it's not a flame. Need-based grants are an elaborate flame.

Elaborate in what sense?

Elaborate in the sense that they effectively don't exist outside HYS (but that doesn't stop people/schools from pretending they do!)

I can't remember when I went under review, but I think it was mid-December maybe. And I had two updates, I believe. 1/10 and 1/21, and then the update yesterday.

How long does it usually take to get the email after the status checker changes? I may have to use the whole "go out and get drunk and try to forget about it" strategy too.

It was a couple hours for me, I think... I definitely employed that strategy while waiting, haha. And then the e-mail appears, like magic!

Placed on priority reserve. Not super interested in Duke since I've heard from NYU though. How do PR people usually fare? Is this their way of trying to figure out how interested I am?

I'm guessing we'll only hear PT decisions today, aka those that they've guaranteed to get back to by today.

Think that is about right. Good luck at NYU if you end up there.

Could someone confirm this?

Those who are RD and borderline have no way to speculate when their decision will come nor do they have a way to speculate what their decision will be. Their decision will just be rendered at some point over the next several weeks.
