Mr. Elshal wrote:I have a phone call later today with Jason Dugas (I think). But I just got home from a 13hr red-eye flight and am way too exhausted to read through the whole thread. Would somebody be kind enough to fill me in on (A) whether a phone call is always a good thing, and (B) what happens in the phone call, like is it an interview or just a straight-up congrats?
prepare for it like a why uva interview
my went something like this
- why uva
- full ride
- please come to uva
i have faith it will be the same for you!
Ended up being very simple. Something along the lines of:
Him: "Is this Mr. Elshal? Hi, this is Jason Dugas from UVA. We've been really impressed by your education and experience...We'd like to accept you into the University of Virginia."
Him (acting all coy): "And we'd like to offer you a $45k per year scholarship."
Me: "excuse me, did you say per year?"
Him: "Yes, $45k per year."
Me: "ummmm okthanksbye."
And then I ran around my house screaming loudly.
Thanks for the help and advice.
