I just wish the entire merit aid process was more transparent especially because I think it would be mutually beneficial to both applicants and the school.

It would be a lot better if there was a specific timetable to merit aid consideration so if I am sure that I missed the scholarship boat I can withdraw and move onto other plans and GULC can have another open spot.
I wholeheartedly agree with this. Although I am still considering Georgetown without any inclination of merit aid the lack of transparency in the process is very unsettling. If I did not follow this forum I would have no idea whether merit aid was still on the table. GULC should aspire to have an informative application process and how merit aid is distributed is an important part of that.
On a secondary note, has anyone heard about PILS scholarships? Last year results did not come out until late March.
+1. GULC is only an option for me if they have some $$ to go with it. Wish they were more transparent.
