I have no idea where this came from, but lol.

Waitlisted yesterday via email-- not surprised, but still a little disappointed. I'll be staying on the WL! Best of luck to everyone else still waiting to hear.

waitlisted. I would attend if they admit me. Is there a way to express this to the school?? I'm willing to pay sticker.

Send a LOCI!

Many on this forum will tell you BU at sticker is not a good idea though...

4th update today and in via phone call just now!
stats in profile.

I applied for the public interest scholarship but he didn't mention that on the phone. Does anyone know if scholarship info (public interest or otherwise) would typically be part of the phone call or if it comes by mail?

For what it's worth, I just received a denial mail letter for the public interest scholarship.

My scholarship offer came with my acceptance packet (they didn't mention money in the voicemail they left me). But others, I think, have reported receiving scholarship info after receiving their packet.
