Good luck! Hope mine came/comes today. I can't see how it wouldn't if it was really mailed 2/22 like my status checker says. I'm leaving work early to go check.

The suspense would be killing me. I left town around the time my letter was supposed to arrive, and everyday I called my roommate. It ended up coming my first day back, but I totally would have made my roommate open it.

Agreed- go right to page 2 with the scholly info. 20k per year for me and I was thrilled. Not much for stips if I remember- just good standing?? Or 2.5? Getting them mixed up.

I would estimate 2.5 would be about bottom 2%.

Median is typically about 3.25
The 25th is typcially a 3.0

Yeah, but a <2.5 requires a hefty amount of C's. How common are C's? Is it possible that no students would get that low in any given year?

Yeah thats possible.

In my section, there were 0-3 C-/C/C+ total in each class of about 50.

Just got home and found my packet. Full tuition scholly! Idk if that's the norm for people with my numbers, but I am very taken aback. I also really liked the admit package. All relevant and helpful documents.

FTR it's nearly impossible to lose a scholarship. It hasn't happened in a few years, at least.

Congrats to the new admits!
