On the contrary I just got an email from the Dean saying she hoped to have a decision for me in a week or so :shock:

maybe they saw your profile/posts on here and knew it was you and that you were impatiently waiting :D

but seriously i wish i got an email :( i'd assume a personal email like that would be a good sign.

Depending on when you were accepted, there is a good chance they havent updated your page with your scholarship offer yet. With that said, looking at your numbers, it is safe to say you will be getting lots of money.

Checked my status yesterday before going to bed. My decision was also finalized this past friday. :shock: I went from CR1 since 1/29 to this. Haven't checked my status in a while tho. So don't know if it changed in between.

Same. Hate to be a downer, but I'm assuming I'm in the first batch of rejections.

Have people had success negotiating with USC on their scholarship? I've got a 95k offer fron Vandy, but only 60k from USC and I'm hoping they'll at least match.

i emailed them a week ago friday (3/15) and haven't heard anything. admittedly, i don't have a ton of leverage (trying to get them to match $90k at minnesota).

DF already! For anyone who's heard already, if final review is so short, has that been a good sign or a bad sign? :shock: nervous now

lol, I'm still complete around 1/23. Sometimes I forget I even applied here. It's not that I don't think it is a good school (it is), I'm just expecting to get dinged around May 3rd.

Pretty sure those of us who are DF and haven't received an email yet are rejections. The last batch of admits all received emails, and the dings waited a few extra days to get their letters in the mail...
