Don't know if you saw my post earlier, but I received a $10,000 a year award in my gweb award history that posted either Friday night or Saturday morning. Still haven't received an email to that affect, so you might check there if you're on the end of your seat waiting.

I'm willing to bet they'll be rolling out scholarship notifications all week.

You sure that $10k isn't need-based? Also, if your willing to PM, I'd like to know your stats as well.

Will PM both of you who asked. The 10K is listed as a merit scholarship, not a grant. Of course it could always be the result of a typo.

Absolutely! I'd call the admissions office directly if I was in your shoes. If it's been more than a month since you last spoke I think it could do you nothing but good to show that you are enthusiastic about wanting to attend. Especially since they should be picking people off the waitlist in the next couple of weeks what with the seat deposits due next Monday.

Good luck!

Does anyone know where in the GW portal it has personal award information? I'm looking to see if they decided on my scholarship increase request but haven't emailed me yet.

Thank you...I'm in there, but I don't see any award information. Just personal info like emergency contact and a pay enrollment deposit. You know where to go from there?

Should be 3 tabs at the top. Click Financial Aid, then My Award Information, then Award by Aid Year. Select 2013-2014, and voila. Mine is empty by the way :cry:

Weird, I don't have that option.

I have View Addresses and Phones, Update Addresses and Phones, View Emergency Contacts, Update Emergency Contacts, View E-Mail Address(es), Update E-Mail Address(es), Change PIN, and Pay Enrollment Deposit.

Thanks anyways...

What has everyone heard about the wait list? Have they started accepting people and should we expect to see more waitlist activity soon.

I have not seen any waitlist activity from TLS peeps, but one would assume the wait-list would start seeing some action next week (after the april 15th [next monday] deposit deadline).

It's listed under the Financial heading, then Awards History, then you select the 2013-2014 year from a drop down menu. You should then be taken to any awards that may have been posted.

For those that are waitlisted:

have any of you considered retaking the LSAT in June. If you're still on the waitlist at that point it may push you over the edge...thoughts?

I'm considering it. I'm taking my first practice test this weekend to see where I'm at and then the studying begins.

Finally got a reconsideration response. Pretty underwhelemed with the amount, but we'll see how much they're willing to negotiate.
