Very happy that I happened to check this thread....apparently GW had sent me an email a few weeks ago with a $45K scholly but it had been stuck in my SPAM folder. So as an fyi for everyone else, check those SPAM folders!!!

Got my admit packet today (pretty sweet looking) and tried to log into the admitted student portal but it's giving me a weird error.

just received a $90,000 scholarship email.

gw seems to be on top of addmissions. I can't believe it's taking other schools months to even get to complete....looking at you Cornell and BC...

Accepted last week, 60K total scholly. Was hoping for more, but that might be acceptable. GWU still worth it with 60K off sticker?

That's a personal choice, but I'd be scared.

+1. DC's really expensive too. So it'll be paying the rest of the tuition plus the high COL in DC.

I already live in the DC area, but yeah, it's a lot. Guess I'll have to think on it.

I know, it just seems like other people are hearing back within a week/few weeks.

Yeah, try not to let it get to you. I'm still waiting on schools that I applied to in October while others are hearing back in less than a week. It's just the nature of the beast.

At what point is it acceptable to call re: merit scholarships? Accepted 12/17, numbers above medians. Like I've said before, not expecting 120k, but surely I can get something. Wouldn't be too concerned if people who were accepted late January weren't getting their scholly info already.

Got a few emails from the school today for different programs I expressed interest in. The one from the Constitutional Law program had "Constitution" spelled wrong.

Hey, they misspelled "12-16 weeks" wrong on my status checker. They wrote "8-12 weeks."

Sincerely,

A still-waiting since early-November applicant
