Did you just find out? Until I hear from you, I'm going to constantly check my spam folder.

Hahaha--I know that feeling.

I just got the e-mail about 10 minutes ago. It made it into my regular inbox as well.

I would, but I only have a 30k scholarship from George Washington. I doubt anyone would trade that for a 120k scholarship from George Washington... unless someone wants a rejection from Berkeley?

I agree. The box/booklet combo with the letter in it is really classy and smooth.

How long after getting the acceptance email and the mail box thing have people generally been getting their scholarship information? I submitted my FAFSA a bit late, only a week and a half ago right after I got my acceptance email.

Has anyone who applied part-time received a scholarship? I previously posted this question but no one could confirm the answer.

I did more digging and found Official ABA Data as of 2012, of 304 PT GW students 23 recieved grants. The median amount was $7,500.

Here is the link if anyone needs it. http://www.lsac.org/lsacresources/publi ... ba5246.pdf

Also, I applied late and my application is pending. Can anyone else who applied part-time tell me how long before they received a response?

I got it about 2 weeks later, and I have yet to submit FAFSA.

Does anyone know what the admissions event at the California Club is going to be like? Is it just a mingle and meet or will there be a presentation of some sort? I'm coming from work in Santa Monica, so will probably be running a little late.

So I went complete in mid-November, and my last status checker update was mid-January. Given the 6+ weeks of radio silence and the fact that even waitlisted folks are getting updates, would it be inadvisable to call the office to ask to see what's up? I know conventional wisdom is not to pester them unless needed, but my wait seems...unusual.

Forgive a late joiner to this forum, but I've been scanning and don't see any indicators other than decisions are usually release on Thursdays. Are there any other patterns I missed?

Thanks!

Not sure about patterns.. I was accepted on a Wednesday morning and LSN indicated that a group of other people were accepted at the same time.

double check the dress code. The Cal Club used to require coat and tie.

The Cal Club website says coat/tie required. But i emailed someone from the school and they told me that it was business casual--don't wear jeans, but a suit is not necessary.
