I don't. Mine had nothing it either. If you click the link for the admitted students page it says something on there about creating an online account to view awards, but you need a number from your official acceptance letter to create the account.


I think you can actually make the account with the email, I thought you needed to wait for the letter but I found my AU ID at the top of my email. I created an account though and still no info, so I'm gonna assume it's in the letter. Hopefully. Not that they're giving out much financial aid.

au is in the email...that's all you need. There was a delay in me getting my letter...so they forwarded me an email copy, and then also resent the actual letter. all you need is id to create account :) congrats to new admits

Congrats to all new admits.
By the way, IMHO no need to set up a my AU email. It doesn't she any financial aid info or does any good.

Should we expect more than 3 "application complete" status updates?

Got my second complete today and not too long afterwards, I got the acceptance email. Congrats to everyone else admitted today!

Did anyone receive any financial aid info with their acceptance? Is it hidden somewhere in the myAU portal? (Been looking around but can't find anything.)

Congrats! And nope I didn't get any financial aid info. I'm assuming it comes via snail mail.

Applied mid December. Went complete 1/2 and review 1/11. People with worst #s than me have been admitted already. Even those who applied later. Whatever....they are probably doing me a favor overlooking my app because I really want to leave DC. Good luck to those still waiting, I'm withdrawing.

lol i've been complete since 12/7. Will not be attending and should probably just withdraw but its been soo long i sort of want to just wait it out for a decision before I do. Not any rhyme or reason to their decision timetable so far as i can tell.

Just saw this thread. To the poster 2 above. American sits on people with numbers that are higher than their medians because they don't think they will actually attend. Classic yield protection (of which American is particularly fond) to drive up their ranking. So I wouldn't - and don't realize how people get emo about it- be offended they havent rendered a decision on your file.

They are random. I don't need the extra stress. I'm already waiting for 10 schools to reply. The waiting made me realize I don't want to attend American. My friend with below 25 #s and weaker softs heard in 2 weeks.

I would encourage you to withdraw for wholly separate reasons but being butthurt because admissions offended you isn't one of them.

True. I don't want to be in DC anymore. That's the real reason. But I also don't want to worry about another application without the intend to attend. I'm not offended, just over thinking everything.

I was accepted last week via e-mail and just received my acceptance letter via snail mail today... no financial aid/scholarship info. It basically just said the same thing that was sent in the e-mail.

People with better numbers then you were only receiving a one time 20k scholarship...

Yes "one-time" - not annually.

I think I'm ready to withdraw. No decision since I sent my app in on 9/25! YP if I have ever seen it.

And silly, too. Don't let me put words in your mouth, but wouldn't you think that this strategy eliminates any bit of interest you may have once had in American?

Absolutely. My first application was to American. I had visited the school during my time in DC, and if you look back, I started this thread. If they want to move up the rankings I feel like they need to give serious consideration to people who are a bit above their normal ranges, and throw a little money out there. Only makes sense, right? I just don't understand how blowing off qualified applicants is a winning strategy.

+1

Where the money at? High 160 applicants getting a one time scholarship of 20k?

I really hope their plan backfires; pathetic.
