I interviewed too, with Sam Kwak, and he told me to expect scholarship information in 7-10 days. Two weeks passed and he never got back to me, so I emailed him to ask, and he finally responded a couple days later with a scholarship. FWIW, it was the highest amount in the range that they told me I was interviewing for, but still less than the offers from higher ranked schools that I have, which they knew about because Sam asked me to send them to him. Also, people with similar or lower numbers than mine were offered the same amount without having to interview, so I really don't know what the point of the interview was. Tried to negotiate and was swiftly shut down.
ETA: Wait sorry, I think the initial email said I was chosen to interview for a scholarship award that ranged from 30k-75k, and they gave me 90. Still though, it seems like only a handful of people were chosen to interview, and they didn't get any more (sometimes even less) money than the people who weren't. Sort of off-putting. Glad I didn't drive all the way up to Chicago for the interview like they requested in the email.
