FWIW, I only got an email, direct from an associate dean and not from the form admissions email address, with no change on my status checker.

So from reading this thread, if I dont get a call/email today, I can pretty much assume I'm getting mailed a WL letter right?

ETA: Received waitlist letter today.

Awesome!
Just got an email about a scholarship award. They said that the amount will be stated in a letter that they sent to me via snail mail.

Anyone else receive anything like this?

Not yet, but I'm certainly waiting on this.

I also received this email today! The obsessive mail checking will officially start tomorrow. A decent amount of $ from Mason would be a welcome complication to my decision process.

Anyone familiar with how generous Mason has been in the past with scholarships?

If LSN is any guide, not very generous.

Do you mind sharing your numbers? Just curious as to whether I'll be competitive for a scholarship or not. GMU is in state for me so even a modest offer from them would make things interesting.

Any joint degree-ers out there? I'm still in undergrad but will be applying to Mason next year, most likely for the JD/MPP program.

if we do not get the email, does that mean we will not get a scholarship?

Admitted via email 4 hours ago! Apparently, I would've gotten a call, but I'm out of the country right now.

FWIW again, I didn't get a scholarship email yesterday but I did receive something about the Open House earlier in the week mentioning that scholarships would be released this week. So, I think it's still pretty up in the air.

I got the "Update on Mason Law Merit Scholarships" email today. It says "Yesterday we issued our first round of merit scholarships. Recipients were notified by email and by follow up letter." Since I got nothing from them yesterday, does that mean I didn't get any scholarship in the first round? That's a little disappointing...

LSN is showing not one single person with a scholarship listed for this cycle.

I noticed that too but there is someone further up in this thread who says he/she got an email they had a scholarship but that the exact amount would be sent via snail-mail. So it's possible no one has just gotten their letter yet and don't know how much they've gotten, just that they are getting a scholarship.

I got the email about how notifications were sent out but that if I didn't get one yet, that didn't mean I wasn't getting one in a later round. Since they said the second round wouldn't be sent out until mid to late March, though, I emailed Admissions right back and asked if they might make an expedited decision on my file since other schools have already offered me scholarships, and I mentioned some of the offers. I got a reply that they would see what they could do and were happy I'd written them to let them know.

Idk if anyone else wants to do that, too, but maybe that would prompt them to send out the second round a little sooner!

I received both the e-mail about scholarship info coming soon, and then the one that I had received a scholarship. I e-mailed admissions asking about the amount since I am currently out of the country and they replied explaining that although I should see the letter for stipulations about rank/GPA, it's $20k/year for me. I was admitted back in December. My numbers - 164/3.67. Good luck everyone else :)
