No luck yet on my end.
I sent an e-mail after the March 7th ASW and they said they'll add my info to my file and reconsider once more money opens up. Honestly, I wasn't going to visit Washu as it was a 7hr drive for me but I am SO glad I did. Ended up loving the school and the city was awesome. I think I would have really missed out if I hadn't gone. If you're on the fence, if they are giving you a travel stipend then update your playlist and go on a road trip to visit. Plus, what better way to show you're actually interested and they should invest more money into your scholarship than to visit? Good luck!
Yea I drove 12 hours... It was worth it for me.
