Sorry I haven't been posting much. It seems folks have found posts from earlier cycles to answer questions and that is a good approach.
I'll try to answer some questions I've seen posted recently and to give you an update of where we are in the cycle.
If you been admitted but had no scholarship update, it might be helpful to your situation if you sent along copies of your other offers not just the amounts. Because stipulations and other considerations will be considered along with the other offers, it will save us all time if you just submit what you want to submit along with copies of the actual offers. In the interest of full disclosure even if you submit offers that appear to be better financial offers, your scholarship may not be enhanced. We spend a great deal of time and energy putting together a thorough scholarship model which works for a high percentage of our applicants. We ask for other offers you find more compelling because we recognize that there are going to be circumstances outside the norm requiring us to make adjustments to our formulaic offers.
I encourage all admitted students to come to campus for an open house, Feb 14, Feb 28 or March 21. It is really the best way to learn what we're all about. If those dates don't work, come for a visit on your own. If you attend an open house or schedule a visit during the regular school year when classes are in session and complete a form, we'll discount your first deposit by $300 to help defray travel and enrollment costs.
For all applicants admitted before mid-January we sent out scholarship notifications on January 24. For some unknown reason and despite no history of problems, some email services decided that email in particular should go into spam folders. So some candidates who were awarded scholarships are not aware of those awards. We sent notification of this problem yesterday as soon as it became clear that a problem may exist. Currently we are re-sending emails for those applicants who told us they never received the award email. Also paper copies of the award letters are being mailed today as planned to notify applicants of their awards. Please read the entire award email/letter carefully as it contains a number of important topics, including renewal criteria (good standing) and reconsideration request processing.
Please feel free to PM me on any topic of concern. I can either post here or respond privately. Of course, I am also available through my Wake Forest email and phone numbers listed below.
