Packet came in the mail today - full tuition! This definitely makes Minnesota a strong contender, but it's the only school I've heard from so far... ASW is in my future for sure!

So how does the status checker works? I've had an updated in review date as of 1/28

Not sure if it applies to all, but I had an in review date for 4 weeks, then another for about 3 weeks, then got an admit call, then the status checker changed to say welcome to class of 2017 the next day. (Or something like that.)

Scholarship offer arrived on Thursday - 90k over three years with a 2.0 stip.

I've got average numbers (164,3.4), so don't lost hope!

They straight up told me they don't negotiate during a tour. Theres a reason their scholarship offers are so high in comparison to others.

It also appears from last year's thread that they don't budge.

At least one person on this thread expressed intent to negotiate their scholarship this year. It will be interesting to hear if they are successful.

Are you a URM or have some other extenuating circumstances? I ask because with 165/3.7 they offered me $60k over three years. Are you in/out of state?

It was similarly quick for me, but I think there has been some variety that tends to correlate with one's numbers.

In today via phone call, though the status checker is not updated, so I can't speak for how reliable it is.
