I talked to their Dean of financial aid and it sounded like they aren't likely to mess with the stipulations. Anybody have a different experience? Which other schools did you use in the negotiation? (assuming you used some)

How long after going under review did you receive a decision?

I went into review around the beginning of December and had a decision the last day of January.

Do you mind sharing amt of scholly and if they had any stips on there?



They gave me 15,960 a year. It is like 2/3 tuition because I am in-state. I don't think there were any stips.
Idk about admitted students day lol I don't remember seeing anything about it


can you recheck your letter to see if there were any stips? I was also offered 2/3 tuition but out of state prices, and states that I will have to remain in the top 50 percent. also can you post your stats? I know that usually when you have higher stats they like to give you that "good academic standing" stipulation, but I could be wrong. I just want to know if fighting the stipulation is worth it, thanks!

Bump. In at Boyd, attending ASW this weekend. For those questioning stipends, they offer $500 to Northern Nevadans and $800 out of state. Anyone else going?

I'll be there. I just live right across the border in southern utah, so it will be a short drive for me for $800 against tuition.

Also attending. I'm coming from CA, but the drive's not bad - and worth the $800 if I decide to matriculate. :)

Does anyone know much about the UNLV admissions cycle? Should we even expect any updates until after the first seat deposit date (April 15th?). I went complete and under review on March 13th. Its a top choice for me so I'm a bit antsy here!

Also, I'm originally from LV and did some undergrad there so I'll be happy to answer any general questions! :-)

I believe seat deposit is the 7th, not the 15th.

I think it just said good standing. I left the packet home in Vegas so I cannot actually check. I am at 160/3.5 but they are very generous with in-state people because they really want them to stay in Nevada so idk how much this helps you.

I haven't heard a thing....I was later applying and submitted in early March (before the deadline!). However, I went Complete and In Review immediately. No word since. I have been told their deposit date is the 7th so I'd think movement would start after that....

I got the same response. In speaking with the Dean of Admissions, I was told that regional/local applicants generally get preferential treatment to those out of state applicants.
