This makes it sound like it's 5 a year. But it's also from last year so who knows if they are able to maintain the funds for the same number of scholars.

Welp. It was a long shot, but it stings away. Now I just hold on to hope of just getting admitted. :(

Go it too.

If by some miracle I get it, I'll have to decide between BLOS and SLS need-aid. :/

I was leaning SLS, but now. hmmmm

Thoughts?

If it's AnnBryce good, I think BLOS may be worth it. I'll probably get close to max need due to parents being poor AF.

Plus I'm looking towards a government jerb or clerking.

Max need + interest in govt/clerking, I would definitely pick SLS.

If we didn't get a BLOS invite, did it seem from the email that no one else would be getting one?

Looks like it. They already gave us our interview dates. We're also able to start planning the logistics.

But who knows

ood's_bro seems right. Email makes it sound like these were the finalists chosen from the 100+ initial pool.

Did all the BLOS finalists get accepted way befor or did you learn of your acceptance along with the BLOS invite?

Hoping that scholarship offers come out tomorrow and the fact that I didn't submit FAFSA and CSS until Feb 6 even though I was admitted a month ago won't delay anything :(

Seems like those docs are only for need based and are completely separate, but it says the scholarship notifications can include grants which I thought were only based on need
