A long time ago, I got $100 as a travel subsidy from NYC for ASW.

What's the word on whether they contact your employer? I just got a new job and haven't mentioned I'll be leaving in the fall, but they ask for your pay rate, etc. here.

How long did it take people to receive the acceptance email after they received a phone call accepting them? I was told I would get an email within 24 hours, but I didn't so now I'm kind of worried lol :/

I asked this question a few days ago and someone replied that you will hear back re: scholarships once you fill out the scholarship application form (in the digital acceptance packet) and turn it in. Hope that helps!

is that the thing on college board?

edit I found the form. do I just fax it in?


I sent it as a PDF to the email at the top of the form (I think it is something like law.financialaid@cornell.edu). Sent it yesterday; still waiting to hear back. Some others have said that it normally takes a few days to hear back with scholarship info.

A few hours usually. You should get a decision today.

How much of the reserve list do you think is actually making the effort to do this, and what % of those who do interview do you think will end up being accepted? Is it more about the displayed effort or about the substantive interview performance (I realize both come into play)?


Planing to go to NYC for interview.
Great questions. I think it's a combination of interest and interview performance. I really think if you make the effort to go to NYC or DC and you nail the interview, you are in. Let's hope so.


I hope you're right, and you should be right. I'm headed to NYC, as well. I wish they would have confirmed my chosen time and date before the weekend, though..


I will be interviewing in NY next week. For those who went through this already, what questions were asked? Anything we should know before heading in? Thanks
