Check your spam folder.
Did, didn't have anything. I emailed them and was told to submit my deposit early because they might have leftover money after scholarship awards are given out by April 1st. So apparently that means I got $0, which is disappointing.
That's weird. UGA has been stingier than other schools based on what I've heard but it seems like most people are getting at least a little bit of money. I'm thinking that it may be related to your applying later in the cycle? They just sent out a "scholarship commitment" email (essentially asking us all whether we're accepting our offer, still considering it, or turning it down) so it sounds like they're trying to gauge how many students with $$$ will actually take the money before they give out any more.
