Just went UR2 today. Had my interview and didn't get a phone call. Status checker changed later in the day so I'm also not surprised.

I've been UR1 since mid October, is there anything I should do or just sit tight?

To those who've gotten scholarships already, first off congrats! I was wondering though, did you guys submit your fafsa before getting these scholarships or did they just give them to you?

I did not submit my Fasfa beforehand, it was just in my acceptance letter that arrived in the mail but I am going to submit my Fasfa once it's done.

Just got an interview request!! SO incredibly thrilled to see some movement! Is this generally a good sign? If anyone has any advice I'd really appreciate it :)

fafsa isn't necessary to receive a (merit) scholarship from uva

Starting to feel like I'm getting ghosted by UVA and Cornell and Michigan. It even took Duke an extra two days to get back to me via PT. wtf??

I also religiously check the forums and anxiously reference myself to others, but I have learned to calm down. It is December 12th. There is still 4 months to this cycle. Take it easy on yourself.

I am definitely being ghosted by UVA and Duke. Submitted fist day of apps, wrote why essays (apparently not very good ones), zilch :?

For those who had interviews: do you think who your interviewer is was an indication of where you stand? Like I know the Dean usually tells you that you’re in, so if it’s someone else, that means you are less of a shoe in?

Nah. The other interviewers can't admit you at the end of the call because the final decision still has to be run by the dean, but being assigned to someone else doesn't mean you have less of a chance. The dean just can't interview everyone.

I was accepted last week and my package is coming in the mail tomorrow. What are the chances, at this point in the cycle, that the package includes a nice scholarship? 171/3.49

Totally random looks like. Some people get it up front, some in January/Feb. You have a bit of a split numbers wise so somewhat unpredictable.

Side note, how do you know it's tomorrow? Also looking forward to the package, wasn't expecting it for a few weeks.

Regardless, do you think a scholarship is possible/negotiable even if it isn't tomorrow?

Got a notification from UPS.

Possible, sure yeah. A solid chunk of folks get something in their initial package. You are a splitter tho so unpredictable. Negotiable? Not yet. IIRC UVA doesn't start their merit scholarship process until after January for those who don't find out in their initial package. So I don't think they'd be open to negotiating just yet. I also recall last year folks were having trouble getting them to budge beyond initial offers.

I also got the UPS notification - mine is coming today, and while I'm busy at work, I'm not busy enough to wonder about it every 5-10 minutes. It seems with the customization of the UPS tracking website, there should now be a box you can check that says "Driver is authorized to open package and text recipient any details re: financial aid or lack thereof."

I'm confused, you both got UPS notifications for your admissions package?

If you have a my UPS account, you can set it to email you whenever a packages is sent to your address. By looking at the information associated to the package, you can figure out what it is and see when it will be delivered.

This makes sense. I am not a smart man.
