Not to be nitpicky, but I'm piggybacking on this to say that it does not look like the K-H announcement will come with the SLS acceptance. It's highly unlikely but possible to be a K-H finalist then 1) not be selected as a recipient and then 2) dinged, or 1) dinged then 2) be precluded from being a recipient. As evidence, the following is from the K-H website timeline (in the Application Requirements section):Winter 2018: we’ll select and notify the pioneer class of Knight-Hennessy Scholars in mid-February 2018. Departments also will contemporaneously notify applicants selected as Knight-Hennessy Scholars of admission to the graduate program.
My read (and only my read) is this: If you're a K-H finalist, you're not dinged. When they select their pioneer class (after immersion weekend), those within that class will get acceptances at the same time. If you're not a K-H recipient, that's not dispositive of whether or not you'll be in. Capiche?
Yup, I got that part. I was just wondering whether those who don't make K-H past December 15 would hear back earlier than other applicants since we submitted pretty early...but I suppose even they may not know that!
Well independent of all of the K-H craziness, last year's first acceptance went out in December and then January the two years before that so all bets are off in that regard.
