I remember getting an acceptance package last year. I was also accepted in December, but I couldn't tell you when the package came.

I received mine on Monday! It’s a black folder with info on wake forest and an acceptance letter. Still no info on scholarships though.

I was accepted on 12/21 and just received my acceptance package yesterday. If you check your online status checker it should show you when/if your acceptance package has been mailed.

Thanks! For some reason, I was accepted 12/14, and they just mailed my acceptance package on 1/12. Weird.

How long between when your application went "in queue for review" and when you received a decision?

In! Under review 1/1 and in as of an hour or so ago. I'm super excited! So far I've only been admitted with scholarships to Michigan State, Duquesne, Chicago-Kent, Penn State, and Cardozo. Should I even send those scholarship offers to Wake Forest even though they're not similarly ranked schools? I doubt I'll get an acceptance with a scholarship from anyone closer ranked to Wake Forest before the Saturday 1/20 deadline :?

Absolutely send it. I negotiated up my scholarship substantially last cycle with offers from all over.

Thank you so much!! So all of the scholarship notifications I've received have just been emails from the schools. Should I just screenshot them and send them to Wake Forest? Or how did you send them?

Not sure if it is any different this year, but last year when I got my scholarship info from wake it came with a form that you filled out and sent back to them where you listed out your other offers. I sent the form back via email and just screenshotted the other scholarship emails.

Yeah I haven't received my scholarship info from Wake yet, the acceptance email says I'll receive it by February 5th. The email says that if I have offers from other schools I'd like them to consider before they determine my scholarship award I can "send a copy directly to them" at their email by Saturday 1/20. I'm just gonna screenshot the emails I've gotten from the other schools and send that since I haven't even received my acceptance packages in the mail yet. Thank you for the help!

Yeah, I just saved my emails as PDFs and sent it in to them that way.

I'll do that as well. Thank you! Hopefully we get some nice scholarship offers!

In via email today!

Would Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona make sense as standing offers to negotiate with? That's all I've got in terms of similarly ranked schools thus far.

Has anyone heard anything about scholarship information yet? I know it said that we would hear by February 5th on the acceptance email.

At this time last year, some applicants noted receiving their scholarship offers. Maybe we should expect them this afternoon?

What kind of offers has everyone been submitting for consideration. I have only been accepted to one higher-ranked school, with full-tuition. However, given its regional nature, I doubt Wake would consider their offer as much as they would an offer from UNC. Unfortunately, I have yet to hear back from UNC.

People are saying on reddit that their status checkers have been updated with scholarship info. Mine hasn't been updated yet so hopefully our status checkers will be updated later today!

I have a new section that says "Scholarship" and amount says $38,000. Do we think that means per year?

Edit: according to reddit, its per year

I received $41K annually.

Beggars can't be choosers, but I wonder how willing they would be to bump that up to full tuition by ~$3K?

Does anyone know if Wake is willing to further negotiate?

I'm not positive, but I'd assume so since in the acceptance email they asked for you to send other offers you had? It's worth a try. Let us know how it goes if you do!

Thanks! Did it come in at the same time as the acceptance email or some time in between?
