11/20.


Thank you. I hope to hear by next week then.

Also, if we had gotten this email in January you would have still wait up to 7 weeks for a decision. At least now it will only take 3 weeks for everyone to get a decision.

Travel subsidy information also sent. Quite a hoop you have to jump through to get it (no 1 day layovers, must attend full event, must keep boarding passes and receipt, and check will be mailed sometime after the event). I will still try for it though, but I feel I will screw something up like I do with all the rebates I send off for.

:) Are you going to the FSU scholars thing? Sounds like a good excuse to visit Tally just in time for Potbelly's happy hour.

Does the status checker show when scholarship offers are mailed?

Still stuck on priority reserve.

Emailed Duke my LOCI, and received a response from a dean thanking me for my continued interest and saying it was helpful. Hopefully that will lead to good things! I would kill for a T14 acceptance, and Duke is amazing!!!

I'm assuming if they mail us a scholarship decision, that means we got something yeah? Duke told me I couldn't email my withdrawal, so I have been sitting on mailing it out, but now I guess I'll wait a few days just in case they give me 2,000,000/yr plus stipend or something.

Share stipend with me? If not I think your $6million will probably take away from me getting a scholarship, and I'll be sad.

No, it doesn't. When I spoke to them, they said that every single person gets a letter. I am pretty positive this is only if you submitted the scholarship form, but otherwise, everyone gets a letter even it is says $0.

Dang. That'd be fairly lame yet hilarious if they send out a bunch of letters with $0 on them.

Hearing that surely upped the suspense for the mailing.

Haha, sorry guys. That's just what they told me.

People whose letters have been mailed: do you mind posting the date that your scholarship form is listed as received? Mine was received 12/14, and the e-mail said they were going in the order applications were received...
