So does anyone on TLS have his/her status checker indicate that the scholarship info has been mailed?

Also, have the Mordecai interviews happened yet?

Oh cool, I went back to page 98 and saw at least three people who had their scholarship decisions mailed. Weird that they received my form on 10/16 and I haven't gotten mine mailed yet. Whatever.

Hrm, that is strange. Let us know what happens (as I might be in the same position).

Since my hunch is that scholarship amounts (unlike admissions to a certain extent) seem based entirely on numbers, you and I should be receiving the exact same amount of $$ from places. You have 169, 3.91. I have 169, 3.92.

Nothing says that schools must assess apps in a cronological order. If a school wishes to assess their class by looking at established medians, that's fine. But yes, long waits are a bit annoying. Just not unprofessional


They promise decisions by April 1 or whatever but also say that apps will be reviewed (and by extension decisions will be made) on a rolling basis in order of completion.

I have a feeling most of us who have been waiting are headed to Priority Reserve or to the ding pile. I'm URM so who knows what they're doing with my application but if they made me wait 16+ weeks for a WL/ding I will write them a strongly worded email.

Seems weird that they havn't sent either of us a notification despite having early dates. Did you get a Mordecai invite? I didn't, but perhaps they changed their minds without telling me and we are both in the running.

Nope, no Mordecai invite for me.

Oh. Well. Now I'm just hoping for any ammount of money. Why would they skip us?

I have a scholarship mailing two days ago so I am expecting it anytime. I was complete and accepted about a month before you, though, so yours might be coming.

Does anyone know how to figure out how long mail takes to get from one place to another? I always try googling it but get useless responses lol

A Harvard acceptance, essentially. 173+, 3.85+ as a rule of thumb. If not that, then extremely strong softs (like iminlstruck) with something like a 171 / 4.0, 172 / 3.8.

Dude I was accepted on 9/14, so if you were accepted a month before me, you did something pretty special.

Also did you get a Mordecai, or have they not been announced?

My bad, I thought you just said you were accepted in October. But no, I didn't get a Mordecai. People with my numbers tend to get more in the 60-90K range from my research.

People are getting financial aid info already? Too bad I just withdrew. Bill Hoye is one of the nicest guys I have ever met (he gave me a hug when he visited Cal).

I'm interested in this as well... I've been pretty good about stalking this Duke thread and I haven't seen anything

I don't know of anyone that got Mordecais. Just searched LSN a few times and noticed that they went out.
