Withdraw then :P

No way. She deserves to have scholly leverage if she can get it.


Yes, and not to mention I paid a nonrefundable $70 fee for this decision. I at least want to know what it is before withdrawing :wink:

Well if you paid for it then by all means you are owed a decision!

sh - It's going be really tough for me to wait since I'm only a few hours away. I feel like a Wheel of Fortune contestant, watching the wheel spinning and mindlessly chanting, "Bigmoneybigmoneybigmoney!"

I love to see the looks on the "big money big money" people's faces when they hit bankrupt or lose a turn.

Everyone else with my scholarship app received date got their's mailed in the last round, and mine was sent in this round, so you don't necessarily need to be worried (though I was freaking out til yesterday haha).

Also how long did it take people's letters to get to them??

2 days everywhere else... is that 2 days from the "Scholarship decision mailed" notification or 2 days from the date of the most recent status date?

My "Scholarship decision mailed" was 2/22 but then my status checker updated to 2/23 for some reason. I would love to get the offer today if the 2 days thing holds true from 2/22.

Do you live east or west of the Mississippi? If you're out west, I doubt it would arrive only 2 days after the date it was sent.

Philadelphia. I'd imagine i'm in that 2-day window, but when does the 2-day clock begin? 2/22 "Scholarship decision mailed"? or 2/23 status checker update?

2/22 scholarship decision mailed. They probably only update their system once a day (at midnight), so even though your letter was mailed on 2/22, the status checker app didn't receive the update until 2/23.

I thought my LSN box was linked in my profile but it wasn't. It is now. Don't ask why the different names, but that is me. To answer your question (which disappeared?), Penn is a top choice for me for various reasons. I'm open to a lot, though, so money will matter.

Is this really the case? Don't planes fly overnight to deliver mail? It's not like they have to drive it across the country or something. At least that's what I'm hoping because I don't want to wait another day!

When they mailed out last Tuesday people in Cali had it Thursday. Just depends on how far you are and the time difference. Mine arrived 3 days from the day the status checker said it was mailed, and most everyone else had it in 2 days. Good luck stalking out your mailbox for the next 24 hours!

Any east coasters get a letter today? I'm on the west coast and want to know before I obsessively ask my wife to keep an eye out for the mail guy.

Ooh, I'd really like to know this, as well. I'm getting married in June, and we're probably going to end up in NC - she got into UNC dental school down the street.
