did they tell you what the mysterious scholarship was?

they said all would be explained in the finaid email.


lol why are they being so secretive about it, I wonder?

I assume the letter also contains all sorts of LOST spoilers and details of upcoming Apple products.

I got the call at about 1:30 today, in the middle of lunch with a professor at NYU accepted students day. Glad the wait is finally over. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear.

I can't imagine they are going in alphabetical order, are they?

Based on the last batch, do they stop at 5? Or does it go on for a while or over multiple days?

Well...10 more minutes and no call. It was fun to dream, even if just for a little while. Congrats to those who got in! I'll post again when I get my ding/WL on Monday.

Congrats to all the new admits. I know its a great feeling. When I got my call in January it popped up on the television's caller ID (which I had repeatedly complained about to COX and tried to disable :lol: ) I just started freaking out that Univ. of Chicago was on my TV. Ahhhhh Good times...Congrats again to everyone!!!

Out of curiosity, is there a reason that they send out decisions other than acceptances on the Mondays following Friday phone calls? Do acceptances without phone calls trickle in for a while or are Fridays it? It seems to me that not receiving notification on Friday means bad news. So why not just send all decisions together rather than have people hang in pessimistic limbo over a weekend?

To give us the opportunity to go on a three-day drinking bender that leaves us with such a bad hangover the inevitable disappointing email doesn't hurt as much in relation?

I received my waitlist e-mail on a Friday (during the last round of decisions), so I'm not sure about all of this.

There were 55 accepts on 2-5 and only 7 on 3-5?

I know its only been a few hours, but this seems like very few offers...

If LSN represents 10% of most top schools, does that mean on 2-5 they offered 550 actualy seats or something like that??? If so wow....
