Went straight from "File Complete" to "Decision" today and received the acceptance phone call around 4pm. Packet will arrive via snail mail. How and when do we find out about scholarship info?

With a 167/3.5 do I stand a chance at $$$?

DM 1/26, Complete on 1/22. So the scholarships are via email? I applied for in-state, will getting a decision mean I was accepted for in-state?

I was mailed a scholarship application form asking me to fill out some information (really, really simple form) to be considered for merit aid. You should get one soon I'd think, considering the application said that Feb 1st was the deadline for priority consideration.

I received a status checker the day after I applied (1/11), so I would check your junk mail folder and then contact them if that fails you.

Congrats on the acceptances, guys.

I'm in state and got some aid money, it's going to be hard to pass up. Anyone going to the admitted scholars day or whatever on Feb. 24th?

Crap. I have similar numbers to school

At this point in the game, with a 3.7GPA and a 160, do y'all think I am out of the running? I am applying out of state. Hopefully, my LoR and Personal Statement will help out.

With that GPA you should be fine.

Question:

My status checker has said "Application Complete" since the 13th of January. Will the status check change to "decision" without first changing to "review"?

Thanks.

Edit: Nevermind... looks like this has been discussed in depth a few pages back.

For those who have been accepted did your status checker change before the call/acceptance letter?

My status changed to "Decision made and will arrive by mail." on 1/26. But they called today (1/27) saying I was accepted and said the packet was going into the mail today. Currently my status still says decision mailed and no additional fees are listed.

Kelly - 2 questions if you don't mind.

Were you an instate resident? Also, how long did you wait from when you submitted the application until you got your notice?

Thanks!

No problem. I am not instate, and I submitted on 1/11 and went complete on 1/13.

In this morning via phone call. The woman was very friendly and invited me to some reception in February.

Status changed to DM yesterday and still reads the same. In-state (I think) and I went DM only a couple days after completion.
