Its official, "After careful consideration...I am sorry to inform you etc." They do suggest that if I really want to go there I should apply for transfer after my 1st year, yadda yadda yadda. Good Luck to everyone else. BTW condolences are not necessary, I checked my status checker one last time before I sent an email to withdraw from consideration. I got in to a somewhat lower ranked school (Top 30), with a much lower sticker price and scholarship. So I didn't the withdrawal just to see it I had gotten in. Again good luck to everyone else.

Nah, I'm in Kuwait right now so it takes a little while for mail to catch up. The decision date was on the tenth, so I figure it got mailed out then and got here yesterday on the 19th. My wife wanted me to wait on my acceptance at William & Mary, because she really liked Cornell, and I told her with my numbers I shouldn't have even applied. It worked out though. Sticker on in-state on W&M is 21K a year, my GI Bill cover most of that.

Thanks for your service and be sure to come home safely!

I did an independent study this past semester on the "U.S. homefront during war" and we mostly focused on WWII. It was a history class and although I'm an econ major I really enjoyed it. Anyway, one of the books I had to read was Suzanne Mettler's "Soldiers to Citizens: The G.I. Bill and the Making of the Greatest Generation." If you have some time off when you get back you might want to give it a read. Very interesting. Good luck @ William & Mary!

just got decision on my status checker. (I was EAC 11/16.)

Now what is the consensus? Can I call tomorrow? Is that going to look bad?

Do we have any idea how many people are asked to apply for the Dean's Scholarship?

Trying to get a sense of the odds.

Cheers!

+1, I would like to know this as well. Seems like quite a few TLSers have been told they were under consideration.

Well, we've seen about 15-20 different people mention it on TLS. Obviously, that group is limited to those who are on TLS and who don't mind sharing information about their application status. My guess--and it's only a guess--is that about 40-50 applicants were offered the opportunity to apply for the Dean's Scholarship. And that's just from the EA pool. I am sure there will be at least a few others from the RD pool who will also be asked to apply for the scholarship.

So, at the end of the day, I'm guessing it's going to be something like 60-100 invitations (a big range, I realize) for the 10 scholarships. Of those 60-100, there will probably be several who won't bother to apply because they have already decided to attend higher ranked schools.

All of the above is speculation. If anyone has a more informed perspective, it would be great to hear it.

As conjecture goes, this seems pretty reasonable to me.

Here's another question. Is it fair to assume that ~10 people will ultimately get the scholarship? Or should we only assume that ~10 people will be offered the scholarship?

I've been wondering about that as well. I think it would almost have to be close to 10 people that get the scholarship, since it would be safe to assume that a lot of people would turn it down to attend higher ranked schools. Meaning that if they offered only 10, probably less than 5 would be awarded (which seems unlikely based on LSN, etc). My guess is that 100 or so people are offered the chance to apple for the scholarship, but I really have no idea.

Still EAC 10/1 . . . is there anyone else still EAC from October? Any speculation on whether it's good or bad to not have heard yet after applying so early. Not expecting an acceptance because it's a longshot for my numbers, but curious why they wouldn't have rejected me by now if they were going too.

You aren't a terrible longshot. I think you will probably get EA deffered and WL/In during the regular cycle. They admitted a handful of 4.0/165's last cycle, and your UCLA acceptance tells me you probably have other things going for you above the numbers.
