Saya-

Was looking at your information and read that you were offered scholarship money during your acceptance phone call... is this right? I wonder if I would be correct to infer that since I was not offered any money during my call that I do not have any coming my way...

Either way, incredibly grateful to be accepted.

I'm not Saya, but I was offered the same scholarship haha. And I was under the impression that only the big scholarships are offered over the phone, but that smaller scholarships are granted later. So there's definitely still a chance for merit aid.

I think this extension of ED is a stunningly brilliant ploy by the admissions folks at UVA. I went complete/UR on 12/1, and I'm very seriously thinking about sending one in. Harvard and Yale remain longshots, I LOVE UVA, but I'm bugging out about merit aid at other places. I figure I'm a lock for 70k at one of the T14s, and I don't want to commit anywhere before I have an idea about money. Would it be kosher for me to email them, be honest about my circumstances, and hope that I get a response I like?

Thank you! I guess with a 3.5 I can't realistically expect too much, haha

Dude srsly, I don't hate somebody who does well. I do hate somebody who has to rub everyone's faces in it. The admissions game has been relatively kind to me, btw, and I don't hate it at all. Managamy: DIAF.


A lot of doucebaggery comes from his direction. I think he's probably the most elaborate flame on TLS.

They get an image, not paper, of your application and that is the default status after they get it...

Just got the Email and called, I am in!

If they dont discuss Scholarships on the phone, does that mean you dont get one?

Dang, hopefully I get an okay scholarship. I really like UVa a lot, but it would have to turn down Chicago, or NYU, etc. without a good scholarship. Thanks!
