I just noticed moose's post:
I wrote a letter to Dean Trujillo outlining my serious financial situation and requested some assistance,..I did this on the advice of the Fin Aid Director. Well,...I got a response this morning. Basically Dean Trujillo said UVA has received more seat deposits than expected and any adjustments would have to be made in May. He also said he'll keep my appeal and if they were under budget he will be back in touch with me.
Is this about scholarship/need-based aid availability, or about WL seats availability?
"Dean Trujillo said UVA has received more seat deposits than expected"
I guess it means more ppl than they expected want to attend UVA?
OK, point taken.
I only asked because the post was framed as a discussion of financial aid, and it appears that Trujillo's response was meant to address financial issues only. Therefore, if "more than expected" means something different in issues of financial aid than it does in issues of waitlist openings, we have something else altogether. I was just making sure. If "more than expected" is significant in a waitlist openings context only, I can't imagine why Trujillo would mention it in response to a request for money.
