I did! I'm guessing that the scholarship amounts range from person to person since the website doesn't give specifics.
Yay! Congrats, Apples. I'm also interested in what the scholarship will end up being, and if it will negate the earlier scholarship I was offered on admission or if, assuming they don't exceed the total cost of attendance, we get them both. I didn't think to ask this on the phone, and I actually had a pretty funny experience answering the call. I was listening to music on my when the call came, answered and couldn't figure out how to switch from earplug sound to normal sound, thus loosing any ability to hear the other speaker for a good thirty seconds after I said "Yes, this is ccs." As she was congratulating me, I was too embarrassed to ask, "Excuse me, who are you and where are you calling from again?" It wasn't until the end of the call that I realized it was BU!
