I applied for PI and they have already offered $45000. I'm hoping that the PI would be on top of that???
I currently live in Peru and my mom had a missed call from BU today with no message. The admissions office knows i'm out of the country but i guess the finaid office hasn't gotten the memo. I really hope it's a PI scholarship offer. That would probably seal the deal for me.
I really wanted in to Cornell at the beginning of this cycle but they EA deferred me and and i can probably expect to wait until April and then get zero money even if I get in. On top of that I'd have to live in middle of nowhere Ithaca.
BU it is then? AHHHHH the suspense is killing me. Can't call back until tomorrow! Will keep you posted.

I recieved the PI Scholar award. 30,000 per year. They already sent me a letter stating i would get a 15,000 per year merit award. Now is this in leiu of or in addition to the merit award? How do i tactfully ask that?
