That question reminds me of the "Raise your hand if you're not here" joke. Please respond, nobody, if you got a call. :wink:

They actually e-mailed me my acceptance and sent the package to my Mom's house in Colorado. I'm living abroad (like wayy abroad), so I guess this was actually the right thing to do. The scholarship info came two weeks later to my mother, who almost used it for kindling.

Got an email yesterday saying they want my grades from this semester soon as I get them. Does this mean anything? I took it that if they wanted to waitlist or reject me straight out they would have done that. Or am I wrong and it means nothing? Also, should I e-mail them and make sure they know I am still very much interested in attending and will send my grades in as soon as possible or do they know that implicitly and will keep my file under review till I send it to them?

It's probably more related to GPA trend than what your cumulative GPA actually is.

3.74. Which is nearing to their 75th, so it's not exactly like I've got a low gpa and they're looking for an upward trend, unless they're hoping I can boost it more so as to shift their rankings? idk
