you're really not missing out on anything. noone has received any scholarship packages. that's about the only important thing to expect in the mail from admissions.



But it's CUTE! ...I assume.
haha....it does look nice...

I am getting a little bit irritated with the scholarship stuff. They said "middle of February" and it is now the "end of February" and still not a word for anyone. If they give me a big enough number I can withdraw from a bunch of waitlists and schools I haven't heard from. Free up spots for other people, and start to narrow down my options. I wish they hadn't created the expectation of a certain date, in the first place.

ETA Sorry if that sounds entitled. I just feel like WUSTL really depends on the money for me, and I would be willing to telll them yes or no almost immediately. Seems like it would be better for everyone to get numbers out there.

They also stated that they require receipts, so I'm not sure if mileage will be reimbursed or just gas, arline, hotel, rental car, etc. since they have a receipt.

Someone could email and ask if they reimburse mileage.

The email they sent out states that you just have to fill out an application when you get there for ASD. No mention of a reimbursement email.

I think that's fair. Its hard to not sound entitled when you are feeling like you should be hearing about a scholarship from them, I have been feeling the same way. When you're thinking about higher ranked schools a big scholarship from a school like Wash U may be the only thing to shift you back to them. I just was to hear for my own mental health. Makes me feel a little better that no one else has heard either...

I'm in the exact same boat. As soon as I can get that information I can really start to make some decisions. Wash U is my first choice, but it's really only gonna happen if I can get the money to go there. I think we'd all like to have a better idea of where we are going to be 6 months from now :wink:

At least one after the original complete date, but I stopped checking my status after awhile since I didn't think WUSTL was ever going to get back to me!

Same here, I'd like to hear about possible $ so I can begin to make some decisions.

Thanks everyone! Now I really have to think about it.. I hadn't even considered WashU since I didn't think I'd even get in!

I have a feeling that the city of St. Louis hates me. SLU said they had 50 finalists for the 1843, but I wasn't one of them (and my numbers are above most of those who've actually won them in the past), and WUSTL has held me at complete since 2/5, and I have about the same GPA, but a 166, but no response yet. It must have been all the times I berated the Cardinals when I was rooting for the Cubs at Busch.

Thank you!!! I applied in early December and it went complete on 12/4. I didn't really check after that, but I think there was one change after the initial complete date - so maybe two total? I really don't know. Good luck to everyone!!! :D

Same thing with me, although I went 2/3, 2/10, 2/23. It seems like two updates before a decision is the norm.

so since you have the 2 updates when do you think you'll receive a decision? or is there another update before a decision?

also do you mind sharing your stats?
