Secondly, if you have questions about scholarship money and going to wake talk to Melanie Nutt. DO NOT be afraid to call the Wake admissions office. They are always there to help you and answer your questions. I promise they will not be annoyed with you and dock points from your file or whatever. They are the sweetest people. I honestly think Wake is one of the few schools that will actually look at the person behind the numbers. They want students who really want to be here. So if you call Melanie and tell her how much you like Wake and how a scholarship could help you, I'm sure she can give you all the answers you need.
Thanks for the response. I don't know if you'd be fit to answer this. But would it be worthwhile to wait and see if I will get offered a scholarship or to just call and talk the Melanie Nutt?
I would wait and see what you get offered. Wake is well-known for being generous with scholarship money.
Also, for those of you going, I got some great news - my parents decided to pay for my wife and I to fly up for the Scholar's Day on the 5th of February, so maybe I will see some of you there!
