Got some scholarship info from the Admissions Office - Scholarship notices will be sent out Feb 15. Don't know how many, but at least some admits should get something in the mail in a little over two weeks.

I can confirm this. I asked them the same question and got the same answer.

I've been complete for a few weeks now. Grr.

Glad to see decisions are coming in, though. Best of luck to everyone and congrats to those already accepted!

Complete since 12/7. They clearly are not reviewing apps on a purely rolling basis.

Complete since 11/13. I suspect you may be correct. :P

Yup. I'd be pissed if I hadn't already gotten into one of my top choices.

Went into review today after being complete on 12/7. How long does this usually take?

Question...

I am applying for one of the scholarships listed on Villanova's web page that says I "need to submit a personal statement describing in detail your eligibility under the stated criteria." Should I mail this personal statement along with my financial aid application? Should I include a resume as well? Any opinions?

Yeah, anyone know what's going on there? Because people who applied AFTER me are getting decisions before me...

It does seem really odd that there seems to have been a kind of torrent of acceptances early on, followed by a very slow and seemingly random trickle. According to LSN, they haven't even denied or waitlisted anybody yet.
I've said it before and I'll say it again- I have a spooky feeling that Villanova is going to ding me... but WHEN???
