Accepted today as well (170 sub 3.0). Anyone know definitively what the deal is with scholarship money? The way I read the packet makes me think that financial aid info will be made available in April, but no mention of scholarship. I read that as I will receive nothing.

I went decision made on 1/29 and didn't get the waitlist email so i'mhoping that means an acceptance will be in the mail...unfortunately my post office is closed today due to water damage from snow over the weekend so i can't even check.

Just curious for the Waitlisters (of which I am one) if you marked Full Time, Part Time, of Full/Part time?

I clicked Full/Part just because i figured I could transfer full after a year. Also, did you read the part that said if you decided on AU they would contact you and you would have 24 hours to give them 900 dollars?

I was just wondring if this was standard operating procedures among school and waitlists, it souds kinda shady/ransom/james bondish to me.

I went complete January 20. A decision was made today. How were you guys notified of acceptances? Email? Regular mail? I don't know what to make of this. :x

Am I correct that there is no intermediate stage between "application complete" and "decision made" on the status checker?

Correct. At least that's how it was for me.

I'm in Athens, GA too, and I got my acceptance today! Went complete 1/19 and got the decision made notification 1/29. So don't worry, I'm sure yours should get to you either tomorrow or by the end of the week at least! :)

They send their acceptances via Priority Mail. At least, that seems the consensus and is how I got my acceptance as well.

I'm just trying to avoid American's sticker. It's pretty unpalatable versus GMU or other public schools in the commonwealth for us in-staters.

I'll take another look at it tomorrow to make sure.



Good clarification- it does say financial aid. However, it doesn't appear that anyone got any scholarship information, on TLS or on LSN.

LOL! Yeah I agree.. I was like 24 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is super intense. But I guess they really just wanna make sure you want them enough to make it worth their time. When did you get on the W/L?

status went to Decision Made on 2/1 also!

Since others seem to have been notified about WL via email and acceptance via priority mail, if I don't have mail by the end of Thursday I guess that means I'm out? Nerve racking.

it's too bad that the updates on LSN are self-selective and not automatic. I'd love to be reassured by the fact that practically no one who both completed and went decision made in the last two weeks has listed an outright rejection.
