The packet doesn't say anything about when it comes out, but if you look on the admitted students site it says late-February.
In case anyone wants a little more info on schollies and Fin. Aid, etc. This was the email response I received today to an inquiry about scholarship information."We send out scholarship information in late February/early March. Financial Aid packages are mailed April 1 to permanent addresses. After deposits are received on April 15, and we have a better idea of who is seriously considering matriculation, we will send out additional scholarship offers." - Alison H. Price, Associate Dean and Director of Admissions
Well I'm seriously considering attending, but not without a scholarship offer. But I certainly won't send a deposit without one. If I knew I wasn't getting an offer now I would withdraw now. Seems like this policy sucks for those waiting for others to withdraw.
Meh. The school's sticker price for a resident is already 25%-33% of what the private institutions are charging without scholarship, which is why I haven't withdrawn and it's seriously still on the table for me. So while 99 times out of 100 I'd credit your statement, I don't think it's true here.
Mason is also on the record saying they give very, very few scholarships, precisely because 1) they have no money, and 2) they're already charging pennies for tuition.
