Received my admissions packet in the mail with a letter congratulating me as well as saying that I could receive a merit scholarship at some point.

Did most people get their schollys in the mail with their admission packet or separately?

Mine came with my packet. Oddly, the page you are referencing was the front page and my scholly was on the second page. Just double check because this is the first time I have seen it this way out of 10 or so offers.

Mine came about a week or so later in a separate envelope, for what it's worth.

Got my packet about 2 weeks ago, getting a little nervous because I just got my scholly from BC and I really want to start negotiating asap.

Thanks for the info tho, the fact that it doesn't necessarily have to come with your admissions packet is very reassuring. Do you think it would be too forward of me to call or email them and inquire about a scholarship or should I wait another week or two?

Any info/advice would help. Thanks everyone.

On my third complete date on the status checker with a 171 and a 3.57. First 2/4, then 2/19, now 2/22. How many times does it usually update before going under review?

Generally four, but there have been a few instances of 5(+?).

Again, it sometimes varies, but usual 4 "complete" updates and then a decision.

I'm pretty sure they don't have a "in review" status. I think I had 3-4 complete updates and then the call.
