Did Seattle U only send out PT acceptances thus far?
I got a full time acceptance on 12/7
for those who have been admitted and have their scholarship info, when did you receive your scholarship info? with your admissions letter or after? was it in your email or snail mail?
In my acceptance email, it was indicated that I got a scholarship and that details were to arrive in snail mail in January
I found this online, which appears to be terms and conditions for last years scholarships
can you negotiate scholarship for SU?
Unfortunately, they have a non negotiable scholarship policy
@WildOliphant: okay same, except the wording of my said "financial aid" and I've heard most people have gotten their scholarships with their admissions letter.
Has anyone been admitted to SU this year without any scholarships?
My admissions email said I got a scholarship but did not indicate the details or conditions. It also said "A formal admissions package with details about enrollment, financial aid, upcoming events, and more" will arrive in the mail, so I'm guessing that's when the details come out
hi so update to my question. I emailed and asked and they said they made an error, and left my scholarship out of my admissions letter. they gave me a renewable full ride for staying in the top 50% of the class. that is wonderful and great (i mean I hate conditions but) but also how does one leave out a full ride from an admit letter?
my award amount was also left blank! just emailed to see if it was a mistake
update: they got back to me with scholarship info :) apparently the issue is through lsac, which is how they distribute acceptance letters
thanks for the updates y'all! I just emailed them too
omg ooooo, love this for us hahaha
For those who received scholarships guaranteed the first year and conditional 2L and 3L, did it outline that in your admissions email, or only state the first year's total?
It only stated first year, I emailed them for more info (and it came in the mail a few days later)
Anybody been admitted through access admission program?
How long did it take for SU to get back to you with a decision?
do yalls status checkers work????
Is it too late to apply to Seattle?
I know the deadline is technically 7/15, but still.
Honestly go for it, why not?
