I saw a scholarship section on the status checker and received an acceptance a week later!

Any conclusions as to if the Scholarship section was there from the start? I noticed mine two weeks ago.
Also my app has been "in review" since 02/26, but my paragraph at the top just changed to a message saying this. Any thoughts?
@Skydog1969: if your paragraph disappeared you should hear something back ASAP
@TooTheMoon: It didn't disappear per say, it just changed lol. So I am confused

Did you happen to have the scholarship section the whole time or did it randomly appear?
@Skydog1969: Thank you and honestly don't even know but one day I did notice it. So not sure if it was really there the whole time.
@nugsnotdrugs: That seems to be the consensus
Does anyone know if all the scholarships they offer are conditional?
