For folks who got accepted, how long did it take to get your packet in the mail with scholarship info? I got a call saying I was accepted last Monday, but haven't gotten anything in the mail yet. I do live in Hawaii though, so it may take a little longer than usual.
took about a week for me
I got accepted on Tuesday and they said my scholarship should arrive early next week. I live in Iowa so it will probably take longer for you

I was admitted, but I felt like my scholarship package was skimpy, what should I do?
@Thewrightlawyer: they don't reconsider, or at least that's what they told me when I went through the whole process. They'll set you up with their financial counselor instead.
honestly, idk what jobs are in columbia
where do grads go?
They would not reconsider for me either. Still felt like I got a pretty good offer though.
@NecessaryLudicrousDevil: late reply but isn't KC for UMKC grads?
They also refused to reconsider for me. Still a very affordable option for most though.
