Tell us what's important to you
Don’t know how they do decisions.
I believe everyone gets that prior to receiving their decision
Copy, thanks for clarification! Just want a decision so I can be done with cycle at this point.
Yeah I think you get it regardless of outcome from what I've seen
it was like 3-4 days between pending and decision for me if i remember right
y'all were right just got a scholarship interview invite
full scholly incoming then
@Mountaineer99: huge! congrats
Has anyone noticed that UTK has updated their scholarship website? Stipend for TN law scholars has almost doubled
And 509 shows only 4 "more than full tuition" for 2023, compared to 21 in 2022
They're making people interview for it now so it seems competitive at least
i applied in dec and they didnt request my cas report. after getting in contact with them they told me i have to request it? I didn't have to do that for any of my schools and now I'm very confused
assuming you assigned rec letters to them and all that through CAS
you shouldn't have to...
anyone else on here interview for TLS?
Yeah I did, It was strange only lasted about 10 minutes
okay mine was about the same
i was worried
seems like the norm, thanks!
sweet I was worried too, Do you think they'll get back to us soon?
no clue, i'm hoping for early march
the original email says "Those finalists who are not ultimately selected for the TLS Program will still be eligible for one of our other competitive scholarships, which will be awarded after March 1st."
idk if that implies TLS decisions are on march 1st or not
seems like a weird way to word things
I'm just ready for this to be over
Seems like they're giving out far fewer full rides than in previous years. wonder what that's about...
@BaldEagle02: same here
@FlaveIrritatingSalamander: i think they're not going to announce the higher scholarship awards until march
