Is anyone this cycle a reapplicant? I have a question! :)
You might get better traction on the general chat
I am
Anybody else get an oddly poor offer from WashU given stats? Wondering if I messed up in my scholarship interview or what.
Did your interviewer allude to how much you would get during your interview? Mine said they would recommend me for dean's fellowship but couldn't promise anything (and I likely won't get update for at least another month)
could also be that they're shooting for a 173 this year
Not at all. Just asked me what extracurriculars I'd be interested in and what career services. Was unprepared for the former and might've made it seem like I wouldn't do anything other than study. 173 target makes more sense though.
people who have done the scholarship interview: How long did it take for them to send the interview invite after getting accepted? It's been almost a week for me and i'm trying to find out if that's normal
I got the invite to the scholarship interview 10 days after being admitted, so I think it's normal
For those that are getting in, how are you being notified?
Beggggging WashU to hit my line
Notified via call.
For scholly call, it took me like 10 days as well until I got an invite
WashU doesnt notify via Status checker?
*staring at status checker blankly*
nope ::/
*stares at phone expecting something to happen*
[] FluffyHesitantOwl
so is 173 the new number
it better not be gosh diddly darn it
Do you think I will get any money (if I even get in) from WashU St. Louis (163, 4.0)
WashU hooks it up
i think idk i have no idea
