i didn't check my status checker before I got in, but it was different once I was accepted
IncompetentHelplessChinchilla
13:51
like idk if it went complete -> decision rendered or anything like that, but rn it says "Admitted"
IncompetentHelplessChinchilla
13:51
So it was email for me, but i don't religiously check status checkers

How long from A to get scholarship info?
IncompetentHelplessChinchilla
15:03
i think it was like 2-3 weeks?
what day/time do they release decisions?
Fridays are usually acceptances I believe
I applied 11/3 and i've heard nothing. this is the only school i've yet to hear back from.
22:34
has anyone been accepted but hasn't received a scholarship email yet? does this mean I will get no scholarship?
10:13
^^^
I haven’t gotten scholarship yet
They said they’d start releasing merit scholarships in February
15:01
I got accepted in December and I'm seeing people accepted after me getting scholarships :/
Yeah, I got in December 20th… can they hurry tf up
begging AU to stop emailing me unless it's about scholarship :')
Why are they ghosting so many people? I’m at the point where I have a few offers and even if they accept me, this leaves such a bad taste. And by ghosting, let me be specific applied in October in order to hit the scholarship deadlines. But alas.
Do u ever go UR for American or is just complete?
14:08
just chiming in to say I also still haven't heard any scholarship info

@WickedBoringDragonfly: no mine went straight to complete and has been that way since december 1

I went complete in late November. Crickets since then.
12:20
Same, I went complete in the end of November and I've heard absolutely nothing since. It would have just been nice to know when we hear back, I'm honestly taking them out of my consideration at this point. For me, it's not worth waiting on them
@LawCat: I’m right there with you

Do we think there will be a wave today? It is a Friday lol
SteelersReignSupreme
10:07
I hope so I think there is a good chance its getting late in the cycle and they have a lot of applications left.
12:32
last year's WL and R's didn't start until march, sadly.
12:51
I see some scholarship offers for this cycle. do we know when that happened? Or if there is still more to come?
FlatSmoothGnome
14:28
it seems the last trickle (because they dont do big waves) was on the 16th which was last friday so hopefully their is something today or next friday.
FlatSmoothGnome
14:29
the last rejection trickle was on 2/07 they rejected quite a few this was 2 wednesdays ago. I think they are very random with their acceptances/ rejections though
FlatSmoothGnome
14:30
it also looks like they dont waitlist you til around march so if you havent heard in a very long time they may have you on their waitlist and havent said anything yet.
17:04
dang no wave today it looks like (2/23, 5 pm EST)
