does gw do waves every other wednesday?

its frustrating to see past year's admits receiving 50%+ more merit scholarship than I just did with worse hard stats :/
TemporaryHeartbreakingChihuahua
16:15
When do we think the next wave of scholarships will be sent?

Given what I got from both BU and GWU, and given my goals, it would seem kind of idiotic of me to take GWU. So, I'll probably withdraw pretty soon. The only thing keeping me from doing so now is that I do find the prospect of getting federal government connections by being in DC somewhat alluring.

On the other hand, I've never been very good at networking, so I don't know how successful I'd be in establishing such connections.

this might be a dumb question but will GW email you if you don't receive any merit aid? haven't heard yet and am overthinking rn lol
AdjoiningKindBison
13:40
you can call and ask if anything's been llocated to you yet!
Is it weird that my app still doesn't say complete?
babybunny
16:38
mine says decision made but not what the decision is?? anyone know how long you have to wait for your decision
babybunny
16:40
wait nvm it says up to three days
16:40
i think it usually comes quicker than that!! decision made for me too so fingers crossed haha
babybunny
16:43
ooh wishing good luck for both of us!!
17:51
Just got hit with the DLS followed by an R
18:39
Is there a difference between Hold and WL at GW?
18:42
Status change email but no status change lol
20:05
@BootsTheHaus: I went from hold to A rather quickly
20:05
@BootsTheHaus: I don't think it's the same as a waitlist
TemporaryHeartbreakingChihuahua
12:49
Do we think there will be more merit scholarships awarded or are they done sending those out?
14:10
@TemporaryHeartbreakingChihuahua: I just got one a couple of minutes ago
Got my R yesterday, bummed but c'est la vie, forward and onward, good luck everyone
18:07
Do we think they’ll continue this wave tomorrow? Mine jumped to the top and date changed a couple times since Thursday but nothing today lol
10:46
Question about GW law. If we don't receive a scholarship offer by Thurs. after already being admitted is it safe to assume we won't be getting one?
TemporaryHeartbreakingChihuahua
12:11
@tetongravity: Pretty much. I emailed them and that is essentially what they said.
12:37
Thank you. That'll make my decision quite easy then...
Just got an update of status on my application?

What are some schools GW considers peers for scholarship negotiations?
18:32
About how long do folks typically spend on the priority hold list
12:14
I got in in October. Hoping to get a scholarship email today
