Does anyone know what's going on? And why its taking forever?
They said 'within 30 days' and for me its approaching 50 lol
@OMCWlovepickle: Yeah I got in with a decent chunk of $. took literally forever tho
@CrazyCroc1519: I know they've had a lot of weird stuff going on with alum and stuff but idk if that's affecting decision wait time. I applied 9/30 and finally heard back 12/2.
@NaturalEconomicMillipede: I submitted 9/30
Date update, just noticed tonight but (12/06)
Gotcha ok thank you!
Wait what’s going on with their alum?
Did any one get a scholarship application email today?
@FabulousFairyFart: i think it has something to do with their lack of support for LGBTQ+ students but im not sure of the extent of it
@NaturalEconomicMillipede: i got something about the marshall-motley but i think thats a national scholarship
Ahhhh I see
