doesnt iowa do a scholarship interview
@EzrealFizz13: From what I understand, it's more a formality to make sure people are serious about attending - apparently they gave away too many scholarships or something a few years back
10:25
did anyone's staus tracker banner disappear prior to decisions

grats to all the A's. Anyone have insights into the "preliminary waitlist"?
CaptainBlood
17:19
Think they’re done handing out As for today? My status checker moved to the top of law hub
That's probably a good sign that a decision is inbound
I'm also on the "preliminary waitlist"
StripedBumpyBeagle
15:08
@SkillfulHurriedLadybird: same here, I am wondering if this is the same as a hold considering they mention people would be transferred to an official waitlist later. I also am curious if anyone has received an A off the prelim prior to official waitlist times
My status paragraph disappeared (at the top) - hoping that means movement soon lol
"Preliminary waitlist" for me too. Only took 6 months for them to respond with, "we aren't sure"
Brutal cycle lol
18:06
Anyone received any scholarship details in recent weeks?
22:21
I got accepted after being "in review" for about 2 1/2 months. Insanely slow process.

Just got accepted! What is the scholarship interview like?

15:47
@TheBeefGuy: super chill - why law, why iowa, and some other typical interview Qs
I applied back in December and am still waiting, is this a bad sign or a possibly good one because everyone I know who applied already heard back with mixed decisions.
StripedBumpyBeagle
21:11
apparently someone just interviewed today and the mentioned they ran out of scholarship money
StripedBumpyBeagle

2 for 2 on that

How long did it take for a scholarship after the interview

15:08
@TheBeefGuy: 2 days for me - interviewed on sat and got the offer monday. i've heard it can take longer but i feel like it's pretty quick usually?
12:24
Hi ya'll. Still waiting to hear from a few schools but thinking I will probably decide on Iowa. Will any of you be going there?
TheBeefGuy
12:31
Did you get your scholarship info via email?
12:55
I did my interview last week. I haven't heard anything. Luckily I have the GI Bill, which is like 26k a year
TheBeefGuy
11:14
Had my interview on March 7th and still no offer. How do you expect people to deposit if there is no scholarship offer.

@GIBiller: i think im going to iowa!
12:09
Omg maybe we'll be classmates! I'm still waiting to hear from a couple of schools, but I'm leaning toward Iowa
kasiakasiakasia
17:14
yaayyyy! Yeah, im on a couple waitlists and still have no heard back from 2, but i put in that first deposit!
