    Does UConn give out any merit scholarships, or is it basically all loans?

    Yeah they sent an email to everyone Friday. The official papers are on their way now via snail mail. Check your spam folder, that's where the email ended up going for me.

    They have very few merit scholarships. I have a couple of friends that recieved small ones, such as a 20k scholarship (5k each year), and they both scored 36+ on the MCAT.

    Hmm, not a lot of activity on the Uconn thread this year... I interviewed in January and was placed on the high alternate list shortly after. Anyone else in a similar situation?

    I'm in the exact situation. Sucks waiting. They told me that the high alternate rankings would be ranked the end of may/ early june. I'm gonna contact them next week to see if there are any changes.

    And ya not a lot of activity. I wonder how many people are on the high alternate list this year...

    Yeah I wonder the same. I assumed they wouldn't rank until after the May 15th deadline. Heres to hoping there are many withdrawals and the high alt list is kept small, woo I rhymed lol :laugh:

    High alternate list is definitely a good place to be for everyone that is waiting. In past years they have usually admitted most of the applicants on the high alternate list. Also maybe send in a letter of intent if UConn is your top choice. I hope to be classmates with some of you in the fall!

    EDIT: I also know three people that withdrew today and that's just from the small circle of people I know that were admitted to UConn, hopefully movement on the wait-lists will come soon.

    Accepted this morning via email! I've been on the high alternate list since January and this is my first acceptance. I sent an update letter yesterday, I'm not sure if it influenced the decision at all though. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

    Congrats bluv1212. Im still waiting but they told me I was in the top third of the high alternate list. Has anyone else been accepted or withdrew lately? Im really surprised by the lack of activity on the board this year compared to years past. Hopefully more movement will come soon.
