    Are you looking in the right spot? Financial aid tab -> continue to SFS section -> award tab at the top?
    Everyone is automatically considered for the dean's scholarship so you didn't need to submit anything. I don't know if they offer any other scholarships you need to specifically apply to

    After Financial Aid>SFS Management Section the only tabs I see at the top (with green background) are General Info, Documents, Message Center, Scholarship Survey. I'm not seeing an award tab. Perhaps I'm in the wrong section?

    Nope you're in the correct spot I have those tabs + award. Good news for everyone who doesn't have the tab- you're not out of the game yet!

    Has anyone gotten an official acceptance email from admissions? Or has it all been communication from interviewers?

    I interviewed late September and literally thought I bombed my interview. So, when I got a phone call this morning with an area code from Boston, I thought it was a commercial call. Checked my email, and my interviewer told me I recieved an acceptance! I’m so happy for the opportunity haha

    Does everyone get the same amount for the Dean's Scholarship? How do they decide how much to give to everyone?

    I'm happy that the people who were accepted heard back and got good news but idk it's starting to bother me that this information isn't transmitted from one source to all of the involved applicants. Just seems kind of unfair and inconsiderate in my opinion lol.

    Yeah especially since they know all the decisions. If they're going to allow interviewers to share the good news optionally the day before, they should have the decisions set to go out early the next day.

    Got the acceptance call today while at work so I didn’t get a chance to answer it but received an email from my interviewer a few hour later letting me know I’d been accepted!! Super pumped!

    That’s what it seems like. Looks like all accepted applicants got this email at the same time

    PSA the dean's scholarship/award info tab disappeared when my portal updated to reflect my acceptance, so it's possible that was an accident/glitch and didn't mean anything.

    I think they’re going out by #of applicants in each pool, from smallest to largest (so accepted, rejected, then deferred)
