R. I hope they told you why you were rejected :/
Mine was just a generic, “it’s all very competitive, consider us for residency or fellowship” email

I actually survived with a 516. I guess anything is possible...
Haha I was just playin, it’s a game of inches at this level and no one thing could be responsible. It’s best not to read too much into individual school decisions and just be thankful for what you get in my experience.

Did you get a separate R email for MSTP? They mentioned i was rejected from MSTP in the HST MD email lol, didn’t even get a separate response.
Nope. I applied Pathways though.

Sorry yeah upon closer reading nominated, but I come from a very very low income background so I’d imagine I’d qualify for the “need based” portion easily
Yeah seems like as long as they can confirm that you are need based you would get it?
I have a pretty low EFC as well, so I’m interested in what the criteria is. I actually can’t find any information about the scholarship

I got the Reach scholarship!! Anyone know how much that is for LOL
Exact same situation here...

To clarify, we’re you nominated for REACH? I thought they haven’t made decisions for that yet
REACH recipient here. It’s a different kind of scholarship. It’s both merit and need-based. Merit-based in the sense that you had to demonstrate some aspect of the acronym in your application. Need-based in the sense that eligibility and amount come down to your financial need. You’ll find out what you’re eligible for in April when financial aid offers are made. So make sure you get your FAFSA and CSS Profile in ASAP. If you want more specifics about it, feel free to PM me.

Anyone else still not heard anything post-II? Haven't gotten any emails yet. I'm assuming I'm rejected at this point...

Can any kind soul explain to me the new financial aid changes at HMS like i am 5 years old. HMS is dope but that unit loan is not, so this is exciting.
Here is my understanding of it... may not be 100% correct

“The new formula for awarding HMS scholarships will be determined by subtracting the expected family contribution (EFC) from the total of HMS tuition plus fees.”

M1 2019 - 2020 tuition and fees = $65,203

For example, say your EFC is $5,000
65,203 - 5,000 = $60,203 in scholarships.

With a total COA of $95,055, subtracting $60,203 in scholarships, you are now expected to pay $35,055 per year via personal money, outside acholships, and institutional/federal loans.
