If you go through last year's thread there were a couple let off the waitlist April 30-May 1 who got merit scholarships! I'm sure they open up as their original recipients decline them and go elsewhereDoes anyone know if WUSM offers merit-based aid to students on the waitlist? I accepted my position but would probably not attend unless I got a generous merit-based scholarship.
I know this sounds strange considering WUSM did not even want me in the first batch of accepted students, but I know the institution has boatloads of money and oftentimes 'sweetens the pot' for students who are admitted to comparable schools.
Again, I am expecting the answer to be 'no' but since I know people at other institutions sometimes get merit-based scholarships off of waitlists, so I figured I would ask.
Congrats to those accepted and my condolences to those who did not receive the decision they wanted.
