    This is partially to share my great news with everybody on the forum (since I got lots of help from you all by lurking all summer) and to let everyone know who's applying next year about this awesome scholarship.

    It's the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarship, which pays full tuition plus fees plus a stipid for living expenses. This year was the first year and it was only available to those who had any connection to the Maryland, Virginia, DC area (I qualified by going to undergrad at JHU), but they are hoping to expand nationwide and international maybe as early as next year. It's available to anyone going into any graduate program, and covers all four years. This year they awarded fifty and all I have to do is stay in good standing and attend some weekend retreat at the end of July. Not bad, huh?

    oops, never paid attention on how to edit.

    The scholarship pays for any school I want and the website is jackkentcookefoundation.org

    wow, people check this often!

    Right now I'm going to Vanderbilt, but I was waitlisted at my top choice school (Wash U) and also at JHU and Pritzker. I'm hoping a copy of the scholarship letter will help my chances of getting off the waitlist.

    My stats....hmmmmm. ok, here goes.
    GPA: 3.99 (yes, i'm a nerd)
    MCAT: 33S

    is the scholarship mainly merit based (ie. GPA, awards, etc.)?

    dang! with that 3.99 from JHU, you deserve a full-ride... good luck on those waitlists!
