    Did anyone receive one? I spoke to Gayle last week and she said that they would be awarding up to 8-10 of them.

    I haven't even got my financial aid packet. I think they go out at the same time. Has anybody received their packets yet?

    not me.. .but I sure would like to get a full ride scholarship! What do I need to do to be one of the lucky 8-10? :D I haven't gotten my financial aid stuff yet either. Was told to call them if I don't have it by early next week.

    I don't think that the financial aid package will include this info, though. The full tuition scholarships are awarded by the Admissions Office, not by the Financial Aid Office.

    I heard that UCI is offering some full ride scholarships specifically to students that would traditionally matriculate at another school (based on grades, MCAT, ECs etc.) in an effort to draw a stronger student body to UCI (not to say that their student body is lacking, I have a lot of friends at UCI med. and they are all brilliant, wonderful people) - that is just what I heard... they are offering some full tuition scholarships to help boost their rep. and help them meet their (rumored) goal of moving up in the rankings to a UCSD/UCLA level over the next 5-10 years.

    you don't have to do anything to apply, the admissions committee reccomends people.

    Hope some free money is headed your way :)

    All scholarships are given to attract a better student body...you can take the above statement with a whole lot of salt.

    (with my best Homer Simpson dialect) ooooh... mooonneey! <img border="0" alt="[Lovey]" title="" src="graemlins/lovey.gif" /> Bummer though - do you think that they would have already offered these scholarships to keep students that otherwise may have w/d'n before May 15? Did anyone get one of these scholarships? :confused:

UC Davis is the only other UC that I have heard of offering them to very exceptional students.

    I would presume that by now, all 8-10 of the scholarships have been awarded, no?

I got the number directly from Gayle
