I don't know, but I was just accepted and received an application. If anyone knows, please post.brothersboff said:Anyone have any idea when we're supposed to find out if we're finalists? Anyone hear themselves?
hey it's due march 15, it's the merit scholarship application.brothersboff said:Yeah, I vaugely remember something like that as well, but I thought it might have been for the scholarship for women. The fact that they're still giving out applications is a good sign though, for those of us who haven't heard.
Sparky, when is your application due?
I think they are separately decided. When I was there in late February, I caught a glimpse of a sheet that said "Olin Scholarship Semifinalists," which listed 12 names. Since the merit scholarship deadline isn't for a few weeks, I would imagine that the selection process is separate.CalicoKat said:I got the official you-ain't-getting-an-Olin-penny-outta-us letter today from Wash U, so I think if you haven't yet heard that you're a finalist for that one, you may be out of luck. I think the Olin fellowship (for women) and the other merit scholarships are selected separately though? I'm trying to hold on to a glimmer of hope....
Wishing you all the best at your interview. When will you actually find out if you are an Olin winner? Is Wash U your #1 choice even if you don't get the scholarship?Treg said:Just FYI, the Olin had ~450 applicants (from all of the graduate schools). There are 25 finalists for 12-13 awards. Wish me luck this weekend at my interview
lorelei said:When I called them a few weeks ago (I think that's how long it was) they said the committee was meeting today, April 4, and finalist notifications would begin right away (tonight and the next few days).
I have not heard anything since, though.
Go interview, can't hurt right?Roxyfoxy said:I received a call from from John Walters today about the interview. I guess if you are selected as a merit scholarship recipient, you have to either accept or deny the offer when they tell you over the phone. I am torn between Penn and Wash U. Penn gave me a substantial scholarship...but not full. What are your guys' thoughts on that?
Roxyfoxy said:Yeah, I am definitely in the same boat as you are ADOC...I really liked Penn and when I interviewed at Wash U, I didn't have a good day there. Given that my opinion maybe biased considering that I couldn't fall asleep all night at Olin the night before and got stalked by this weird guy when I went to lunch at the Towers (I thought I had to defend myself by whacking him with my umbrella) Anyways, I am going to go to the interview and try to look at the school objectively assuming that I am not going to be in fear of my safety this time. By the way, how are you going to get money from other schools....you won't know if you got the scholarhip until they call you. I can just picture myself calling Penn and say, " I might get a scholarships, so, how about you give me a full ride as well." LOL. Anyways, see you there!
