Oops- I meant Finalist. Around March 8 We will be notified if we are Finalists, then around mid-April we will find out if were selected as a Gates Scholar.
Here is a link, its on the Gates Millennium Website: ::. The Gates Millennium Scholars .::
"The selection and notification processes are as follows:
February 2012, independent readers will complete an individualized reading and scoring assessment of eligible students in three major areas:
community service, and
March 2012, students will be notified and informed if they are selected as a finalist or not selected.
Finalists will be notified if they are selected as Gates Millennium Scholars or not selected by mid-April 2012. All selected Gates Scholars will be notified no later than May 1, 2012.
Thank you for your interest in the Gates Millennium Scholars Program."
And there is a direct quote.
