So I just received an email from the scholarship department of UC Berkeley which seems deceivingly optimistically phrased. I checked on the Berkeley application status page and it says that my application is still in review.
On behalf of the faculty at UC Berkeley, I am pleased to notify you of your candidacy for the Regents and Chancellors Scholarship. This award is the most prestigious offered to entering undergraduates by Calone of the worlds premier learning and research universities."
I'm rather curious... because I recently received an acceptance to USC with accompanying scholarship opportunities similar to this, and I am unsure whether this is just another scholarship email or a sign of acceptance. My instincts tell me to doubt, but I can't help but wonder if it means anything else.
