I already got in, so I have no reason to get excited, but what does it say? The finaid people have received and are considering your forms, or the finaid people are determining your award, or you qualify for this scholarship, or what?

I got one too. I guess it was sent to everyone (although it would be better if it meant we were all accepted!!) I have quite a few forms i've gotta get copied, signed and sent out before the 11th. Better get to it then.
GO FOR IT!! It really can't hurt. I relooked at mine stuff wondering if filling and sending it all out would be a bear.... but it doesn't look to bad. It's just a Federal Verification sheet and then my mom's signed taxes (which i have a few copies of) so it won't be too bad. They say they need my dad's stuff too.... but I already sent them a letter asking for the non-custodial stuff to be waived and so I have to give them a call and see what the verdict is on that. Anyways... can you guys believe in less than a month, we'll all know if we're in??? Scary thought....
