Did anyone apply for the Batelle or Joyce Scholarships for OSU?

    My D was notified last week that she got one of two Batelle Scholarships. They said that she gets to "stack" any $ from the Maximus as well as the $2400 annual for honors. Good luck to everyone else! Big Cam- have you heard anything??

    Wow, congratulations. I received a phone call as well, but I did not win one. I am, however, the first alternate, so if one of the two winners does not choose to attend OSU I will get the scholarship. Apparently the winners have until May 1 to accept or decline the offer. I get the impression from your post that your daughter is planning on accepting the offer, so hopefully the other winner declines (at least one of the alternates have received the scholarship every year). But if he or she does not, it is okay--I am thrilled with the other options I have before me. But it is still unfortunate that the number of scholarships they are offering is decreasing over time. Nevertheless, I feel honored to be the third choice. Congratulations to your daughter, once again! Go bucks.

    Where else did your daughter apply/is she waiting to hear from anyone?

    Hey BigCam- DD found out today that she got a full tuition scholarship at BU ( basically same deal at American)- but with room and board at @ $10000 for both of those schools, it is likely that she will go to OSU. She did win the "Elks MOst Valuable Student" for Ohio and is in the running for one of four national scholarships worth 5, 10 or 15,000 per year for 4 years. If she won that, she would seriously consider BU. Problem is, the winner of the Elks deal isn't notified till May 15???? A bit too late to allow it to enter into a school decision. Hope things work out for you. We did just get our letter from the Maximus today, were you in that one?

    BigCam- DD dream school was Georgetown--got the rejection letter today. The offers from other schools made the "Gtown turn down" easy to take.

    Yes I participated in the Maximus--did not fair too well. Still satisfied with my other opportunities though. Did she hear from anyone recently? What does she plan to do about choosing a school if she doesn't hear about the scholarship til May 15?
