Does submitting Part I of the app in Oct. qualify for scholarship consideration?
My D applied and was accepted this year but has decided to go elsewhere, so I doubt we'll ever see what her aid package would have been. She submitted the optional Part I of the application in October, and then completed her application in late December, after the Dec. 10 deadline for scholarship consideration. I'd thought that she'd missed the scholarship deadline, but she later got the letter saying that she wasn't being considered for one of the top two scholarships but remained in the running for others (it was only then that I recalled there'd been an early Part I of the app). I've wondered if that letter was in error, or if having filed Part I earlier in the fall had established a date of application for her that made her eligible for scholarships? Though this information won't impact her, it might be good for her younger brother to know.
