Hey everyone, I thought that since we will be having some high quality bonding during scholarship weekend that we get some familiarity right now--and where better than college confidential?!
First off, Congratulations to everyone who was selected and condolences to all who were not successful. I myself was not accepted into the Medical Scholars Program, so I empathize and will besiege the financial aid office with medieval weaponry with you if you want.
Second off, why not post some background information on yourself and get this party started!
we'll be contacting you guys hopefully in a few days to let you know who you're staying with! unfortunately, we're not allowed to tell you yet, but we just paired everyone up yesterday. Please dont freak out if 3 days go by and you havent gotten emailed yet or friended on facebook-- its only an estimate haha.
I wouldn't think too hard on why you were rejected. With the number of applicants so high, it's very difficult to say exactly why it is that someone got in while another didn't. I believe they've told us (I'm a current Danforth Scholar) that on a different day it could have been an entirely different group of students selected.
