    does case give full ride scholarships to waitlisted applicants who are accepted? I'm debating whether I should accept my spot on the waitlist and will only go there if i get a full ride scholarship otherwise its umich in state tuition.

    @pgh123 and @chel17 Thanks, I appreciate the support. I guess I just feel bad when people who are clearly qualified don't get into a certain school.

    @Eeeee127 I'm guessing that if someone was qualified for a full ride scholarship they would have been directly accepted rather than waitlisted.

    @willz99 i heard case western waitlists a ton of overqualified students who don't show a lot of demonstrated interest to keep their yield rates up. they don't want to accept an overqualified student just to have them go somewhere else.

    Waitlisted. I don't even know what to hope for. I have only one school remaining.

    My daughter was accepted - she’s very happy! $29,500 merit scholarship. 35 ACT, 95.5 GPA, 10 APs.

    We can’t seem to find the major listed anywhere... her first choice was biomedical, but not sure what she was accepted into. Are we missing it somewhere?

    Congrats to all accepted! I know all of you, whether accepted at Case or not, will do great wherever you end up.

    Congrats to those who were accepted and good luck to anyone going on the waitlist!! Don't worry if you did not get accepted because I'm sure you have other great options and will have fun anywhere you go to.

    waitlisted. 33 ACT, good ECs, essays, recs... disappointed is an understatement. Been quite the crappy day as I was rejected to NU as well
  • sarah2499sarah2499 Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
    @sciencegirl20 In the same position. Declined from 4 schools today alone. :( Good luck wherever you end up, you are certainly qualified!

    Accepted. International student
    They have this on my fin aid letter
    "Aid Duration

    The financial aid outlined in your package is for one academic year. With the exception of university-provided scholarships, you must apply each academic year to receive financial aid. The retention criteria for university-provided scholarships are outlined in the General Bulletin."

    I got 25k CWRU Grant. Does that count as University-provides scholarship or I have to apply for aid again next year?

    Thank u

    @pinkmee Grants must be reapplied for each year, but it's pretty safe to say you'll get the same amount unless your family goes through a significant financial change

    I like how CWRU gives that special 'P.S.'' message. :D
