    Does anyone know if notification is through the mail or through the portal?

    Two years ago, my daughter was invited to attend and received her notification by mail.

    My question was not regarding my D's admissions to Emory. She applied RD so if she wasn't a candidate for the Scholars program, she would go into the RD pool. I wanted to know if Emory would notify her if she wasn't considered for the Scholars program but thanks, you seemed to clear it up.

    Did anyone hear how the Oxford Scholars weekend went?

    I attended the weekend and it was great. I really learned a lot about Oxford and met a bunch of awesome current students and scholars.

    Great to hear! Do you know when you will hear back about the amount of scholarship money? How many seniors were invited? How were the interviews? My daughter is going for Emory Scholars.

    They said we will hear back in mid to late March. 85 seniors were invited and I believe that 66 attended. The individual interview was fine. There were no set questions, the interviewer just adjusted as the conversation flowed. The group interview was a bit intimidating. They asked a general and debatable question (What is cultural diversity and why is it important?) and just let us voice our opinions. There were about 13 students and it lasted for about 1 and a half hours. It felt long!

    Good luck to your daughter!
