A poster at this site, www.*******.com, said decisions were mailed on the 23rd. Anyone heard? If you have could you list your stats and where you live?

    Hmm. I wonder when they'll put them on pioneerweb?
  • SRMom3SRMom3 Registered User Posts: 350 Member
    I didn't know they posted online. How do you access it?
  • astrixastrix Registered User Posts: 2,439 Senior Member
    http://pioneerweb.grinnell.edu (Under Services > Check admissions decision)

    They sent a username/password by email.

    I don't know if they put the decisions online as soon as they mail them tho...

    got the big one today, but less merit aid (10k) than will make enough of a dent. grinnell seems to be out.

    how much aid did the rest of you get? i'm guessing the big scholarships came with the early writes...

    Sierra, before you give up on them, you might try calling to ask them if they would match your other offers (if Grinnell is preferred above others). Can't hurt.

    GPA: 3.77 from noncompetitive public school
    Rank: 45/450 school doesn't weight grades for honors classes...this is probably what killed me
    ACT: 29
    ECs: Speech, newspaper, choir, theater, NHS
    Area: suburban MN

    Damn. I really liked Grinnell, too.

    Good luck to you all, and congrats to everyone accepted!

    Re not receiving a packet today in the mail, someone in our family noted that the Carleton acceptance received on Wednesday took a full week in the mail (we have lousy mail service on the south side of Chicago). In our neighborhood, thin letters would take 2 days on average to be sorted and delivered from the midwest, while packages usually take 5-7 days.

    So that is a good sign that we haven't heard! Right? :)

    [No wishful thinking in our household, is there?]

    sierra: definitely contact the fin aid office at grinnell. It's known for being generous.

    My friend (int'l) just recieved his by DHL. Bangkok, Thailand here! He recieved the half-tuition scholarship thingy. Where's mine? Haha... Congrats to allthat got in!

    Accepted as well, will get $ 13,530 a year that is IF I attend, which very much in doubt.
    Not very pleased with the package, just too little, was expecting sth in the $25K range. But who cares?
    Congrats to evryone else who got accepted, I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time in Grinnell, me - I'll be heading to certain college in Lewiston, Maine.
