  • mistaippamistaippa Registered User Posts: 285 Junior Member
    i think it said on website they notify for interviews by march 1st
  • brownjiggabrownjigga Registered User Posts: 89 Junior Member
    i was also admitted. I got an email awhile back saying that we get notification for interviews first week of march.
    Did any of you also get the Trustee's Scholarship?
  • rajpatelrajpatel Registered User Posts: 40 Junior Member
    yeah i got the trustee's. $24,000 a year. do you know how many people get that?

    Only 100 of the entire freshman class gets trustee and the selection for it became more difficult. Getting a trustee's or Full tuition scholarship is good indication that you will receive an interview for PPSP.

    so the trustee = full tuition right?
    ya i received trustee as well, my cousin last year who interviewed there said the same thing as bharat; good indication for interview
  • bharath2007bharath2007 Registered User Posts: 76 Junior Member
    Trustee's is not full tuition I think it is 1,000 dollars short of full tuition. I want to say 5-10 full tuition scholarships are given but these are given out to mostly underrepresented or underprivliged candidates. The reason I feel its a good indication is that when I entered Case selection was based on top 10% and 1500+ or 34+. However within the last two years the number of applications have ballooned for both the class and the PPSP-Medicine program so they began to look at extra-curricular accomplishments in addition to 1500+ and top 10% to determine Trustee's.

    Bharath,
    My son got admitted letter today with $19k Presidential scholarship. Do you think he will be called for interview. He doesn't 1500 SAT score but he is short of it. Do you think he will get an interview?
  • mistaippamistaippa Registered User Posts: 285 Junior Member
    just got case western letter + the Trustee's scholarship.. i had 1500 SAT so i just made the SAT req i guess :)
  • bharath2007bharath2007 Registered User Posts: 76 Junior Member
    mail4nrs: Getting Trustee's is not a guarantee of an interview and getting a presidential is not a rejection, but those with Trustee's will more likely get an interview.

    The new tuition rate for next academic year is 28,400, incresed 7.17%, compared to this year. The trustee's scholarship is 4,400 short of that.
  • buckwaldbuckwald Registered User Posts: 333 Member
    Hey, I got accepted into Case and the Trustee's scholarship also- 1510 SAT
  • T990T990 Registered User Posts: 196 Junior Member
    One note about CWRU scholarships, they remain at the same dollar level for all 4 years; they do not go up with tuition increases.

    7% increase in a year is amazing...
  • rajpatelrajpatel Registered User Posts: 40 Junior Member
    So when are we supposed to hear if we get an interview or not? It must be soon if they want to have decisions out by april...
