    Did anyone else get an email encouraging departmental scholarship application today? It was a general email that encouraged you to use Scholarship Universe.

    I wonder if everyone gets that. Would they really send this out to applicants that are not likely to get in? In other words, is this an admissions tell?

    Does anyone know why Purdue announces so much later than other universities for EA?

    Does Purdue announce on Social media that decisions will be released in next 24 hours, like other Universities?

    No decision have gone out yet, they were talking about the email that went out to applicants with the below in subject line:

    "Apply for eligible scholarships all in one place with ScholarshipUniverse!"

    We think almost all people who applied got this email. Could be in spam bucket.

    I would recommend she applies. It won’t hurt and her stats are very good.

    One more month until results. This is going to be a long wait.
    I hope the financial aid and merit is good at Purdue.

    Does Purdue use weighted GPA or unweighted GPA? Do they give more importance to GPA or SAT scores? What are the stats needed for Engineering?
