I feel like a moron now for not submitting an essay. I know there isn't any cut-offs for the merit-based scholarships, but my application all and all seemed to fall short of those of usual Rutgers scholarship recipients. However, I now see on the Rutgers website that "while the essay is not required, all students may benefit from submitting the essay." I really hope my chances of getting into any of the above schools at Rutgers isn't hurt by my not submitting an essay.
... So what are my chances? Responses would be greatly appreciated!
