40 Acres finalists notified tomorrow!

<p>Nervously hoping for some good news for D. Anyone else?</p>

<p>I’m anxiously awaiting news too. It’s a long shot, but here’s to hoping.</p>

<p>Yes, it’s so competitive that it’s a long shot for most people, I think. But here’s hoping anyway!</p>

<p>I heard they will be making phone calls tonight to the finalists and if anyone doesn’t accept or is no longer interested, will contact alternates. Everyone else will get an email in the next few days letting them know the finalists have been chosen.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Has anyone gotten a call yet? Or know around what time they’re supposed to call? This open ended, ambiguous “meeting” thing is killing me!</p>

<p>Not yet. Patiently waiting. Has anyone received a call yet?</p>

<p>Nothing here. I’m beginning to think I didn’t get selected. Funny no one on CC has heard yet either. :(</p>

<p>Surely someone will post here if they get a call. Please? :)</p>

<p>It’s after 10 p.m. here in TN. My son still has not heard anything.</p>

<p>^ Good for you! No call here, sadly. D has been offered basically full rides to U of Arizona, U of New Mexico, Iowa State and UT Dallas (or maybe it was UNT, can’t remember at the moment). Southwestern has also been generous. She really wants to be part of the BHP, and was thrilled to be accepted, but without significant scholarship money, it just isn’t going to happen. Hopefully something will come through.</p>

<p>Good luck at your interview!</p>

<p>I’ve been anxiously waiting all night. I suppose at this point I can assume I didn’t get the scholarship. Does anyone know of anyone who got a phone call?</p>

<p>Hmm…the person who got the call deleted their post! Ah well. I am assuming at this point I didn’t get it, although it seems odd that no one else has either. I suppose there is still a chance they didn’t call everyone due to lateness.</p>

<p>no call here either. I’m assuming no one would want the burden of calling to tell someone they didn’t qualify as a finalist, so I guess e-mails will be going out?</p>

<p>According to my understanding, they were only calling finalists. But still, I find it a little odd that no one has gotten a call. Or maybe it’s just that no one who got a call posts on CC… Who knows.</p>

<p>I received a phone call Friday night! SO EXCITED!
960 applicants. 45 will be going in for Finalist weekend.
They will be providing more details to me shortly…
Phone call came after 10:00 p.m.</p>

<p>Also we need to let them know by Tuesday so the spot can be opened up to someone else.</p>

<p>Is anyone familiar with what they do on finalists weekend? Interviews? What are they looking for in the finalists?</p>

<p>ah. congrats.
did she indicate whether everyone had been called?</p>


<p>Sounds like they will be calling throughout the weekend.</p>

<p>Congratulations TXSwaggar! What an honor!</p>

<p>:) Received a call at around 5 pm</p>

<p>Judging by the five hour spread yesterday night, I think we are done here. Takeachillpill, your stats are amazing. Let us know where you finally wind up!</p>
