Gates Millenium Scholarship Official Thread 2013

<p>seeing that there was none, i took liberty to create it to help each other and to centralize questions and answers.</p>

<p>Question1: my school's classes are semesters and if i differ from semester 1 and 2 how to put in academic record section?</p>

<p>Question2: it says 5 classes per year but i take 7 classes a day should i like 7 (becaue i can) even though direction says 5?</p>

<p>Thanks in advance,</p>

<p>They ask 5, meaning list 5 of the classes you are taking/have taken/will take.</p>

<p>Edit: Wait, never mind. I reread the directions, and they sound really confusing. :/</p>

<p>Hi guys, I have an urgent question. I accidentally signed my application, but didn’t mean to. Can I send it again once fully completed or will the first one be the one that counts?? I’m so nervouss</p>

<p>wait, does the application only submit if you press the submit button on the last tab?</p>

<p>I submitted my application today!</p>

<p>@senior 95 </p>

<p>signing does not mean submitting , stop stressing out unnecessarily. only pressing submit will you submit the application, hence the word submit.</p>

<p>I am so excited!!! I am just brushing up last essay now. I really shouldn’t have waited so long to finish them, but oh well. If God wants me to get it, I’ll get it. How is everyone else feeling??? I’m hyped.</p>

<p>I finally submitted everything yesterday. After countless hours of writing, editing, and revising, I feel that my essays are pretty good. I think I actually have a chance! </p>

<p>Anyways, good luck to everyone!!!</p>

<p>Submitted my application yesterday! Just waiting for my Recommender and my application will be complete!! I don’t think I’ve ever spent SOO much time on something before. I put my heart into this scholarship. I hope I win. Good luck to everyone!!! :slight_smile: Let’s keep this thread going!</p>

<p>I submitted mine yesterday also!
Good luck everyone!!

<p>I submitted mine earlier today! Good luck to everyone!</p>

<p>Does anyone know why Gates will be allowing us to do a status check? Why are we supposed to be checking, just a little confused.</p>

<p>Maybe just to make sure our application is being reviewed. I might be wrong, idk.</p>

<p>what status check? havnt been on that website since the deadline date and it failed 3 sec be4 i submitted it.</p>

<p>lol this “official” thread has less than the thread of why my gates app website doesnt work</p>

<p>I submitted my app over a month ago. I saved my essays, and have since been able to use some of them for other scholarship essays. I really think the variety of essays covers just about everything that you might be asked about. I am glad I spent so much time on them! Good luck to everyone!</p>

<p>i forgot to save those :(</p>

<p>Does anyone know the purpose of having a status check for this scholarship?</p>

<p>Have u received a conformation letter. I did on 16th as well but have not received a conformation letter through email. So worried.</p>

<p>I received the confirmation email. What did your email say?</p>

<p>I have no idea but we are about to find out tomorrow I believe. It’s the end of January finally. Then we can all look forward to March!!!</p>

<p>What schools are everyone applying to?</p>
