I was late, I had no idea, forgive me

<p>I applied on January 30th thinking UPitt was rolling. I had no idea that full tuition sholarships were being given out if you applied before January 15! I am in the top 8% of my class, and got a 1490 on my SATs. If I contacted them, do you think they will consider?</p>

<p>Why not? You have nothing to lose. If there's money left in the budget, maybe you'll get some! Good luck.</p>

<p>I think they would. I always got the feeling that Pitt more liberally gave out scholarships to out of state students.</p>

<p>I agree with both of the above posts.</p>

<p>Yeah, do it anyway. Try calling up Honors college and talk to Dr. Stewart, he might be able to help you.</p>

<p>About</a> the Dean</p>

<p>You should definitely contact them but I had a friend who applied late like you and had very good credentials and this is precisely the reason he did not receive scholarships. They will want to know why you waited so long to apply and why you deserve the scholarship over someone who applied earlier.</p>

<p>My son applied pretty late two years ago, and I recall we missed the deadline you mention. He nevertheless got a full tuition scholarship and is attending Pitt now. We are from out of state, and he had top-notch SATs (1580), and I believe both of those facts were probably relevant.</p>

<p>Good luck.</p>

<p>Thanks for the help guys</p>

<p>I called and emailed and they said because of the time I was not eligible. There is not anything else I can do right?</p>

<p>Probably not... I'm sorry you missed the deadline. I guess your only option is to apply for a lot of local scholarships and to look for a job that will pay you more than minimum wage =)</p>
