Did you guys who just heard about acceptance apply test optional?

Yes, my daughter did.

Gotcha, my daughter applied on 10/18 but sent test scores in. we haven’t heard anything yet.

I applied with scores! Since it’s rolling, the time to hear back can really depend. I wouldn’t stress :slight_smile:

Where in the portal do you see the decision response? Mine just has all green check marks and I don’t see where an admission decision would be located.

It’ll just pop up at the bottom of the page with the letter saying Congratulations, You’ve Been Admitted! There isn’t anything to click or anything to take you to another page.

I was told there is no automatic merit if you didn’t submit SAT scores…otherwise you need to wait until Jan/feb to hear if you receive any other scholarship $$

So sorry. I thought I responded. It took about two weeks to hear back. It was fast.

Our son just got admitted to UA! Applied October 22nd.

Where do you see how much scholarship money was given? Do you need to create a MyBama account? My acceptance is in my freshman portal but it then says to create a Mybama account. This is a safety school for me but curious about merit.

Good questions…but I am not sure exactly how to answer them. Right now Alabama is a safety for my D22 as well. Although she is thankful to be admitted and is eligible for merit according to Alabama’s website, she has not confirmed exactly how much.

Did she create a MyBama account?

Not yet…that will be on the “to do” list for this weekend.

We received a letter in the mail in September letting us know about the merit amount. We have not seen it on the Mybama site.
