I am an EA candidate and applied to the College of Engineering. The extra two week wait is brutal. I am hoping for the best but engineering is one of the more competitive schools at VU. The email they sent said that applicant numbers are up! Anyone else on edge? Are there admissions numbers published that are broken down by each school within Villanova?

Hey! I applied EA for Poli Sci. Constantly refreshing this website and glad to see a villanova EA page. I wonder if they’ll release before the 29th and they were just giving themself slme buffer time. We’ll see!

Wishing you luck! @Lvs232643 It would be great if they came early but I’m not counting on it. I’ve been checking here a lot too but Villanova seems to be a pretty quiet thread. I have a ton of nervous energy!

I found my answers on the Villanova Provost website, pretty interesting. I can’t post the link but you can figure it out from here: 1.villanova.edu/villanova/provost/decision-support/student-profile.html
Just add www at the beginning.

You can choose the “First-time Full-time Undergraduate” tab for a better look at the incoming numbers. Now I’m more nervous about applying Engineering.

Merit scholarships- is it true that son needed to have applied for a specific merit scholarship, and that no automatic consideration is given for merit based aid?

There just are not very many merit scholarships available. Because I am a caucasian female the only one I could look into was the Presidential Scholarship. I had to be nominated for it and the deadline was January 1. When I first looked for scholarship info I’m pretty sure I found it on the admissions website.

Thank you. It is what t is. Best of luck to you!!

Our daughter applied for the Presidential scholarship and we don’t expect her to have a chance at it. But with a lot of digging I read that those who make it to the interview stage and don’t win it are considered for other merit aid awards. This is why we made her do it. It was hell getting the Principal of her school to nominate her in time. Her school is huge and I had to physically pop in on the asst principal to express my concerns over the nomination getting in. Nothing like waiting til hours before the deadline! It also stinks bc that application had eight short answer questions and had to be in before we even know if she was accepted. After all that I hope she gets a little merit aid but am not holding my breath.

I’m not holding my breath either! They only give 25 total. Good luck to her!

Thank you! Gosh, I had just assumed Villanova would automatically consider qualified candidates for some (lesser) merit aid, like the other schools my son has applied to. I guess too late to do anything about it now! Wishing your daughter the very best… hope she gets some$$ :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m thinking it could be the same day EA is released, which is January 29th. We have to know by January 31st, however!

Hello. I have a question/request. If your school sends out Quarter 1 grades to colleges to supplement applications, do you see anything in your application status portal showing that admissions received your “first term grades” or anything referencing grades listed in the “documents received”?

I know our school sends out grades. Half of his colleges have acknowledged receipt in his portal and the other 6 have not, including Villanova. The schools would have received his grades on or after 11/20.

Thank you for help!

I don’t think that would show up in documents received. That is the stuff that you upload. Under the “Application Checklist” tab, my mid year transcript shows as received, and it showed up really quickly. That’s what they are looking for now, the whole first semester. I would ask the your counselor, decisions out this Friday.

Three more days everyone!! Good luck!!! :smiley:
