    oh wow! Well I got merit aid! not financial aid. Luckily it was enough...(17k) Yeah Mr Maloof is really nice. Just bug him a bit on how intereted you are in the merit aid, and Trinity as a whole. (atleast thats what I did).

    You STILL have hope! They just want to see how u stand amongst the RD pool. and if you are indeed really competitive that they must have you. Then, be sure to get as much aid as you want.

    Maddy_01.... did u submit any other form before you got your merit award? and is the merit award just based purely on eligibilty or do you have to notify them that you are intrested in their merit awards? and if you have to notify them - is it an official process or do you just e-mail Mr maloof? ...

    Maddy - if you don't mind my asking.,..what are your stats? Just trying to see if DS has a chance at merit aid...
  • maddy_01maddy_01 Registered User Posts: 873 Member
    trust me, anxious mom...It really wasnt my SAT score..lol

    Well if u still want to know,
    SAT - Math 710, CR 630, W - 640 total - 1980
    GPA - 4.9/5.0
    Percentile - Top 5%
    International (Nigerian)

    As I said, i believe it is the whole package (i.e recommendations, essays, interests, and ofcourse ur academic transcripts). Goodluck to ur DS.

    Uhm, anyone knows when Trinity sends out EA II decisions? They say by Feb 1, but I'm just too anxious to wait (anyone last year received EA II decision remembers the exact day?)
    Thanks in advance.

  • orjrorjr Registered User Posts: 430 Member
    Wondering if any of you are planning to go to the accepted student day on 3/2. Or are any current Trinity students on this board who could talk to us about what it would be like?
    Is it better to visit individually and check things out - or come on a visit day like that with a ton of other people?
  • maddy_01maddy_01 Registered User Posts: 873 Member
    Hey orjr, are you on facebook. If you are you can meet other Trinity accepted students. Alot of them are going so....

    Anyways, if you want, the url is
