PITT CLASS OF 2023 HONORS COLLEGE/ MERIT AID

blank2019blank2019 9 replies10 threads Junior Member
To those that have been accepted to the class of 2023: wondering if anyone has received updates about the honors college yet (and merit aid, though I've heard that'll come later in the year)

good luck to everyone! (:

    I’m pretty sure they start reviewing in November. You’ll have a decision by December 15th

    That is correct, they will start reviewing Pitt Honors applicants after the November 1 Priority Deadline for Honors Consideration and those who meet that November 1 deadline will hear back by December 15 at the latest.

    The Scholarship Committee starts meeting this month and they send out award letters on a rolling basis. Those who are selected for scholarships will hear back from us by March 1 at the latest.

    @hailtopitt1787 @jbreslin49 Oh ok thank you both! So can I take that to mean notification about scholarships will begin to/ have begun being sent out this month?

    @blank2019,

    A few may go out this month, but it is much more likely that they will start going out in early November!

    @hailtopitt1787 My S got admitted into Swanson last week..For consideration into Pitt Honors and Financial Aid, though he has submitted the necessary essays, would it help for him to send his resume with AP scores as well? Thanks.

    @angeltalk, He is welcome to send whatever he would like to [email protected] and request that it be added to his file. However, I will say that our office finds the responses to the Pitt Honors and Short Answer Questions combined with the information on the application totally sufficient for our review process. Our reviewers find the responses to the Short Answer Questions much more helpful than a resume because they show his personality and personal drive/interests more effectively than a list of activities. Our general rule of thumb is to recommend sending responses to those questions rather than a resume - which is what he has already done!

    Hope that helps!

    I also dance at a pre-professional ballet company for extracurriculars, as well as do science projects for 4-H and CRISPR research

    @therin778, The Pitt Honors process has changed substantially this year. This year, November 1st is the Pitt Honors Priority Consideration Deadline. Candidates who meet that deadline will be informed of their Pitt Honors admission decision on or before December 15.

    Good luck!

    My daughter received a letter in the mail today stating she’s been awarded $20,000/year scholarship. She applied to Dietrich and is hoping to be accepted into Guaranteed Medical school program.
    OOS female student: 1570 SAT, 4.0 GPA, IB Diploma student, AP and IB classes, also a ballet dancer in a company (saw someone else above is, too). She really loves Pitt.
