    Do they tell you if your rejected or do they just notify semifinalists?

    They do not send a rejection because you don't actually apply for it. All applicants are considered for the scholarship.

    My daughter received the semifinalist email today. At least 1 batch of emails has gone out. She has 2 weeks to send in her materials.

    @ladyengineer2012 what were her stats? And congratulations!
  • Ladyengineer2012Ladyengineer2012 Registered User Posts: 69 Junior Member

    Her stats are:
    ACT : 36
    GPA : 4.0 UW

    She was very excited because she was deferred by Georgetown today. Go figure....

    Ladyengineer2012, Was your daughter Early Decision or Regular Decision?
  • Ladyengineer2012Ladyengineer2012 Registered User Posts: 69 Junior Member
    She applied RD and submitted her application around 11/21.

    Want to encourage nervous seniors to be patient. It might take the admissions office a little more time to find those outstanding applicants to send the semifinalist email to. Good test scores are easy to flag. Amazing essays and/or ECs take more work to find but are just as valid in selecting Richmond Scholars semifinalists.

    A lot of you will be selected because you are amazing students and citizens. Keep checking your email box and be prepared to send in your materials when required to do so.

    You need to submit a junior or senior year paper for Boatwright.
    You need supplementary arts materials for Artist. (can be found on admissions website)
    You need to write an essay for Oldham (community service).
    You need to discuss your science research project for Science.

    Good luck to all of you.

    My middle daughter was notified yesterday that she is a semi-finalist. She submitted her application in late November. Her older sister is a Richmond Science scholar, loves UR (so do we!), and is doing very well there.

    Got notification for semi-finalist. Application submitted on 12/05.

    Hi, I was notified that I was a semi-finalist on the 20th. Does anyone know how exactly we are supposed to send in the required materials for our designations?
  • DisneydadDisneydad Registered User Posts: 348 Member
    Would love to know stats of all those who were chosen.

    I received my semi-finalist notification on the 20th and I submitted all my materials a few days ago! I am very excited for the opportunity. I applied to Oldham and Boatwright. How about you guys?

    Could anyone tell us the last date of notification for short listing Internationals ? I'm a bit worried now - still no news.
