    Can I submit it on the actual day of the 4th, or is it due at midnight on the night of the 3rd?

    Due on February 4th. You probably have until midnight on the 4th (Monday night) but you may want to call the L&S Scholarship office/coordinator and ask.

    Well, I procrastinated and didn't send it in until this evening. I think I was okay though, seeing as the application wasn't closed or anything. Do you know when we'll start to hear back about the different scholarships?

    Scholarship winners receive personal phone calls in April.

    Emails are sent sometime in April to the rest of the applicants.

    There are about 60 scholarships total and only a few of those are for non-Wisconsin residents. Over 1,000 incoming freshmen complete the application annually.

    What are your Stats?

    Best of luck to you!

    Oh, yikes. I didn't realize that the out of state kids were at such a disadvantage.
    My stats:
    4.0UW/4.48W GPA
    33 ACT
    OOS
    Only decent EC's (club memberships but no leadership positions, sports teams that I didn't stick with, a good amount of volunteer hours)
    Pretty good essays, hopefully good teacher recs
