Congrats on Villanova! Do you know when your file went under review? I'm hoping to hear back from them soon.

Thanks!! It went under review about 2 days after I submitted, and it took about 5 weeks for them to give me a decision.

Does Syracuse have a gpa requirement for scholarship retention at that level?
