Grats on acceptances. Can I bother you for stips on UF scholly? Thanks!

Thanks! There doesn't look to be any major stipulations. If UF's tuition cost goes up or down, then my award amount will match it. Other than that, no other information was included.

Congrats on all of your acceptances! How did Georgetown and GW inform you of their decisions?

Thanks! Georgetown's decision came in a small envelope via snail mail, and GW changed my application status and one day later emailed me.

  • GW Tuition?

Congrats on your acceptances and $! Do you mind my asking where you found the info that tells you 150k scholly from GW leaves you only 12k short of full? When I look at the tuition on their site, it seems like it would leave you with approx. $18,732.

Thanks! I was actually going off of the tuition listed on this website. Guess LSN hasn't updated it.
