No fin aid decisions so far. Got an email instead saying:

"You are not required to accept our offer and submit your tuition deposits until you have received a decision on your financial aid application. The Admissions Committee is working hard to make all financial aid decisions as soon as possible, and we will notify you by email once a decision has been made on your financial aid application. This notification will contain firm deadlines for accepting the offer and submitting tuition deposits to secure your spot."

Looks like fin aid decisions will not all be made before 1 April. The ones still waiting for fin aid, do not have to accept by this date, but will given another deadline, I guess. Good luck to those still waiting!

Since some people must have declined their scholarship offers by today's deadline, some of us still waiting might hopefully hear soon about fin aid. I really hope this is gonna happen within the next few days as waiting is killing me.

I had applied for an expedited review (I genuinely regret doing that) and received a rejection within three hours. Do you guys think it is worth writing to them for a review? Or should I just cut my losses?

Hello guys, any information or advice will be much appreciated. Is it possible to request for the I-20 forms for the F-1 visa from two different schools? Will either school know that i have requested an I-20 from the two schools? Good luck to those still waiting!

I asked for an expedited review on Monday and received an admission e-mail the next day. It mentioned that no financial aid would be granted. I am going to decline the offer and head to UChicago.

Thanks a lot for the answer!

Good luck at UChicago, would have loved to go there but had to decline my offer as they didn't grant me financial aid.
