I didn't request anything in my actual application to be honest. It was only when I was accepted that I requested information about scholarships. I stressed to them that I am not eligible for several Irish scholarships because I would like to practice in the US and not return to Ireland (most scholarships make you return to Ireland for at least two years) and also that my government can't afford to give me money! I was offered $12,000, which was pretty substantial since I didn't ask for anything initially!
That's great! Congratulations! Did you decide whether are you enrolling to Duke?
