This is a bit random, but has anyone else received an email from Harvard strongly encouraging you to apply for certain external scholarships? I received an email along these lines a couple of weeks ago - the email expressly stated that the fact they were sending it to me was no indication I had or would be accepted, but I can't help wonder what it means....
@Ali22 - Please confirm this: "the email expressly stated that the fact they were sending it to me was no indication I had or would be accepted".... I never received an email from Harvard along these lines.
I can confirm it - I received the email too. Ali22 and I are both Australians and have access to a couple of external scholarships apart from the Fulbright.
In my mind it was nothing but a courtesy email.
Sim_Trom - If it is a courtesy email, then why haven't all applicants received it? All applicants have access to external scholarships. Did you apply for Financial Aid? I wonder if the email is targeted to Australians and/or Fullbright applicants only.
Sorry, I should have been more clear. The scholarships are for Australians only, so it was targeted at Aussies :). I have a financial aid application.
