  1. Has anyone filled out the merit aid negotiation form? What do y’all think is a reasonable bump to request?
  2. My personal conspiracy theory is that they pull merit funding from the Colombian college’s budget, not from the Trachtenberg school’s own budget, and they got decisions ready so late that there was basically no money left in CCAS. This is not at all substantiated, just my theory.
  3. I've also just declined my offer. Good luck everybody!
  4. For all those that applied at Duke, can I ask why you chose the Nicholas school over their Sanford school? I've been accepted to both with very similar offers and I'm having trouble deciding between the two. I know I don't want to do a dual degree program (I don't think it will be cost effective or worth the extra year). Any advice out there?
  5. And some of us STILL have not heard back! I applied at SEAS for Sustainable Systems and haven't heard a peep in weeks. I've got no clue what is going on.
  6. I also just got in to the MPP program with no fellowships/assistantships.
  7. I'm still waiting I'm late in the alphabet and I turned my application in like three days before the due date.
  8. Im assuming this is going out in alphabetical order. Any early letter names still waiting?
  9. Congrats! Did they have anything on the portal about funding or do you think that'll be in an email later? Mine still doesn't have any MPP updates, but glad they're FINALLY rolling these out. We've also started a GW MPP forum here if anyone was looking for one.
  10. I also applied by the Feb 1 deadline. The GW Colombian College of Arts and Sciences has their admitted students events starting in late March with the first being March 25. I know that’s not Trachtenberg specific, but I can’t imagine results coming out later than the college beginning admitted student events.
  11. I'm really hoping today is the day, but if they're actually going by the 4-6 week email they sent out a while back, 4 weeks will be this upcoming Tuesday.
  12. "We are pleased to offer you a Sanford MPP tuition fellowship in the amount of $37,500, which will be disbursed in equal installments each semester in which Sanford is your home institution/school and you are in good academic standing." It's smaller than this one, so I think this is the main thread. .
  13. Hi guys, I figured these decisions would be coming out soon and that we might want to start a thread. Anybody have news yet? I haven't heard anything since they emailed me Feb 16th saying my application was officially under review and they'd get back to me in 4-6 weeks (currently in week 3).
  14. For everyone out there with a funding offer, I got 37.5k but it says "which will be disbursed in equal installments each semester in which Sanford is your home institution/school and you are in good academic standing" are y'all interpreting that as per year or for the entire two years? I read it as for all four semester of the program so each semester being a little over 9k, but on the other Sanford thread it seems like people are interpreting the offer as a per year thing.
  15. Okay I got 37.5k but it says "which will be disbursed in equal installments each semester in which Sanford is your home institution/school and you are in good academic standing" are y'all interpreting that as per year or for the entire two years? I read it as for all four semester of the program so each semester being a little over 9k. Am I misinterpreting?
  16. Does anyone know how negotiation works? I got 18k/year but I've got a couple new publications coming out soon and I'm hoping to negotiate up a little. I don't want to accidentally come across as super rude.
  17. I also just got my admission and offer. Mine only offers aid for the first year. Is that the case for others? Also what is the percentage equivalent of each number of dollar signs?
  18. Oops, totally got too excited and missed that, thanks! Congrats to you too!
  19. In at Georgetown! No info about aid? Anybody get anything?
  20. Thank you!!! They called at like 8:30 my time, so I was a little shocked to get a call that late lol
  21. I just got my call about an hour ago, so I think it’d be totally okay to call back tomorrow! I got in, and I doubt they’d call to give you a rejection.
  22. Just got the call that I’m in at Sanford, admissions member said merit and financial aid info will be sent this upcoming week!
  23. I applied for the Dec 15th deadline (earlier in this thread I accidentally said Jan 15th, which was Ford's deadline) and I haven't heard a peep. I applied in sustainable systems. I suppose it's possible they are waiting to admit/reject me until Ford has made its decision since I applied to their dual degree program, but I'm not sure.
  24. I'm still waiting from SEAS! Anybody else in the same boat? I'm on the verge of calling to confirm they know I exist lol.
  25. Anybody hear funding info yet? I was admitted to the MPA-MSES program last week, but haven't heard anything about funding.
