I just got my acceptance letter today and I was accepted. Did you get in? Still waiting to find out if I am getting a scholarship.....

Yes, I did get in. I got a scholarship of $15,000 a year. I am unsure if I will attend as that is less than half the cost of tuition as I am an out of state applicant. Did you get any scholarship info?

Yeah same thing here. They gave me 16k/year...to be honest, I was waiting for something more than that. I am also unsure if I should take the offer since I’m gonna need at least 10k in loans just to cover the whole tuition. But I will be attending their preview event on the 5th, just to get a feel of the campus and hopefully that will help me decide.

So you are in-state then? I did read somewhere on here that they sometimes have a second round of scholarship offers, but there are no guarantees. I will possibly be deferring for a year, but it is not very likely. I am just unsure if GSPIA is worth an additional 60k in loans. Are you attending the VIP luncheon?

Yes I am.....they’re paying for everything so I might as well seize the opportunity to discover more about the place. You should come too, maybe that will help change your mind you never know...

MID with a focus in Urban and Regional Affairs. I got news today of a full funding offer + stipend.

Oh great congrats!!! I haven’t heard anything about any more fundings yet. Do you know of anyone else receiving the full funding?

No, I haven't heard of anyone else. Mine was last minute, I think someone else was awarded the scholarship and declined the offer. Also, it was specific to my major.
