Has anyone heard anything re: merit fellowships?

Typically what amount have you received? 3 digits, 4 digits, 5 digits, full?

I was checking the to do list on the Admitted Students Website last night and noticed some updates. The merit fellowship web page now indicates that decisions will be going out in February. They've also updated the student budget for next year to reflect tuition increases [LOUDLY CRYING FACE]

I think I asked the same question earlier and someone responded and then deleted their response. I believe what was said was that it takes about 4-6 weeks.

AnthonyMason, thanks for the response!

Is that about how long yours took? And how did you know when it was completed? Thanks!

I haven't gone through the process yet so my information is second hand.

That is a really quick turnaround time. I am almost at four weeks since I submitted...

I assume "completed" means everything checked out and you are good to go.

How long did it take between paying your deposit and receiving the background check notification?

They recently sent out a message saying that merit scholarships were starting to go out this week. Has anyone heard anything yet?

Yeah they actually had a question on mine. I answered it on the 18th and 3 days later got an email from CBS saying your check is successfully completed.
