Got 2 questions

1) Have the portal been updated for those who are admitted? Over the phone they said that they will update the portal and send an e-mail right after the call, but I havent received any
2) When is the scholarship decision deadline and how do they communicate about decisions?

My portal was updated right after the call, but I also didn't receive any email. But to me she didn't say I would receive an email, she just said I could see her email address in the portal and that she would be my contact point, so I could email her anytime I needed it.
The portal update is very simple. Below the "you will be considered for round 1", there's a sentence stating new updates were posted and there's a link for the acceptance letter.

No such thing for me. Start wondering whether i imagined that call for myself, but apparently it took place - will be figuring it out with adcom as soon as their buiness day starts.

Have you had any info about the scholarship?

No info about scholarships. But someone at clear admit said he/she was informed about the scholarships during the call.
At the portal you can see the scholarships you applied to (the merit one is automatic), and there's the amount awarded. For me everything is blank. If they really updated that page, I guess I didn't get any scholarship (which kind of surprises me, honestly).

Let's wait to see if anyone else has information about this scholarship topic.

Talked with adcom on my problem with portal update (they fixed that). Also asked about funding - looks like if you havent been told that you received money that means you got 0 from need-based grant

If I recall correctly what they said (I may have misunderstood something) only ~5% of admits get need-based grant (so probably if you are from US/Europe your chances are slim). Assume you need to earn less that ~30-35k/y per household to be eligible for that.

Then appears the question - from common knowledge (forums, talks, etc) around 50% of MBA applicants for top schools usually get some sort of funding - where do the remaining 45% get their support?
Are these all the special scholarships listed in Haas scholarship section (e.g. brian maxwell) or there is some other source?

:(

I see only few extra scholarships there.. It doesn't seem to have enough for all 50% of the students... maybe there's something I'm missing..

At the letter there's a link to the scholarship portal. There you can see the types of scholarship you run and the amount you were awarded (in my case everything is blank, but your should show some value)

I did receive a scholarship. And from what I was told from admissions, that info will be posted tomorrow. If you were told that you received money, it will show up tomorrow.

Looks like nothing.

Do I understand right, that you are automatically based on application considred for merit-based scholarships?

And if you haven't recieved money means they all rejected you?

I mean the ones on the left in the attached screenshot
