    I'll be applying! I have some good LOR's but my accumulative GPA is a 3.65 so i think that will hurt me. Worst thing they can say is no, so it's worth a shot!
    Why would your GPA hurt you?

    Jm976711 that is definitely a strong GPA, you should apply. I also found out it is first come/first serve to access the webinar. I will be on it tonight! Hope to get a lot of questions answered. Especially ones pertaining to entering the start/end dates for respective programs.

    Well if you figure 2000+ people applying and around 250 receiving the scholarship the average GPA for acceptance has to be way up there! And I will for sure be applying, good luck to all!

    I am applying! This would be a dream come true. The application process is long and tedious, but I'm slowly getting it all submitted. I have a 4.0 GPA and I'm a loooooow income single mom. Hoping they will give me a shot.

    They first look at efc, I think that eliminates a lot of applicants right off the bat. The paperwork is very tedious, but I have working on it on spring break this week- hoping to be done with it so I dont stress the deadline.

    What is all of this discussion about first funding preference? I'm pretty sure for this year they did away with that and it is just the 0-5500 EFC bracket now...

    From what I have read accepted applicants will hear by the end of August, those who do not get accepted the end of September. I am guessing the do no notify denials right away in case those who are accepted choose not to utilize the program.
