I stand corrected, you are right, those awarded will not get a new set of classes. What I mentioned was the format that was going to be used originally, and they may still implemented it for the following term. They wanted to have all the UM Scholars together in each class but that will not happen this semester. They are going to see how this Spring turns out. So what you were told was the current model that will be used for the Spring.
Hey ruis90, we're so close that by the time this post is read by some, we would have started already. I will add, that during the semester, most likely I will not be venturing in allnurses. My focus will be in studying 24/7.
Hey MDCupcake, I now understand how they were able to move your appointment to the 4th. What we went to was a preliminary interview. The real deal may come soon after. Please, let us know which you receive on the 4th? If UM representatives are there, it's the real deal.
In conclusion, I understood the final results will by next Friday. So i'm not even sure if there will time for those next batch of interviews since the only ideal day would have been on the 4th, the day b4 classes begin.
Btw, if your classes are paid for already by your own money and you will be receiving this scholarship, you have to get your schedule reversed for an unpaid extension. So the then your voucher can pay for it. If you do not do this your 1st semester will stay paid by your own funds and voucher will kick in next semester.
You may want to do that on the 4th. You can also ask that question on the 4th and they will tell you who you have to see that knows exactly what's going on and what to do so you don't have to pay out of pocket your first semester.
It will also cover books and uniforms, though I don't know what happens to those that purchased their books already. I asked the head of the bookstore and his reply was a no go. If it applies to you, ask that if possible. As for me I purchased my books from former students, at rock bottom prices. Anyways, at the end they ask if you have any questions.
Happy New Year everybody.
