Thanks MocaPoca - that's super helpful!! I'm still waiting for my contract to be countersigned but it's really helpful to know that stuff for once I get my welcome packet.
Another observation -- my program doesn't start until Sept. 29th. I wonder if that has something to do with my hearing back so late? who knows.. maybe they aren't done giving out awards. Just throwing out it out there again (in case future applicants are reading this forum) I am an incoming master's PMHNP student and did not get my finalist email until Sept. 18. Anything can happen!!!!
My last name starts with J and I'm starting a master's psych NP program. I honestly don't think last name or program type has anything to do with it. I'm not sure why I got it so late!!! But it goes to show that you really never know what will happen up until the deadline.
I am in total shock - I got a phone call and the initial congratulations email today. I just submitted the W4, verification, and banking info - they are due on 9/19 for me. I must be one of the last people notified. I can't believe what an incredible award this is!!!
Same here... credit checked on 29th and nothing else yet... I'm trying to accept that I won't get it, and then if I do, it will be a very pleasant surprise. If I don't, I will reapply next year and life goes on!
Thanks Marina for trying to calm our nerves!! My credit is excellent so I don't think it should prevent them from awarding me. I'm just hoping I'm close enough to the top of the list to get offered. It sounds like it's being done in a rolling fashion so I'll try not to freak out til the end of the week.
Argh. I have been scouring past years' forums trying to figure out the likelihood of acceptance after getting a credit check. I really hope this week (hopefully tomorrow) brings news at least to someone, to show that they are starting to let finalists know.
