I just got the offer for 20K + 1st year housing at the Aston.

While I'd love to live there, I'm not sure I'm allowed since my husband is tagging along. 

Any idea if they offer housing stipends to people in my situation instead?

wow seems like gw really really likes you...

cosmo, GW assured me that married couples will receive a stipend for housing. The Aston equates to around $1,500 a month and I believe that is what the stipend will be for people in our situation.

I got the 20K + housing too. Do you think they'd extend the stipend to those with pets? Also, sent to my current address thought it's the same as my permanent.

do you know how that works exactly?

They haven't sent information on how it works yet. They assured me that it would be coming soon. I am guessing it will either be a stipend paid to me once a month or paid out in two lump sums during each semester. I will let you know as soon as I get more information.

Wasn't GW a reach for you initially?

This is awesome.  Congrats on the scholarship.

For those tracking scholarship offers, I received the 20k/first year housing stipend letter yesterday. The offer is definitely not something to easily pass up.

How's the weather in NYC? What's the popular lounge these days? 230 Fifth?

Ha! In the 24 total hours I've ever spent in NYC... THAT is the bar I went to! How funny.
