The admissions office said that $$$$$ offers were set to go out this week (03-01-06), so I was wondering if anyone has recieved an offer?

I got that email as well.... The only problem I have is that both other schools i am considering want decisions by April 1st. I am picturing a scenario in my head where i get some massive scholarship from Case but already made deposits elsewhere. I know I could withdraw the seat deposit (but not have them refunded), but i'd rather not have too (seems unethical to me). Okay, enough venting for now. Thanks for the responses thus far.

I also have not yet heard anything, though I received a Case t-shirt the other day. FYI, the daily news in Cleveland recently has been reporting on Case's severe finanical troubles; today, the faculty passed a vote of no-confidence for the president. I am thinking this may not be a good sign in terms of financial aid. But what a nice t-shirt!

And where the hell is my t-shirt? Shouldn't a school in Cleveland, of all places, go out of their way to be helpful?  This is like the ugly girl playing hard to get.

I recieved a partial scholarship offer/notification by email this past Thursday (March 2). There's still plenty of time for them to get those letters and emails out.

I did however find this tidbit from the email interesting:

"Please know that this is the most competitive year ever for applicants in our 110-year history.  As a result, competition for our scholarships is extremely intense this year."

I, too, got the t-shirt.  Also got an invite to a food/drink related function at a near-to-campus jazz club.  $5/all you can eat/drink for soul-food and Jazz last night.

What I really want is some $$$ on the table.
