    Hi, I just received 3 four year scholarships to my top, and only, three schools and I was wondering when the winner letter will arrive. I'm also bewildered in regards to if I have 30 days to accept as of now or when my letter arrives. Thank you.

    What board did you apply for the oct or Jan board and if you don’t mind what were your stats?

    When my daughter received her “winner letter” in the mail (and via an email) her deadline corresponded to 30 Days from the date her status changed to “winner” online.

    So I suppose the answer for her experience is that once the status is listed as winner, she was on the 30 day clock.

    You’ll have plenty of time to decide...I’m sure you didn’t wait to visit your schools and have a pretty good idea of where you want to go prior to the board. Your offer letter will probably be posted to your application website if you can’t wait for the mailman.

    My DS was a first board winner in Oct It only took a few days for the letter to upload into his portal, then maybe a week to 10 days to arrive in the mail. The 30 days to respond was from the date the portal first updated to winner.

    When my son was awarded a scholarship a couple of years ago, it took about 7 to 10 days for the letter to arrive.

    DD was informed of scholarship award last Wed, USPS delivered Priority package this morning, so it was quick. I was expecting a letter, but I think there must be some sort of "award folder" or something in there, it is pretty thick. Now, I have to wait for her to get home tonight and accept it!!!
