VMI Acceptance Question

Aug 9, 2021
So I received this email and I am not sure if it means I got accepted since it does not say in the PostView portal if I got accepted or rejected. Also the subject of the email is "Institute Scholarship". Will I be notified by mail?

Good Afternoon,

We are excited you chose to apply for admission to VMI and congratulations on your acceptance!

After reviewing your impressive academic record we would like to encourage you to apply for the Institute Scholarship Program. Institute Merit Scholars receive awards from $5,000 to the full cost of tuition and room and board per academic year. In some cases, the total award package may include other forms of financial aid, such as ROTC, athletic, or other scholarships. You can find more information at this link: https://www.vmi.edu/academics/institute-scholars/ and access the application from that site or with this direct link: https://vmi.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6PaFJK7ZbqCz6zI

Please let me know if you have any questions!
Looks like good news to me. Be sure to apply for the scholarship!
Thank you. So do you believe that they will notify me in any other way such as through the portal or by physical mail? I just want to 100% ensure that I am accepted.
You could always call admissions to verify, but it sounds like an acceptance to me. Typically, a certificate is mailed to accepted candidates which is very impressive.
The Institute Scholarship is an awesome opportunity. It can help pay for room and board if you have an ROTC scholarship for tuition. My DS is a senior. It's been a great experience.
