The waiting is so hard. I would say they were pretty true to their word on the acceptance notifications by phone. The email came about a week later but the official letter took about 4 weeks. The videolink was up on the portal within a few days.  Scholarship videos were due March 1 for everyone last year and notifications were anticipated 2 weeks later but it was actually 5 weeks (we were on Spring Break when my DS heard.) Since Ms Lowe calls everyone , it takes awhile for her to make all the calls. She did update by email twice at the end of March that there were delays.

Can someone that has gone to UA without a scholarship message me. I just have a few questions.

Please, we need to share as much information as possible.  It is also against Board rules for an Adult or a Parent to contact a young dancer member other than via the open Board. :)

Current UA students are in the process of renewing their scholarships - applications are due by April 2 5pm. I remember during orientation we were told money available depends on who graduates or leaves and then they know how much can be awarded around to the returning or newly admitted students. Hope that helps.

Sheahuang this does help. I assume this means my DD will not hear from potential scholarships until mid april. Cutting it close.

lizzyhults1 - Happy to help! I'll pass along any updates I encounter.

My son received his scholarship call at the end of the first week of April (I recall we were on Spring Break.)

FYI... my husband contacted the school asking if dance merit scholarships have been distributed. They replied today that they are still deliberating and won’t have an answer until May...

Yikes! That's incredibly late - we are also waiting for our renewals too.

That could explain part of the delay for the incoming Freshmen...

Thats great :) Our DD made a decision and went a different direction. I just wanted everyone to know that some offers are slowly going out. :)

Has anyone heard from Arizona's Sept. 22nd audition?  My DD auditioned at that time and we were told we would hear back in 2-3 weeks (it's been exactly 3 weeks).  She is attending the Jazz Showcase next weekend and we need to know if she should audition again since U of A does give you an opportunity to audition twice.  Any thoughts or recommendations are greatly appreciated!!

This is just my two cents. If your DD is needing to do a second audition, I would not suggest the jazz showcase. There is a lot of people and they had an option to do the combos once is all. My suggestion is that if this is top on her list, then attend one of the other auditions.

We were also there and haven't heard anything yet :)  My DD sent her video in a week after the audition.  She received a yes from the university but just like yours, is waiting.   I remember hearing the earliest we would here is Mid October...which I guess is now...fingers crossed and good luck!
