    Hey, long time reader first time poster.

    I just applied for the WWDC scholarship and was wondering if anyone knows the approximate number or probability of getting in?

    Just nervous and impatient, I'm in Ohio so its a big deal to fly out an all.

    Thanks all.

    I just sent my application in yesterday.
    According to the rules page 400 Scholarships will be awarded. Good luck to you! Hopefully we both get in.

    One of my uncles works for Southwest Airlines, so I'm probably getting free airfair from him. Then my other uncle lives a few blocks from Moscone, so I'm staying with him.:D

    I was hoping for an in person presentation by Steve with like a plaque, food, and the president of my university. A write up in the ACM journal wouldn't hurt either. Its only 12:47, there's still hope.

    I should just turn off Mail, the mystery would be better than the repeated disappointment.

    I'd hate to sound pessimistic here, but what if none of us received it? How would we know? They're only going to email the recipients of the scholarship, correct?

    Well on the developer.apple.com/students site, it says
    That makes it sound like all entrants will be notified

    Turns out Steve got his hands on the applications this year, he found every single resume either sub par or just so poorly designed that he denied everyone. Guess there's always next year.
