heads up: priority deadline for loans is May 16.

Can you elaborate?  I totally forgot about the loan end of things, but I figured that would be organized by September.

ETA: what instrument do you play, hip?

What is the application deadline?
 Please make every effort to complete all required forms on or before the priority deadline listed below for each quarter. If you apply later, you may still be able to receive a loan however, your loan funds may not be available at the beginning of the quarter. Federal Work-Study and Perkins funds are limited and offered on a first-come first-served basis. You are strongly urged to complete your application by the priority deadline, but not later than four to six weeks prior to the date in which you need the loan funds. Especially if you are applying for federal assistance, it is important that Student Loan Administration staff members have time after receiving your FAFSA data electronically to help you resolve any unforeseen issues that may arise as a result.

Quarter Priority Deadline*
Summer 2008:  April 4, 2008
Autumn 2008 - Spring 2009:  May 16, 2008

* Please see clarification of deadline in paragraph above. Note: We will accept applications for summer work-study either until July 2, 2008, or until funds are depleted, whichever comes first.

HTH!


Ugh poo. I have been waiting on a final scholarship offer from Chicago and missed the deadline. For the older students: they say that if you turn in the apps late (I will be turning it in tomorrow) we might not get the loans on time for the first day of the quarter. Does this mean that when the deadline to pay the first bill comes in, I won't have my loans money? What is the grace period for bill payments?

Thanks in advance.

2. Where were you born?
- Born in San Francisco, grew up in the Bay Area, moved to Utah for high school.

3. Do you like to drive?

4. Favorite type of food?

- Kashi GoLean Crunch.

7. What book have you read the most times?
- Homer's Odyssey

8. Favorite TV channel?
- Either Fox Soccer Channel/GolTV or the Chicago public access station.  I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching awful rappers mug in front of a green screen.

9. Favorite movies? movies are so looong.
- Wet Hot American Summer is my favorite, but I also like David Lynch and Takashi Miike films.

10. What Hollywood star would play you in a movie about your life?

- I don't drink coffee, but I drink a whole lot of green tea.

17. Can you cook?  If so, what's your best dish?
- I'm a good recipe follower, but anything past that and I'm lost - my main goal for first year isn't anything dealing with law school, it's to get better at cooking.

Oh, these are fun when I'm bored.

1. What is your user name and why did you choose it?
-JusAbstinendi. It's a legal term that indicates an individual's right to renounce or refuse an inheritance. I chose it because I like its symbolism in a social sense; we're not bound to accept the laws, institutions, mores, etc. that are ours to receive. I find it empowering. *shrug*

2. Where were you born?
-Wyandotte, MI, which eerily reminds me of Hyde Park now that I think about it...

3. Do you like to drive?
-I view cars as tools. So I guess I like driving as much as I like using a hammer.

4. Favorite type of food?
-Is beer a food? Seriously, though, Mexican food. Spicy Italian dishes are a great second.

5. Favorite beverage?
-Either black coffee (it must be black or it's not coffee) or Two Hearted Ale by Bells, the king of brewers in Michigan.

6. If you could only eat one kind of cereal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
-Walmart Raisin Bran. Seriously, Sam Walton knows how to make one hell of a raisin bran.

7. What book have you read the most times?
-I've only read a handful of books more than once. 1984?

8. Favorite TV channel?
-Not a big TV watcher. I guess the History Channel, though most of the programming is terrible.

9. Favorite movies?
-I'll have to say Alien. Damn, I wish they still made horrifying sci-fi movies that weren't CGI-reliant.

10. What Hollywood star would play you in a movie about your life?
-Matt Damon? I might just go with Depp, because he's such an impressive character actor.

11. Which single store would you choose to max out your credit cards?
-There was this neat little used book store near my undergrad campus. I could probably buy the place if I were to max out my cards. I wooooullldd choose Borders/Barnes & Nobles, but even with $30,000 in credit, I'd only be able to afford roughly 16 books.  ;)

12. Are you willing to sing karaoke with me?
-No. I'm not a cruel person.

13. What is your dream vacation?
-Süd Tirol, which is a lush mountain province wedged in between Italy, Austria, and Switzerland. The sort of place that makes you believe in Eden.

14. What is your favorite article of clothing?
-This makes me think of my beloved white RL polo, now gone after many years of loyal service. ;[

15. What is your favorite song playing on the radio right now?
-Mainstream? Not a clue.

16. Do you need coffee in the morning to be a tolerable human being?
-"Need" is such a strong word. Let's just say I'd be a lesser man without coffee.

17. Can you cook?  If so, what's your best dish?
-Absolutely not. It's hilarious/sad how little I know about cooking.

18. What is your favorite sports team?  What sports team do you hate the most?
-You could take every single team in the world and combine them, but that combination still wouldn't compare to the Red Wings. Sorry, Blackhawks, but I'll be wearing red & white to your games.

19: What is your favorite board game?
-Stratego or Clue.

20: How excited are you to have fun die?
-For me, fun never really lived, and thus how can it truly die? That was profound, man, so profound.

I love Indian food.  This is good news.  If I could, I wouldn't eat any bread but naan.
I don't remember if there was any good subcontinent food in Hyde Park itself?

Nope, there isn't.

I will say this for Rajun Kajun. The grease works great for soaking up alcohol, if you are nursing a nasty hangover. Not that I am speaking from personal experience.

1. What is your user name and why did you choose it?
No mystery.  It's descriptive.

Can't drive.  Neither can my wife.  We're an odd couple.

Italian.  Definitely includes pizza.

5. Favorite beverage?
Right now, Coke Zero.  But it goes in cycles.

Cheerios.  They're addicting for little toasted oats.

7. What book have you read the most times?
I've re-read the Wheel of Time series from scratch every time a new book came out.  I've been doing it since book 1.  Now the author, Robert Jordan, died before finishing the 12th and final book.  Yep.

No idea.

16. Do you need coffee in the morning to be a tolerable human being?
What is a 'morning'?  I've been a grad student for too long.

I once microwaved a cup of soup.  The soup was good, but I had to spend a half hour cleaning the explosion in the microwave.

18. What is your favorite sports team?  What sports team do you hate the most?
No idea.

Don't know.  Monopoly?

Amazon.com

That's simultaneously the best AND the worst answer.  The best because you can legitimately buy anything there and the worst because that fact says absolutely nothing about you, haha.  I mean, you can buy this there.
