Title: Financial Aid Board?
Post by: maricutie on March 03, 2005, 09:08:42 AM
Maybe it would be a good idea to have a separate Financial Aid/Scholarship/$$ board? Maybe make it a child board under "decided students" or something ...

Just a suggestion.

I am with you on that. It would be nice to have a dedicated space for financial aid info, rather than spread around the accepted and deciding where... boards.

I'm going to move this thread to the Site Suggestions board, so hopefully Andrew will be more likely to see it.

i completely agree.  financial aid is what i'm most interested in hearing about right now, and sifting through all the other info to find it is a lot of work.

So where would this board go?
Title: Re: Financial Aid Board?
Post by: InVinoVeritas on March 22, 2005, 05:46:44 PM
maybe as a sub board of the "deciding where to go" board?

Yes this is a board that we definately need. One of the main reasons I haven't posted on this board in a loooooooooonnnnnng time is that it offers nothing for me now that I've decided on a school. (and way too many people on this board could give a darn about actually helping people, and instead only try to brag about where they've been accepted, and try to put others down, anyway.....) I've been trying to find outside scholarship sources on the web, but that is ridiculous. I believe the board should go under either law school applications or in the decided and accepted students section. So bring it on Andrew!!!!!!!!!! ;D

I think either in the "deciding where to go" board or as part of the "Accepted and deciding 1Ls" board. If it were concerning mainly financial offers already made, I would go with the "accepted and deciding..." board. If the board is for general financial aid info, then it should be a part of the "deciding where to go" board.

Yeah, I'd have to vote for the "deciding where to go," because, for some of us, that decision is going to depend to a great degree on money offers.

I think it would be great to have a financial aid board under "where should I go next fall" as that is part of the decision equation.

But wherever it would be, it would just be nice to have one.

I added this in the "accepted and decided" section because it seemed like there was room there, and because the applications usually come after the admissions applications.
