anybody have an idea on cingular reception at the law school? (sorry if this has been done before, i know certain carriers were asked about at some point).. i googled a bit and there were some articles about how poor cingular reception is at harvard (including articles as recent as october 2005).. i would really like to go with cingular for personal reasons but if it's going to be very bad it would be good to know. .. any thoughts?

he lives pretty far away (about 3 hrs flight). maybe we can manage another time but he has a really crazy semester ahead of him and no days off the entire semester + work (already taking off labor day weekend for this). his winter break ends right before our finals begin, so again it's going to be a bit tricky, although i'm definitely going to see him in Dec or Jan. neither of us really have money to be flying in and out for short visits either =/. i guess it'll depend on how many sacrifices we can make and how patient we can be .. something we're already getting plenty of practice on atm. just hoping to survive 1L in many more ways than one- i recently had lunch with a few HLS 2Ls that told me it was the worst year of their lives- doesn't sound pretty.

been reading a bit on xoxo and such im guessing orientation isn't that crucial .. i'll probably skip most of everything after friday morning.

hmm how intensive is orientation going to be, does anyone know? and i think i read that it is either the thursday or the friday before labor day weekend.. does that mean we get randomly assigned (based on section?) to a day, and the other day is free? and how important is participation in every single event (such as boston/cambridge tours)? my boyfriend is going to be visiting that friday through monday and it'll probably be the only time we can make for each other before winter break (when probably i'll be a stressed out mess based on other people's accounts due to finals) .. i wish we had more info on this stuff :/

yeah, i'm not too worried about the medical records, and these replies helped. i figured they weren't ACTUALLY going to NOT LET ME COME TO SCHOOL because my records were a few days late =) wish they accepted fax tho haha

uh..wait..what are Grad PLUS loans for? What component of the financial aid package (e.g. "Unsubsidized HLS loan") does it correspond to, or is it an additional loan you take out if you want more money than what HLS budgeted for you?

hmm.. well it's a substitute for private loans really, so whatever you need beyond federal stafford/perkins loans can be covered by gradplus as necessary, as i understand it. having no credit i think it's probably my best option, and the fixed interest rate is a bit more reassuring even if it is higher atm.

MEFA looked the best to me for sure.  They give you the incentives as you earn them, and you don't lose them for late payments after they kick in.

ah okay. yeah, i'm pretty set on MEFA for stafford, still thinking about gradplus though.

and my medical records are going to be late (a few days anyways..).. :/ oh well.. hopefully they'll still let me register! :P

So is there a consensus about which Stafford lender gives us the best deal? MEFA?

hmm.. i misread the mefa benefits so sancho is right it does seem like a good deal but i couldn't find specific info on their site (it probably is there somewhere?) on how they deal with payments that are late.. like can you still get the discounted interest rate if you pay on time X number of times after that or whatnot. hopefully that wont ever have to happen but some lenders had pretty lenient policies, i can't find MEFA's.

Financial Aid / Re: Wachovia anyone?
