Financial Aid / need access question
« on: January 05, 2006, 05:22:26 AM »
For those of you who already finished the need access forms, what did you put for the dates that your parents and you sumbitted your 1040s to the schools? Did you just estimate the date or leave it blank? I'm going to get my taxes done as soon as possible after I get my W2s, 1099s, etc, but I don't know when I'll be receiving the forms so I don't know when I'll be able to finish my taxes yet.

Also, was anyone else a bit mystified as to why there are questions about "unusual" parental medical expenses and elder care expenses on the student portion of the forms? Should that type of question be on the parental portion?


Law School Admissions / watching the mailbox
« on: December 20, 2005, 06:13:48 AM »
Although I continue to try to make myself understand that I really shouldn't be expecting to hear back from anywhere yet, I am still getting sweaty palms and a rapid heart rate every time I get near my mailbox. Yesterday, I did a quick survey of my christmas card postmark dates and it made me feel a bit better. So, for those of you who are wondering where your acceptance letters are, here's what I found.

Destination (aka my home)- Washington, DC
Arrival Date- December 19
Origin- Austin, TX Postmark- December 13
Origin- Louisville, KY Postmark- December 12
Origin- Baltimore, MD Postmark- December 17

I think this also means that the holiday cards I sent out on Monday probably won't make it to anyone before Saturday. But it's the thought that counts, right?

Financial Aid / financial aid calculators?
« on: December 19, 2005, 09:32:51 AM »
Are there any websites that can help estimate the amount of financial aid for which one might qualify? I am pretty sure that I won't qualify for anything since I own a home that I'll be selling when I move to start school, have a modest 401k, Roth IRA, money market account, etc, but I'd love to be able to get some of my questions answered so that I can figure out if it makes sense to apply.

Law School Admissions / University of Washington

Sorry if this has already been addresses somewhere, but I did a search and on LSN and couldn't find anything...

Has anyone had the University of Washington request their law school report yet? Or, does anyone know when they started requesting reports last year?

Work has been slow today (or I've been unmotivated to do the work I should be doing) and it had given me far too much time to stress about the application process.
