Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Who went to BU on Friday?
« on: April 02, 2006, 09:29:03 PM »
I am curious.  I could not get out of work to go there.  Who went to the admitted students' day, and what was your impression?  Thanks!

Financial Aid / You're killing me, American
« on: March 24, 2006, 05:53:26 PM »
OK, so I was thinking of going to American until I received my financial aid package today.

It was insulting.  Nevermind the measly grant, but the Stafford loans barely hit $9k.

This means they expect me to take out private loans for over $40,000.

Other schools have at least given me the max allowed Stafford loans plus a decent grant.

I realize American only does need-based aid, but my EFC is $10k so I still need $43,000!

ARRGGGHHHHHH.

Where should I go next fall? / BU vs. American?
« on: March 04, 2006, 11:18:15 AM »
I've (sort of) narrowed it down to these two choices (except for waitlists), for various reasons.  I want to do government work when I'm done.  Should I stay in DC and go to American?  I also have friends and a boyfriend here in DC, so that is making things a bit murky.  If Georgetown let me in off their preferred WL, I would certainly go there.  Ahhhh!!!

Law School Applications / Uh Oh?

Bad News
As of January 20, applicants are down 10.1% from this time last year.  That may sound like good news, but two weeks ago it was 11.2%, so there were more apps this week.
