Financial Aid / Loan Consolidation?
« on: July 24, 2006, 11:05:23 AM »
I'm trying to decide which GradPlus loan to get and have a question.  My school says you should probably go with the loan that will give you the 3% rebate for the origination fee and not worry about all the interest rate reductions they offer once you enter repayment because most students consolidate their loans upon graduation. 

While this sounds like a good idea, we have no clue what the consolidation interest rates will be at in three years.  So is it smarter to get the 3% origination rebate now and in my case save $500 or to just pay a little more right now and make sure I get a 6.5% interest rate in repayment?

Choosing the Right Law School / Hofstra Law T-Shirt
« on: June 01, 2006, 02:29:12 PM »
Okay so I got in to Hofstra some time ago and they sent me a shirt, oh how nice of them  ;)

So today I'm working around the house getting it ready to sell so we can move to Denver and I'm wearing my Hofstra T-Shirt they sent to me.  As I'm taking a piss I look in the mirror and the damn typing is off center.  The T-Shirts they send out to the accepted students, are they rejects or something?

Law School Admissions / Wisconsin Email
« on: January 23, 2006, 07:10:03 AM »
I received an email from Wisconsin this morning saying my file was being circulated through the Admission Committee.  I'm just wondering if anyone else has received this email and if so how long did it take you to get a decision after receiving it?

Financial Aid / FAFSA Codes
« on: January 04, 2006, 06:14:53 PM »
So when you're filling out FAFSA and do the search for school codes I take it you just use the general school code and that there are not specific law school codes?

So I've already applied to just about all of my schools. I have no idea bout my PS.  Just out of curiousty I would like some feedback.. Nothing special since my schools already have my essay but if you want to tell me I'm a retard I'm all for it...PM me.

Law School Admissions / Cooley Rankings
« on: December 10, 2005, 04:11:26 PM »
Okay, so we all know the Cooley rankings are a joke, but I was wondering on how accurate their stats were on the searchable part.  They seem to make a big deal about US News just getting numbers wrong, so are their number more accurate?  It's kind of a nice tool to be able to search by a wide variety of factors, but are they accurate?
