I sent my Student Aid Application, Federal Tax return and W-2 in early March of this year.  I finally got news back today from my law school saying that they received my Application and FAFSA but not my Tax Return or my W-2.  I do not understand how this could happen.  I sent all my documents in together and they obviously got my application just not the documents that were stapled to it?  On top of that, I have been calling the financial aid office all day and cannot get ahold of anyone.  I tried to find an e-mail for the financial aid office but was unable to.  My plan currently is to make copies of my W-2 and Federal Tax return and sending them a copy everyday until they admit that they have received them or tell me what is wrong with my application.
I am upset and frustrated.  Has anyone else had similar issues with their Student Aid Office?  This seems super fishy to me.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Is it worth it to go to Whittier?

 Many people say that it is not worth it to attend a 4th tier school period.  I have been accepted to Whittier with a nice little scholarship.  I have not been able to find a job since I graduated from college and I am flat broke.  My feeling is that things cannot possibly get worse for me.  I have heard a lot of complaining from people that they are forced to take low paying jobs after law school.  I would rather work like a dog for peanuts then continue being unemployed and facing homelessness.  Should I go to law school?  What possible consequences could I face from attending a 4th tier school?
