Financial Aid / Leftover Loans?
« on: May 08, 2007, 07:15:39 PM »
What happens when I have loan money left at the end of the year? (and by loans, I'm referring to stafford loans). Do I give it back to the lender, or hold on to it for the next year? Any insight would be appreciated!

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Pepperdine Help
« on: March 28, 2007, 01:51:29 PM »
I got a full ride to Pepperdine, and, considering UCLA isn't coughing up anything as far as I can tell, I'm hoping someone can help me with the former!

I'm not really Christian, so what's the environment like? (not too conservative in my views, either)
Is it really that difficult for PU students to find jobs? I'm assuming it'll be like at almost any school-be in the top percent or so, and you're in a pretty good position.

I'm really hoping I won't regret my decision to go. But the full scholarship is too good to pass up!

Acceptances / NYU Letters
« on: February 02, 2007, 12:37:27 PM »
Does anyone know if NYU is done with acceptances? I'm looking through LSN, and I seem to be seeing no new acceptances in the past few days, although there are a lot of rejections.

Wait List / Berkeley Deferral
« on: February 02, 2007, 12:16:26 PM »
Anyone deferred from Berkeley hear back yet?

Acceptances / UCLA Financials
« on: February 02, 2007, 12:12:25 PM »
What can anyone tell me about UCLA and financial aid? There doesn't seem to be much information on their website about scholarships, aside from one, and they don't mention how much it is for. And I might be wrong, but do they send out financial aid info after April? That would be annoying...

I really hope UCLA's good about giving money! I'd love to go there, and they have to compete with $35,000 from Pepperdine.

Acceptances / Berkeley Email...
« on: January 25, 2007, 08:52:52 PM »
I got this email from Dean Tom that my application went through initial review...anyone else get a similar one, and what does it mean? Is that standard practice, or is it kind of like being deferred?

Acceptances / UCLA Notification
« on: December 28, 2006, 09:45:57 PM »
Does UCLA notify if they've received/processed your application? I sent it out last month and it's the only school I haven't heard from at all.

Wait List / How to get off deferral...
« on: December 27, 2006, 08:56:12 PM »
So I got deferred at one of my there anything I can/should do to improve my chances, or is that just a no-no? (ie send a letter, etc?)

Law School Applications / Boalt Complete???
« on: December 13, 2006, 01:32:20 PM »
It's been about 3 weeks and still no word from Boalt. Anyone else in the same boat?

Wait List / Deferral v Waitlist
« on: December 13, 2006, 10:42:07 AM »
Hi, I'm sure there's a post on this somewhere, but I can't find it. What's the difference between being deferred and waitlist? I was deferred as an EA app to GULC (not a good start), so is that better than WL?

I guess a 167/3.92 isn't good enough for these folks, huh? Haha
