Financial Aid / FinAid process while abroad
« on: December 16, 2007, 11:25:13 AM »
Does anyone have advice on how to deal with the financial aid process while abroad?

I'm going to be out of the country from January through the time ASW/D's come along, so I imagine I'll have to do mostly everything while there. At times I may be far removed from civilization, but mostly I should have access to internet cafés.

Law School Admissions / Withdrawing from CRS (TTT spam)
« on: December 12, 2007, 05:34:52 PM »
I got my LSAT score, got a bunch of fee waivers, and submitted 12 apps for the cost of four (plus LSDAS fees) thanks to the LSAC's Candidate Referral Service. Now, as I wait for acceptances, I'm getting increasingly annoyed as I continue to be bombarded with emails, viewbooks, postcards, and letters from Florida Coastal et al.

Is there any reason to stay enrolled in the CRS now that I've finished my applications? I'm assuming no, but I certainly don't want to miss out if they're sending fee waivers for Willie Wonka's factory or Space Camp or something... although I don't think I'd necessarily go if I have to pay another $12 for an LSDAS report.

I was wondering what others, who are applying for NYU's scholarships and/or scholars programs, are doing with their essays in terms of length and formatting.

I'm applying for the IILJ program, which instructs the applicant to write a statement of no more than 500 words and one page in length. Obviously, it is impossible to stick anywhere close to 500 words on a page using double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman with one-inch margins. Are you simply writing a shorter essay or what are you doing to fit 500 on one page?

Recommendations also welcomed from those not necessarily applying for these programs. Thanks!

I was curious what people were doing with their attached documents in terms of headers, footers, page numbers, etc. So far I've been planning to just put my name and LSAC number in a header with no other frills. What are you doing?

Thanks anyway. I'm submitting ASAP

Choosing the Right Law School / T14 people: ASWs important?
« on: October 20, 2007, 10:36:15 AM »
I hope to be getting decisions from T14 while on a trip across the world. My return flight is booked for April 30; after most, if not all, admitted-student weekends. I'm considering changing my reservation so that I'm back in time for ASWs, as opposed to making simple visits in May. I want to be sure any decision I make is adequately informed.

Any suggestions?
