Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / BAD EXPERIENCE WITH TEMPLE
« on: May 09, 2008, 04:03:36 PM »
I am really upset with the fin aid office right now. I got accepted to the school with no $ and had sent an email asking if they could re-consider. I got a message back saying there was nothing they could do and I resigned myself to that. I made up my mind about going there and having to borrow the max amount of loans for the 1st yr then I got my fin aid award letter in the mail teling me they were offering me 15,000 for the first year as a Law Faculty Scholarship. You can imgine my joy and excitement. Then I had to call them cos I had a question about completing my MPN and the rep I was speaking to suddenly told me that the scholarship was a mistake. I was shocked and I let her know that I had declined other schools that were offering me scholarships cos I really desired to go to Temple. So she said somebody would call me back later. Imagine my surprise when I got an email saying "well we made a mistake and that's that"
I am so upset cos I feel like at least they owed me a phone call to apologize and I feel like they could have at least offered me some $ for such a terrible mistake.

Has anyone ever been in this type of situation?

I feel helpless cos I feel like I can't do anything about this cos I really wouldn't want to take it a step further( and even if I did, I wouldn't know what to do) but I just think there should be some type of action I can take about this.

Any advice, anyone?

Choosing the Right Law School / Temple or Chicago-Kent????

I really need some help. I have been accepted at both Chicago-Kent with 13,000 and Temple with no $. All the scholarship does though, is bring Kent's cost of attendance down to the about the same level as Temple's. I attended Kent's ASD and I was quite impressed however, I'd rather work on the East Coast after LS than in the Mid-West. It doesn't see like I will be able to visit Temple before school starts.  I am really having a hard time making up my mind although I have mailed Temple's deposit today. Can anyone help with pros and cons for both schools?  :-\
