Does it just change the amount that is subsidized?  So you may get less than $8,500 subsidized?  But can you still get the $18,500 no matter what?

The reason I'm asking is I have about $5,000 EFC since I worked a year before law school and want to make sure I can get the full $18,500 of direct loans.


In my law school financial aid packet it shows that the budget is for 9 months out of the year, and doesn't include the mandatory health insurance... what exactly are we suppose to do for summer rent, etc?  Not really a good chance that I will be landing a paying 1L job... :(

Wait List / Loyola LA Waitlist

I'm actually kind of proud of getting waitlisted with my numbers... :)

My last school, I'm done!  Woohoo!

When submitting my application online to University of San Diego it didn't save my last page to my application.  I E-mailed them with a PDF of my last pages when I realized this happened with another university, and they responded they would contact me via mail when they review my application.

In November I received a letter asking for the last few pages that didn't transmit, so I mailed them back to them.

Today in the mail (5 months later) I received a letter from them asking for the same pages I already submitted to them both via E-mail and regular mail.

This late in the cycle I have no chance of getting in with my mediocre numbers... how do I politely ask for a refund for my application fee?

Just curious... since I don't have a cosigner, and I definately need private loans for law school next year.  I did a free credit score check online and I know I have a score of 760+, if that helps.

Denials / University of San Francisco (USF) ding

Really surprised, I got into Santa Clara which I regard higher than them.  Of all the schools I applied to, I figured I'd only get into USF and Pepperdine, weird.  Least I didn't want to go to USF.

Info in sig.

I'm 99% sure I'm going to Santa Clara next year, but does anyone have any apartment advice?  The on campus housing seems a bit pricey for how small the rooms are (about 320 square feet for $850/month with full utilities, cable and internet).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Acceptances / Anyone heard anything from Santa Clara?

Their EA notification is today and I haven't heard anything yet... anyone else worried?

Supposively due to rolling admissions, the earlier you apply, the better your chances due to more open seats you are fighting for... so if you get dinging for EA and get put back in the normal application pool, do you even have a shot?  Aren't your chances suppose to be better for applying to EA, so if you get dinged for that, aren't you just dinged in general?

The only counter argument is possibly EA applications are up heavily this year and the amount of applications in general are down... so EA could be an overrepresentation of the number of applicants and they'd ding more people for EA...

Any thoughts?

Law School Applications / Does going to an open house improve your chances?

I've always been curious about this.  They always want you to sign in when you go to an open house... do you think they slip it into your file so that they know who is serious about going to their school?

Or what about people who apply with a fee waiver and those who do it without?  A lot of law schools have to know a lot of the people who apply to their schools with a fee waiver wouldn't be doing it otherwise and is probably using the school as anothe safety.
