Financial Aid / Stafford Loans - 2 Questions
« on: June 07, 2006, 08:37:16 AM »
1.  What is "MPN?"

Now that Macs can run windows... If one were to buy one of these new Macs would it even matter if your school prefers PCs?

Incoming 1Ls / Study Groups
« on: May 16, 2006, 02:13:30 PM »
So I am wondering about whether or not it's a good idea to join a study group.   I'm sure there are both positive and negative aspects to it... What are you guys planning on doing?  How do you choose people for your study group?  I keep reading that they form during orientation week usually, but it seems like kind of a crapshoot that way.  What do you all think?

Choosing the Right Law School / NYU- can I call them?
« on: April 24, 2006, 01:55:04 PM »
I still haven't heard a word from them (since I went complete on 11/7).  I have a deposit due on Friday to the school I am likely attending.  Do you think I should call NYU?  This is what their website says:

We ask applicants to please refrain from contacting us via email with questions about application receipt and status. Requests of this nature only slow down the process for all applicants. Candidates will receive information about application receipt and status as the process moves forward. The members of the Committee on Admissions and the staff of the Office of Admissions appreciate your patience.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / US news QUestion

do the law school rankings appear in the US News magazine or only online?  The reason I'm asking is because I have access to proquest (an online service that allows me to get articles from lots of magazines and journals) but I am unable to get the rankings through there.

Choosing the Right Law School / Financial Aid at Northwestern question
« on: March 29, 2006, 11:36:27 AM »
So I just got my "preliminary financial aid award announcement" form Northwestern.  I wasn't given any grants (free money) but after the typical 18500 federal loans it listed "private loans (not need based)."  Huh?  Why is this listed there?  does that mean the loan is through them?  why would they put that on there?  i'm confused.  i don't get this financial aid stuff at all.
