Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UCLA or Michigan?
« on: April 28, 2006, 02:20:27 PM »
I've tried, with no response, to get money from UCLA.  Mich offered me a little (after showing them money I'd received elsewhere).

UCLA hasn't NOT given me money, but they haven't told me anything - whether I qualify for need-based aid, etc. despite having sent in the paperwork in March and having gotten accepted in January.

it should only take them a few days to process the need-access.  you should call their financial aid office. also- call th admissions office and tell them your situation, mention that you need to make a decision very soon.  I informed them that I had a deposit deadline of April 15th, and about a week before the deposit was due I recieved a scholarship offer.  Coincidence?

UT. (edit, just my opinion; I dont think you can go wrong)

100k isnt going to allow you to do whatever you want.

If is was 40k vs 80k, i would have a different opinion.

and what if you lose your scholarship?

for most people- Michigan.

however, if UCLA is a lot cheapter it may be worth looking at.  Did you recieve a scholarship at UCLA?  If you got in at Michigan, you should be able to get some money out of UCLA.  Call and ask them about it.

ote, Michigan is probably the better choice unless you want to work in socal or you hate the cold.

Texas will be slightly more national, although I'm not claiming it is a true "national" school.

Have you recieved your financial aid package from UT?  I recieved an extra 3k in need grants that I was not expecting.  if you had little to no income last year you will probably recieve some type of need-based aid that could help make up for the cost difference.  Also, have you tried sending W&L's scholarship offer to UT for the matching program?  You never know, they might throw a few thousand bucks at you- they are pretty close to UT in the rankings.

If you dont get any more money from UT, I would go to Wash. and Lee.  #22 vs. #16 doesnt seem like it would be worth 40k, especially if you wouldnt mind working in Virginia.

I have said it before, but I really like my Dell XPS M140; still light with the larger batter, 14.1 inch widescreen is a good size, great battery life, and I also got the 3 year accidental damage protection and 3 year warranty to make sure it lasts all 3 years of law school

You need to log into to the newly admitted students' using the login and password they send you with the acceptance email page and then click on the link for housing to get to the roommates section.

hah, that makes so much more sense, thx. 

any insight into the Community Housing Office??  I've been trying to check out the online database there and using my UID and PIN to sign into the UCLA Students section, but when I sign on, it tells me that I'm currently not a student.  I called the office and they told me that no access until I'm officially registered for classes.  As an admitted student, I have to fill out this form and pay 25 bucks to get access.  i know that's not that much, but still, wtf?  have other ppl been able to use that?

i am going to wait to panic about where to live until they dont give me grad student housing- at that point i think i will kick the apartment search into high gear.

i feel like a total slimeball for saying it, but if you think he was seeing someone else, make a trip to the dr's office just to be safe.

that was pounded into my head by another poster the other day....

We are mormon's and we never actually had intercourse.

wonder why he left???

So yesterday we were talking of marriage and kids and today KAPUT.

I am in shock and deeply saddened and upset. He said he just didn't think this was the right relationship for him, we were together for 1 1/2 years.

We got on wonderfully, only ever argued like twice. I just don't understand. I saw him this morning and everything was fine, he kissed me and told me he loved me and then this afternoon he e-mails me and says to never contact him again.

His roommmate told me that his mother called, so maybe she said something to him, but I just don't get it. I thought she liked me.

Can anyone try and help me understand what is going on? He won't pick up my calls or answer my e-mails and I know he is at home and on the computer because his roommate told me.

Oh, My name is Val btw, I was a previous lurker. 

what can u possibly do?  he was obviously bs'ing you.  u should move on.
