General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: NYU Class of 2009

Oh sorry about that. In the first paragraph, I was talking about private loans.

I'm deciding between Citibank and AccessGroup myself. Right now, I think Citibank's best rate is lower than AccessGroup's best rate. I don't think you know what rate you'll get until after you apply, though, so I don't know if that helps. I've read more favorable things about the LIBOR, so I'm leaning towards AccessGroup.

Citibank's Stafford incentives do seem the best. But if I decide to go with AccessGroup for private, I'd probably use them for Stafford as well for convenience.

Are we able to apply for loans yet? I thought we were supposed to get something from the FinAid office first before we start.

July 1, I'm pretty sure. Although that's a Saturday, so maybe June 30 to be safe?

Wait List / Re: Waitlisted at Columbia

On a side note, didn't realize there were so many Chicagoans on the thread. What's up with this cold weather? It's the middle of June, for christssake!

Yikes!  Hasn't anyone explained to you what a bad idea it is to complain about the weather in Chicago?  Complaining only makes it worse! Also, come August, you'll be dying for weather like this again.

Attention weather gods (cc: Mayor Daley): This weather is AWESOME, I only want more of it.



I was born and raised here, so I know better  than to complain  ;) I'm just incredulous at having to turn the heat back on. You're totally right, though... better this than 100+ heat indexes!

Dinged off the waitlist. Oh well.  :-\

Yep, me too.  Feels almost like getting thrown through a window, eh?  ;)


More like being dangled out of a window and then let go  :P

Yeah, I knew I was running a risk being this specific, but I DEFINITELY didn't want to get assigned to a place that was too small or too expensive for me and the SO.

Any natives have suggestions on the best way to apartment hunt in NYC? I know there are a couple of existing threads on this topic, which I will try to dig up, but any advice would be appreciated.

ETA: Thanks, Tiwaz! I've gotten used to waitlists by now, so it's not too disappointing  ;)

Dang... I just got waitlisted for housing. I thought I'd be done with waitlists by now!  :P

Not sure if it's because I applied for family housing, didn't want an alternative assignment, or both. Guess I better start apartment hunting. Anyone else get the WL?

Looking at all the NYU forms reminded me that I should join this roll call. Hey everyone!
hi, fentrex.  you and i are in the same position re, waitlists.  are you a stanford alum?  anyway, welcome!  :)
o, are you doing d'ag or mercer?
Stanford 04. Nice to meet another Cardinal :) I tried for couples of housing at Mercer.
Good fun, those waitlists. I'm assuming you'd go to Harvard if you got in, but how about Columbia?

would you go to harvard if you got in?  what about columbia?  looks like you and i are amongst the few that got the harvard call and got WLed.  wtf did we do wrong?  :D

Harvard, yes. Columbia, not sure. Don't know what happened with the Harvard call. I still don't think the calls had an evaluative purpose, so I don't think we did anything wrong necessarily. Maybe the admissions office decided that mindf*cking some of their applicants this year would be good for a laugh :P

In any case, I think NYU will be more fun to go to ... at least that's what I'm telling myself.  :D
