Financial Aid / Re: Cosigner
« on: April 16, 2006, 05:50:36 AM »
A co-signer on a private loan has nothing to do with EFC.  Most likely your law school won't even know if you have one. 

Yup, BU.  I only wasn't considering it seriously because I thought maybe I'd want a big change and leave Boston.  But they offered me a scholarship I couldn't refuse.  Plus, i think law school will be enough of a change anyways. :P

If you mean your refund check for living expenses, you can't receive it until the first day of classes.  Hope that helps!

Financial Aid / Re: I'm Clueless with Fin. Aid stuff-- any advice?

One thing about the Grad PLUS loan as of now:  it will not have a grace period after you graduate.  So it might not be the best option for that reason.  FWIW. Hopefully, the feds will come out with better guidelines soon!

I got my official "no grant" letter today (it was expected.)  It should be there this week!

Financial Aid / Re: Ineligible for Stafford loans???

Hi, I work in financial aid and have seen this comment code pop up.  Most likely, because of the consolidation, NSLDS is double counting your loans (i.e., its counting the individual loans AND the consolidation loan.)  This is actually very common.  I would pull your NSLDS report ( and check this.  Then call all the schools.  This shouldn't be too hard to resolve if that is what is causing it.

If, on the other hand you are over the ugrad aggregate (which it doesn't sound like b/c you were aware of how close you were), you will have to pay it down unfortunately.  Feel free to pm me with any other questions!

Financial Aid / Re: FAFSA to more than 6 schools?

Once the FAFSA is processed, you can go in to and make a correction.  You can then delete a school that already received it and add another.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Penn!

I agree, 2Legit. I've been saying for weeks that I wished they'd just reject me already (although I did feel a little let down when I opened the letter.)  But it's over now!  I have one more admitted student day but I'm about 90% sure I'll be Cornell (unless BU's admitted student day blows me away!)  And you have Michigan! :P

It was a little, thin envelope.  I knew it the second I came home and saw it sitting on the table.  My understanding is that Penn has been e-mailing or calling all admitted students.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
