Financial Aid / Re: what is the typical fin aid package

What if I have a lousy credit (bankruptcy) and still need money after exhausting the Stafford limit?

So, should you include only the schools to which you know you've been admitted already or others as well?

Law School Applications / Re: UCLA

I applied there on 10/18 and still haven't received a "complete" notice. I've only been notified "complete" by about a dozen schools of 30 or so that I applied to last month, so it takes a while for some. Georgetown didn't even tell me anything; I found out through their online status check.

I took Testmasters. Sure it helped, but it would've been just as effective if I studied on my own. When the course was over I still wasn't ready to take the test and studied another couple of months.

A couple of Americans get kidnapped every month there. Poorest country in the hemisphere.

I sure hope there's a significant upside to counterbalance the risk of going to such a worthless place.

I'm going to a Spanish immersion school in Central America. Not too safe as well, but at least you come back bumping Spanish skills.

Requested today. Could be a weekly thing from now on.

Law School Applications / Re: early decision helpful?

Acceptance rates from ED are the same as regular acceptance rates.  I.E., UMich's acceptance rate is about 20% for regular decision and 20% for ED. I guess the only clear benefit is that an applicant will hear back earlier when applying through ED>

Yeah, but the ED pool is probably somewhat weaker than the RD guys.

Don't do ED.  If you are applying early, there is no benefit in it.

Really? I read somewhere that schools give you a little boost when you show such commitment to them, no?

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: R14 Law School Report Code

I got R13, which is the same "call LSAC," from BU. LSAC told me BU refuses to request my report because of my status, call BU. BU had no idea what that was about either, but asked to call later when the Director is back.
