Will I get that money back?  Or will they apply to assorted fees and whatnot?

To ensure a place in the fall 2007 entering class, remember to pay your tuition deposit. Please send your checks, payable to "The University ______," to the admissions office. The deposits will appear as a credit on your first tuition statement.


So I can just pick up money in the casheir's office, right?

Financial Aid / trying to figure out how much I need for CoL

I'm taking a full scholly and will have about $2.5K banked before summers end
No car, no phone, no tv, no internet, no child support etc.


I'm looking at ~$550 in rent for a minneapolis shithole apartment.  Books estimated at $800/sem.  Can I make it off just the 8.5K subsidized loan?

If you ding a school, fill out their surveys etc.  I was cordial and honest and Akron wound up offering me a LOT more money after I rejected them.

I was pretty damn sure I was going to school there for about a week, but then I found out I'd successfully used their offer to get St. Thomas (Minneapolis) to increase from 20k/yr to a full scholly.

167/2.7

I did the LSAT, as well as all of my undergraduate study, with a hangover.


It could happen to you some day, if you just put your mind to it:

As per the email:

Actually, here is what you need to carry the full-tuition portion of the award through to graduation:



End Fall 2007: 2.3

End Spring 2008: 2.5

End Spring 2009: 3.3



So, let’s say, for example, you carry a 2.7 all through law school. You will have gotten years 1 and 2 paid for by the full-tuition portion, plus (in effect) year 3 “up front” in the form of the $15,000 stipend (assuming you get Ohio residency after your first year, which is likely…see http://www.uakron.edu/registrar/ResRulesandRegs.php for clarification on Ohio residency rules). If you carry at least a 3.3, you get all three years paid for plus $15,000 cash.

how easy is ohio residency?  We're talking 26K vs 16K. 

Right now I'm considering 60K @ St. Thomas - MN gauranteed.

47
Full tuition +15K stipend


In addition, the cumulative GPA required to continue the full-tuition portion of the award into the second year has been reduced from 3.30 (roughly the top 10% of the class) to 2.50, which is roughly the top 60% of the class.

Does that mean it still takes a 3.3 to get from fall to spring?


I'm so skeptical...

b/c if you go about every 6 months w/ out a drink then get hammered and make an ass out of yourself one night and decide you are an alcoholic you are too sensitive and being hard on yourself.  you do not have a dependence on alcohol, you're just an idiot who can't hold his liquor.

Just because my hand doesn't tremble if I don't have a morning scotch doesn't mean I don't have a problem.  When alcoholics (my operative definition) enjoy drinking, they are not in control of it, or when they are in control of it, they aren't enjoying it.

I coulda got OneNote 2007 for $39 through the University of Wisconsin -  [Any]'s software deal.

But instead I got an Office 2007 package that included that (and word, etc) for $79.

Alcoholics are the ones that *need* AA, while the Binge/Irresponsible/Immature Drinkers will ultimately be able to "just stop."

I think I'm that one.  5 weeks an still going, despite tons of opportunity for free beer.


Bartending on weekends probably isn't my best job choice ever.
