Law School Admissions / Re: Fordham Application Status Checker
« on: January 09, 2008, 10:23:54 AM »
I applied on December 14 and my application is still not shown in the status checker. Should I call and check on it? I know that I have read before that the status checker is not always that accurate but I am nervous!

Did you make sure to include the L in your account number?

I just sent off another app today is desperation.

Only accepted to Rutgers and American? Desperation indeed . . . No one should go to either of those at full price. I would just take the LSAT again and reapply.

Is anyone else tired of this guy?

Financial Aid / Re: FAFSA Questions

Another question...
When it asks:
Do you want to answer questions about your parents?

Note: You may want to answer the parental questions if:

    * You are a health profession student (such as a medical or nursing student), or
    * Your school requires parental information from all students

How do you determine if a school requires parental information? Do I need to send one FAFSA for schools that do require parental information and one for those that don't?
I know BC requires a copy of your parents tax returns and W2s, but does that mean I don't need to include their info on the FAFSA?

I hate this stuff... :'(

Law School Admissions / Re: Has LSAC processed your updated transcript?

Do you *have* to send in the form with the updated transcript?
I want to send in an updated one, but I don't want to wait till I get back to school.

Tagging because, I too, am staring at the FAFSA completely bewildered...

 ??? A 1040 what?

During the summer, we ran our AC at 78 in a 4 bedroom house, and sometimes our bills got that high (never more than $350).
We had neighbors who ran theirs at 65 and paid $850 one month.
In Austin, I ran my AC at 72 in a 400 sq ft apartment and my bills were usually $80.
It's definitely miserable in the peak summer months.

Thank you for your responses. That was indeed helpful.

Financial Aid / FAFSA Questions
« on: January 01, 2008, 07:12:13 PM »
I didn't fill out a FAFSA for undergrad, so this is a totally new thing for me.. just a couple questions:

"Money received, or paid on your behalf (e.g., bills), not reported elsewhere on this form"

Does this include tuition my parents paid? Do I need to declare the money my parents gave me for rent?

For school codes
I don't know which schools I've been admitted to yet, so should I just list every school I applied to regardless of my status?
There are only 10 spots on the FAFSA, is there anyway to add another 5 schools somehow?

Independent status
So, does everyone applying for law school apply as an independent on their FAFSA? One of the prereqs for independent status is entering graduate school in 2008, so wouldn't everyone get that?

Thanks for any help!

I'm away from my mailbox till this Saturday. The separation has been torture.
I'm just worried that my mailbox got too full and there's gonna be some problem getting all my mail. Eek!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: ITT: Dogs (and cats too, I guess)
« on: December 31, 2007, 05:13:01 PM »
Tag because I'm worried about this as well. I'm not worried about finding dog-friendly housing so much as I am worried about having to leave the poor guy alone all day.
I don't want to be that person that has to skip stuff because I have to go home to let the dog out, but at the same time, I don't want to go to school without him.
I guess the best situation would be to find a roommate who likes dogs/has a dog and is willing to take turns letting the dog out.
