I didn't know you were non-trad, CZ. Who are you waiting on?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Financial Aid Packages

This didn't exactly answer my question but that's ok-- the slow school I'm referring to (who hasn't finished reviewing EARLY apps yet, much less started Regular ones) isn't at the top of my list at the moment. Well, ha...they are on a list alright, just not the good kind.

(just to clarify- I wasn't referring to seat deposits... I'm talking about accepting the scholarship/grant/loan package. Once the gov't is involved in the money stuff, can you bail on it if a better offer comes along later and still get aid to that better school?)

This thread makes me sad... didn't think I was old until now. I have a Facebook and a Myspace and I think both are fun, but apparently I need to cancel both accounts immediately and velcro on some orthopedic shoes...  :'(

(27 now, will turn 28 before classes this fall)

I've received only 1 so far... but question about that: The letter states that I must accept/reject this award by May 1st. So, what happens if I haven't heard back from all my schools by then (I've got 1 WL and 1 school that's quoting me "mid-May" for decision...)???

I've heard the stories of people all set to go to X school and then Y school calls them off the WL in July, so I'm sure this financial aid nightmare has happened before. Does anyone know the outcome?

I'll be at their ASD/Chili Cook-off in a couple weeks... hoping that helps me decide what to do.

I doubt W&M places too many people in TX. Unlike many other states, Texas has that "good ole boy" attitude. They like southerners. They LOVE Texans. I think Virginia is considered  to be South by the Mason-Dixon Line's definition, but to Texans, it's still North.

<<<---- would GLADLY contribute to UVA's cause to become more financially independent by kicking them 40k/yr out-of-state tuition. Heck, I'd legally sign my inheritance over to them as an endowment if they'd let me into their GLORIOUS institution. I love you UVA! :D

(no, seriously... send me a contract-- I'll sign it)

Ditto-- on the undecided but attending the April 4th ASW. We should all introduce ourselves by our LSD names... like a secret code-- of course, you'll all recognize me...

<<<---- me
