Law School Admissions / Re: University of Denver- MyWeb
« on: February 06, 2008, 03:59:21 PM »
So I called this morning and they said that doesn't mean that you are accepted. But Karen, the lady I spoke with, was really nice and said that she would look at my application today and get back to me in the next couple of days. When I called I asked to speak to an admissions advisor.

So the MyWeb business doesn't have as much significance as I thought it would.

I tried to call them earlier and they were closed. They closed at 4:30, couldn't they just stay open for another half hour? That would be nice.

I'll call them tomorrow.

If someone can tell me how to post a picture I will post a picture of MyWeb so you guys can see. It looks like I am accepted, but I don't want to get my hopes up for no reason.

That would be sweet! I want to call admissions but I don't want to be annoying; they probably have about 50 calls everyday about admissions status.

So in myweb under the "Student and Financial Aid" tab it lists:

Admissions
Enter a new application ~ Complete an application ~ Review application status
 Registration
Check your registration status; Add or drop classes; Select variable credits, grading modes, or levels; Display your class schedule.
 Student Records
View your holds; Display your grades and transcripts; Review charges and payments.
 Financial Aid
Apply for financial aid ~ Review application status ~ Review loans
 Student Account
 Housing
Apply for Housing ~ View/Change Housing Preferences
 Study Abroad
Inquire and Apply for DU Study Abroad Programs
 Writing and Research Center
Schedule an appointment ~ View/Cancel your appointments


So it has all those options. I clicked on "Registration" and these were some of the options:

   Accept/Waive Health Insurance and Fee
    COF Stipend Authorization
    COF Stipend History
    Withdraw from DU

The Withdraw one is interesting. Do they just put that on every myweb site? I am interested in the Stipend business also. I am guessing that COF means something different, but I want someone else to check theirs and update me.

Thanks again.

The only way to know for sure is to call the admissions office.  It could just mean that your status changed and they are reviewing your application.  Good luck!  :)

I would do that but I think that would seem annoying. There has to be someone else around that isn't admitted yet that can check theirs too to see if it says that. I think they tell you in the email not to call and ask about your application status.

Law School Admissions / Re: Four Year Low in Application Volume

I don't think it would show until the end of the cycle, when schools realize that the numbers are different, and also I think the people at the bottom would notice the difference, not at the top. There would still be enough people applying to the top 14 with high numbers that it wouldn't make a difference there. But people at the bottom would be getting into better schools, and the bottom schools, it would seem, would be left with smaller classes because they get the leftovers.

So I did some investigating (I actually just clicked the link) and learned that COF Stipend stands for College Opportunity Fund. It doesn't look like that has much significance to me. But can someone who also has access to myweb, but hasn't been officially admitted yet, check and see if they have the option to withdraw from the school too?

Law School Admissions / University of Denver- MyWeb
« on: February 05, 2008, 03:00:12 PM »
Can I ask all University of Denver applicants a favor? Can you check your myweb page and see if under Student and Financial Aid tab, and then under the category Registration. If I do that there is an option to withdraw from DU. Do you have that also. I want to know if that means I am accepted. Also, there is another option right above the withdraw option that says COF Stipend. I am probably being naive in thinking that means I maybe got a stipend?

Can you help me out?

Also, does anyone know how to post a picture? I will just take a screen shot and post it if someone tells me how to post a picture.

Thanks for your responses. I think my comment appeared confrontational. I was more about the DU students thinking they are prestigious. I think we all hope too! :)

So I saw that someone asked the question that if your myweb all of a sudden has registration stuff and other info does that mean you were accepted. Because myweb just started saying that and it also lists stipend stuff on the bottom of one of the pages. I would be pretty stoked if I got a stipend also, although I don't know how much my numbers warrant it. My index on LSN is 3.4, but I didn't see anything above a 20,000 dollars scholarship on there. Can someone else check their myweb and see if theirs says all that stuff too? It would be appreciated.

So I read all 27 pages of that other DU thread. I am getting pretty excited to get an acceptance from somewhere. My wife wants us to go to DU though. She loved it there. I did also on my visit. I don't remember if I mentioned this on my last post, but the professors were quite impressive. Also, Denver is much more appealing than Boulder. Also, I like the idea of a fabulous amount of alumni.
