I would check the firm's website and see what it says. All of the firms I've been eyeing are pretty clear about where to send resumes.


What do you actually do in your summer associate position? I have no idea what those jobs entail and I'm very curious.


Each lender has different terms for each school. You should check the finaid site for your school to see if they have any special deals with any lenders.

Citibank (through my school) didn't charge me a fee.


Not all lenders charge a fee. Check your school's fin aid page for no-fee lenders.

Happy to help. Good luck! Maybe I'll see you at L&C next year.

I put most of the 'i love your school, I want to be there' in my scholarship addendums. My first one focused on why I need money from them, how committed I was to the school, why I loved the school, etc. The second one (it was actually an appeal for more money) talked about what I would bring the school (basically, how great I am) and reiterated my love for the school.

I did discuss why I want to go to L&C a bit in my personal statement, but not a whole lot. L&C was the only school I wanted to attend, so i wrote the statement with them in mind and then edited it a bit for the other schools.

After I sent in the signed promissory note, I received a confirmation letter a week or so later. Once you get the confirmation, you are set until the school disburses the loan checks. Some schools do this a day or two before classes start (I think) and others do it the first week of classes.

If you are unsure or a little paranoid, call them and see what they say. I'm betting that you are good to go.

Even though you are white and male, you must have had some interesting experiences in life, right? Play those up on your personal statement. Talk about why you need the scholarship in your scholarship addendum. Be creative. Also, a tip about L&C - rather than focusing on trying to get them to give you more money because other schools gave you some, tell them how much you love the school. What will you bring that others might not? L&C really wants to hear how much you love the school. I have a friend that used to work in the Admissions department there and she confirmed this.

Once you get your first offer, ask for more. Tell them again how great you are, how much you love the school, that you are 100% committed to going but you just need more help, etc.

Good luck!

It's at

My score was probably a bit lower than yours, but my cosigners was over 700. I believe that the fee was based on his score.
