General Off-Topic Board / Re: Mozilla/LSD Question

Make sure you don't have a firewall (such as Norton Internet Security) that might be somehow blocking certain images.  If that's a possibility, disable/close that app to see if it makes a difference.

tools, options, web features, load images.

if that box is checked then I don't know what to tell you.

Yea, it's checked.  Darn.

Just plain Mozilla or Firefox?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Need Access
« on: February 14, 2005, 12:31:19 AM »
As I see it, Need Access is necessary at schools that require it.  It will most likely screw me at schools where I had to fill it out.  From the questions they ask, I can't see how it could make your financial aid package any better for you.  To answer your last question, I did not notice any part of the process that would allow you to add schools after the initial submission, so it's probably best to enter for all the schools you are applying to in the first shot.  Also, they want you to send your, and your parents tax papers to most of the schools.

My parents make a ton of cash, especially considering there aren't any students home.  But I'm freaking 26 years old and on my own--so it shouldn't matter at all what they earn.  Ticks me off that it might really hurt my financial aid package.  So should I really do multiple schools?  Is there a time issue at all (my parents haven't filed yet)?  Will this allow schools to propose a package before I've even committed?

2007-2008 would be more relevant for us since we'll still be in LS in '06. Thanks for the info though.

Yeah, I know, but just general FYI.

Incoming 1Ls / Need Access
« on: February 13, 2005, 10:45:41 PM »
Alright, kick my LSD trash if this is painfully redundant, but what's the scoop with Need Accesss?  I just did my taxes so it doesn't look like the information will be too painful to enter. Here are my questions:

1. Is it worth entering multiple schools?
2. Is the point of Need Access to give the school more info so they can put together a fin. aid package for you?
3. If so, would sending the info to multiple schools allow you to compare and barter a bit better?
4. Can you add schools after the initial submission?

Thanks in advance.

Good info for those of us planning on going for a clerkship in a couple of years.  The "due dates" for 2006 are up already as well.  Just in case any of us are maniacal about planning ahead...

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Phone Call from UChicago!

I gotta give it up for a fellow BYU kid.  Congrats!  You didn't endure 4 years of Provo for nothing.  We need more of us representing at the top schools.

Geez, thanks everyone. I was just leaving a job interview and, since I had seen several from LSN get in yesterday and today, said to myself, "I sure would LOVE to have a voice mail from Chicago waiting for me". Well, I did.  Called back, left a message, and got the call back from Ann not long after.  I was in the car and she could tell so she said she'd let me go.  So, it's a good day.  Going to see Dallin H. Oaks (LDS apostle and former dean of U Chicago) speak to the J Reuben Clark Law Society tonight... maybe I'll tell him I'm in where he studied, taught, and was dean. :)

Add me to the list.  I got my call, just as I had hoped yesterday.  This just might be my number one.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Georgetown online status check??

Have any PTs gone to decision yet?  I had to call there to change my mailing addy and I tried to weasel some info out of the chick I talked to.  She said that they're so swamped with apps and so backlogged that she has no idea if any of us, even the PTS, are gonna have anything before mid to late March.  Sucks, doesn't it? 

I'm applying PT and went decision this morning.  I was complete by 01/14 (that's when I first checked it online).  Does anyone know how long after decision accepted students can log into the accepted students site?

It says four days all over the place, but I question the accuracy of most things G'town's admissions committee says.
