I have a 3.6 157 and was offered $8,000 in merit aid.

Wow, thanx for the info. At UK you can make A+'s. Would this indicate a generous curve?

 Most schools I have looked at, like UK, publish there curve information in their student handbook.  UK's curve is B- I think.  I found all information online.

Apologies to the boys since this has become the birth control thread but . . . I agree about the IUD although my sister has had one with no problems so far.  I don't know if the IUD has the same added benefits of the pill though - little cramps, light and short periods.

I have a 3 1/2 yr old boxer, Ella.  She's going to live with my parents for the 3 yrs. I'm in law school.  Spending most of my time in class/the library/mentally unavailable, I'll feel extremely guilty that she won't be a high priority in my life.  Plus after selling my house, and moving to a small apartment, the 5+ acres that my parents live on will be very appealing to my pooch.  I'll still visit her once per week when we have Sunday family dinners.  So, if you're going to Pitt, have no family in the area, and you become my friend, there may be homecooked dinners in your future!  :D Haha.

I'll take you up on family dinners and in return my dog Camiel will be happy to share the dog lovin'.  Hell, she'll love on you even if you don't want her too!  Looking forward to meeting my future law school buds on April 8th!

And just to throw it out there, UCLA offers birth control, about $20-35/mo I believe.

My point exactly.  That adds up especially when you have to take other drugs for other reasons.  With my HS I pay $16 for three months of birth control.  $35 a month is a lot, but I guess a baby cost more. :)

Prescriptions cost a lot of money, period.  Someone having a chronic illness, like Crohn's disease, is not in the minority.  What about asthma, severe allergies, high blood pressure, diabetes, hell even birth control.  None of the meds for these conditions are cheap.

Any suggestions on movers to avoid?   I've gotten written estimates from 2 and it seems expensive to me.  Also, anyone from Pitt who can fill me in on slumlords to avoid.  I'm praying to find a little place with a yard for my dog like I have now, but I am not very optimistic.

I got a full scholarship with a 157 and 3.63.  Maybe applying early is what helps for the scholarship money.  I did withdraw my application so maybe they will give my full scholarship to you. :)

I'll be attending Pitt as well.  Any of you going to the open house April 8th?  I'm coming from Kentucky.

A financial aid counselor told me that everyone is eligible for $18,500 in loans.  The EFC comes into play for the amount the government will subsidize.
