Matokah -- Thanks for the info.  All I knew about it was there would be something in the morning and something in the afternoon (I thought it was the same thing) but they hadn't said when it was going to start.  Since I haven't been on a formal tour or sat in on a class yet, I definitely want to go!

I'm guessing (based on last year's calendar) that classes start on August 22, so orientation is probably during the week before.  There's also apparently a graduate student orientation during the weekend after our first week of classes.

I'm a ChemE going to law school as well.   :)  I'll probably do patent law but plan to get a well-rounded legal education in case I want to change my mind.  I'll be attending Catholic.  How about you?

I got a letter from Catholic today summarizing my financial aid...

Abevigoda -- Maybe you should give them a call ASAP to let them know how much you want to attend (esp. with Suffolk's offer).  Won't they probably be swamped on admit day?

What about using the offer as leverage with Catholic's financial aid office?  Several people have posted here about turning down scholarships from Catholic, so you would think funds are available. 

That's what she meant!  ::)

I wish they would hurry up and decide what the program's going to be on the 1st so I can figure out what to do about child care.  And, I'm impatient.  In a way, I'm ready for school, already, almost...

There is another person driving from Chicago, JManning, who has been posting on the Students board.  I live in Maryland so I won't have far to drive.  Hope to see you there.   :)

It sounds like Case Western is the best choice of the three for you, since they have a strong program in a field you want to study and they offered you the most money.  Go for it!

Congratulations!   ;D  Are you going to the admit weekend?

Anyone know what they do with the money from students who decide to go elsewhere (the ones who were given scholarships and declined, I mean)? Does it get redistributed?

That sure would be nice!  Something to ask about during the admit weekend, I guess.  I really liked Catholic when I visited, too.  I spent about an hour talking with a 2L and a 2004 grad at the library desk, and they were very enthusiastic about the school and how close they felt with their sectionmates even beyond 1L, because there's such a strong community.  Anyway, I hope to see you on the 1st and 2nd.
