I plan on working full time and going to school part time if I attend SLU.  However, I just go a really nice scholarship offer from Case a few minutes ago, and I'm beginning to debate my options again.  I said that once I made my mind up on SLU things would be final, but now the money from Case has me going back on my word.

Is i just me, or does this process make you feel like you don't know yourself at times?  I just can't wait for this entire process to be over with.

KappaOne, did you hear from case yet?  Unless they come through with a huge scholarship, I'll be at SLU as well. 

That admitted students thing may be a stretch since it's a 10 hour drive for me, and I miss enough class as it is.

I still haven't heard anything from Case yet on scholarship funds.  While I've decided to attend SLU, I'm still going to the Case Preview Day this weekend because I purchased non-refundable plane tickets (this sucks!).  Unless Case came with nearly a full tuition scholarship, there's no way I would change my mind at this point. I'll be enrolling in the SLU evening program, so I'll be able to keep my day job and I was offered a scholarship as well. Also, since I'd like to work in St. Louis, SLU seems to be my best option.

Let me know whether you decide on SLU or Case.  I'm from the area so I can give you some first-hand info about things in the STL if you'd like.

I'm also fairly sure I'll be attending SLU. My husband and I decided that Tulane is just way too expensive (and nowhere near St. Louis, the place we want to work). Mizzou's second round of scholarships go out in April, so unless I receive money from them, I'm going to SLU as well.

Where did you find an apt? I've been looking at Lindell Towers (I stayed in them when I was in St. Louis one summer and was very happy with the quality), but I heard there were cheaper places in Central West End.

My wife and I have decided to live at Lindell Towers.  It's right near the law school and just down the street from my company, so it's perfect.  I looked at some other areas, but none had the same level of quality and security for the price.

Well, after an informal visit to the Saint Louis University School of Law today, I decided that I'll be attending the evening program in the fall.  While I was in the area, I also found a great apartment near campus, so I'm really excited about the fall.

My only apprehension is that I'm wondering how difficult it will be to juggle my day job and my law school work. 

For those of you attending part time programs, how do you plan on balancing your work, home and school life?

Although I still have apps pending at other schools, I've decided to attend the evening program at Saint Louis University in the fall.

I did an informal visit to the school today and loved the atmosphere and the facilities.  While I was in the area, I found a great apartment near the campus and should close on the lease this week.  Since I plan to work in St. Louis when I graduate, it seems SLU will be a perfect fit.

Anyone else decided on attending SLU?

Consider your sefl lucky.  If I got the same offer, I'd take it and run with it.  I'm still holding on my scholarship offer.

I just contacted the Federal Student Aid Information Center and the customer service rep told me the same thing that Matthies just stated.

i apologize for not having the patience to read each of these posts on this topic, my question may have been discussed. i am curious to know if you can recieve financial aid as a PT student?

The school I've been accepted to has offered me a scholarship for both their full time and part time program.  I'm curious about how much in Federal loans can be taken out by part time students.  I'm going to call the school's financial aid office today to find out.

Also, to the dude who said traffic was bad....are you kidding me? Try living where i do at the 405 and 10 merge in West LA, then tell me traffic is bad in NO.  :P

Thanks for providing a different perspective.  I'm from St. Louis, and it's considered the 20 minute city.  You can pretty much get anywhere in 20 minutes and that includes during traffic jams.  I guess I've become spoiled ;)

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Deposits or Deadlines
« on: March 10, 2005, 01:40:26 PM »
Two of my deadlines are April 1 and one is April 15.  I still have 11 apps pending, so I'm going to bite the bullet and put deposits down for two out of the three so that I can hold my spot until I hear more.  Hopefully I'll hear something back by the end of the month and will be able to save myself a few bucks.

Still, I figure a few hundred dollars is nothing after all of the time and money I've put into this process.  I'd hate to get penny wise now and miss out on a good opportunity.
