Golden Gate / Going to Golden Gate
« on: June 01, 2005, 02:27:17 PM »
Hi My name is Jenn and I'll be starting at Golden Gate in the Fall of 2005 p/t (assuming I can get the aid to get in -- not sure if I have any viable co-signers).

I am really excited to be going to law school...

Anyone else attending now or planning to in the Fall.... lets do the roll call things and meet our new neighbors:)

Financial Aid / SCHOLARSHIP $ In June, It Happens
« on: June 24, 2005, 03:59:15 PM »
Just had to share,

Golden Gate just sent me a letter(dated June 22nd) and they awarded me a $11,500 merit scholarship. I had already applied for all my loans and everything...just goes to show that there still is a chance even this late in the game!

Happy Weekend!!


Financial Aid / Not Great Credit but didn't need a co-signer
« on: June 18, 2005, 03:34:24 AM »
Hey everyone. Just wanted to share that I have ok credit(close to a 640) and with access I was able to get a private loan w/ out a co-signer.... not their best rate....

But I was so dreading trying to find a cosigner, I don't care....

So, for those of you who are running late in the applying stage, don't just assume if you don't have stellar credit that you'll need a cosigner....


Financial Aid / Can you change estimated rent to real rent rates...
« on: June 01, 2005, 12:43:54 PM »
I am going To Golden Gate in the fall. They estimated student budget allows 13,500 for 9 months of rent.... but(I have four children and a husband) so we are renting a 4 bedroom house at 2100 a month.... Anyone know if I can get the amount adjusted for real life or not?? Do I just call the f.a  office?? Do I need to wait for my award ppwk (supposed to be arriving in next two weeks)....


I appreciate it!

I was hoping to get to know some other Golden Gate 1Ls before school starts....

Anyone going to the admitted student reception on June 17th?
