Law School Admissions / Re: Boalt Fin. Aid App

hmm on second though the graduate opportunity fellowship could be this: Boalt Hall Fellowships
Boalt Hall Fellowships are fund by UC Berkeley's Graduate Division and awarded on the basis of merit to cover fees. Boalt Hall Fellowships are awarded to first-year students and are renewable.  Though I dunno why they'd consider how many siblings you have if it's just merit-based. Guess I'll send a new one in just to be safe.

I saw it as Berkeley's one page form of the Need Access thing since you have to put in your parents' income. I didn't even fill out the bottom part, since I knew that once they saw my parents' info I'd be outta luck.

lol- yeah i know we're all stressed about not hearing from sls so we're automatically leery of somehow who claims to have heard when no one else has, but if he's lying, it's a bit random, and at least he's not really taking a seat from one of us :) and if not, we ought to give props to anyone who missed the first round of dings and then got in, as it presumably bodes well for a few of the rest of us.

Financial Aid / Re: FAFSA, aren't we all independent?
« on: January 30, 2006, 10:30:40 AM »
it seems that this parent info/no parent info question applies only to need access, not to fafsa, at least for my main schools:

Penn: As a graduate school applicant you are considered independent under federal guidelines and are only required to complete the student sections on the FAFSA.

Michigan: # If you were declared or were eligible to be declared as a dependent on your parents' tax returns in any of the years from 2000-2004, you must complete all sections of the Need Access including the parent questionnaire.
# Both parents' data must be provided unless your parents have been divorced for more than five years. If they have been divorced for more than five years, only the more custodial parent should submit the required information.
# If you have NOT been declared as a dependent in all the years from 2000-2004, complete only the student and spouse sections of the Need Access.

Boalt: no info

UVA: no direct info, though it does say this: The Federal Central Processor may select some financial aid applications for verification. If your application is selected for audit, you will be asked to provide signed copies of your (and your spouse's, if appropriate) federal tax forms, W-2 forms, or other financial documents to compare with information on the financial aid application.

could be wrong, but that's how I've been doing it so far.

Nothing like Jwilcox 180, but Stanford just dinged my 170.

I expected it, but, man, that first ding stings!!!!

Sorry to hear it.

What was your GPA?  I'm curious to see if the pattern holds.

I think jwilcox broke the pattern- he was above the 3.5 mark- a bit depressing
