W&L and W&M Financial Aid Packages
« on: March 21, 2005, 05:11:12 PM »
Got my finalized financial aid awards from both schools today.  Merit awards I already knew about plus loan eligibility.  Damn, W&M sure is cheap.   :-\

Both were via USPS.  No need-based aid in either place (so the only news was in loan eligibility).  I forget when I heard about the merit award from W&M.  Seems like it was a few weeks after I was admitted... the date should be in my LSN profile.

EDIT:  It was 1/24, which turns out to be less than a week after I was admitted.

Those are both absolultely terrific schools (though W & L is a better environment IMHO).  I think your awards are both generous.  Congrats on your achievements!

towanda, my numbers twin!!

Nothing but loans from W&M, which sucks when your EFC is 467.  They are getting a withdrawal tomorrow or the day after.

That's really bizarre.  Where are you thinking at this point?

Money means a lot to me.  I'd like to only practice with a firm for as long as it takes to pay off my loans then either go into politics or do solo work.

Probably W&L at this point, though Emory is meeting on $$ this week.

I was T14 obsessed [really hoped for umich, Cornell, or NU (since they were actually possible)] earlier in the process, but now financial aid means more to me than school rank, within reason.  Barring needaccess having Cornell hook me up, I don't think it's likely I'll pass W&L up.  I liked it a lot this past weekend.

How about you?
