No one has positive rep on this site that I've found.I have -3 and only 23 posts.I honestly take it as a compliment, I think most of the posters in the regular forum are awful human beings.No one seems open to other points of view. It's pretty ridiculous.
P.P.S. Jess, rather than get a hotel, you can save a bundle of cash by doing a short term sublet somewhere in SD. First week in July in SD, you are gonna get robbed or be so far away that it isn't worth it.
I live in San Diego right now. Most of the locator services are bunk. You'd probably have an easier time finding something off of Craigslist.The only places that have those services are the beach areas for luxury rentals. probably a bit out of reach with no scholarship money!

You'd probably have an easier time finding something off of Craigslist.The only places that have those services are the beach areas for luxury rentals. probably a bit out of reach with no scholarship money!Speaking of scholarship money, I just got a $16,000 nonrenewable scholarship from USD! I'm so excited. I guess my problems are over now. I won't be renting anything expensive though, still going for a room in a house so that I can keep my dog. I'm thrilled to be able to afford USD. That work study wasn't going to happen since I'm not about to kill my law school grades. I didn't even know I was being considered for money but I'm glad that they gave me some. I sent USD an e-mail asking them to match my McGeorge offer but they never responded. I then called and visited twice only to receive my financial aid offer with only loans and work study. So it was weird to receive a large scholarship out of the blue because I thought that I had no chance. Maybe someone else will receive a late scholarship as well.
That a baby, Roman! USD was able to help me out too and I remember the feeling when I got their revised offer. Congrats. I guess we'll be seeing you in the fall then. Hopefully, more people will get money and that won't be a factor in anyone turning USD (37k is completely ridiculous).
Wholly crap! Roman that is awesome!!!! I just opend my mailbox and found a scholarship offer for $14,000/yr renewable. That totally helps me out. I was completely surprised that it would be so much, especially since I am going part time. The stipulation is that I have to continue to show financial need every year, and since I will be working full time I probably wont be able to prove that. At least I get it for the first year! It pays to ask USD for some money.Again, congrats Roman!Edit: It is actually not a scholarhsip, it is a poor person's grant. Woohoo just the same!
Congrats on your grant! I received the USD School of Law Honor Scholarship so it's not based on being poor even though I am. It's too bad that it's not renewable but I'm sure that if I do well then I won't have any problems getting more aid. Are you going to be able to work full time and still do well in law school? I'm not taking the work study USD offered because I want to focus exclusively on law school but I'm going full time so there is going to be more schoolwork. Was your offer dated April 26th?
