Any financial aid offers from Columbia yet?
« on: April 20, 2005, 04:38:43 PM »
If so....how were they? I'm talking about need based aid, not merit. ( I think CLS does not give merit aid, right?? Besides a few full scholarships??)
Oh, sweetheart, you don't need law school. Law school is for people who are boring and ugly and serious!

MariCutie I am so jealous of you. I think columbia showered you with money, well at least by their standards. Have you decided to go to stanford or are you still considering columbia?

Yeah, they were pretty good about it, actually. I don't think sending them all my other offers helped any, though, because all of the money they gave me was need-based. At this point, though, I still think stanford was either the same price or slightly (like, $8K) less than columbia ... and it's warm over there in Cali. :)

Has anyone found a compelling reason not to use Access Group as your stafford loan lender? it seems like they've got the best deal for cls students...right?  ???
