I'll be there too! I'm living in a Feil Hall 3-bedroom, the hot new apartment building.

95% sure that I'll be going to Brooklyn (unless Boston College or Cornell admit me off their waitlists).

I recieved my financial package from Brooklyn a few weeks, which consisted primarily of loans aside from the merit scholarship. $18,500 in stafford loans (8,500 subsized, 10,000 unsubsidized)  and $2,000 in perkins loans.

I also recieved an e-mail from Jennifer Smith informing me I was assigned a triple in Feil Hall (which was surprising and a bit unwelcomed considering I had only requested singles). However they are really playing up these apartments so I'm assuming they will be really nice.

I'm in Feil and managed to pull off a 1 bedroom.  I was actually surprised at the number of 2,3, and 4 bedrooms they put in the building... they're really trying to make Feil like undergrad part 2, huh?   :o



EDIT: Just got off the BU waitlist.  Try to steal my 1BR if you can.  ;)

UH OH, this can't be good. When exactly did you get your financial aid reward letter from them? I filed the FAFSA and their personal app a while ago and now i'm wondering if I screwed up or maybe it was sent here and thrown out by someone. ???

The letter is dated April 25th, and I had all the forms in just by their deadline.
