Is there anyone else who doesn't plan on getting a physical? I don't have a doctor or health insurance.

Me. I called and they said though they recommended you get one before coming, it wouldn't prevent you from getting registered for classes. I have the same problem of being between the undergrad health plan and the yale one.

Yeah, I'll get one when I get there. I'm not made of money, and their health plan is expensive enough lol.  Not that I don't appreciate the fact that the school offers one.

tuition has gone up almost 3k--welcome to Yale!

Ouch.

Boo to that. So I may be 110K in debt, instead of 100K when I graduate.  :-[

Yeah, I am hoping I can work something out.  I wanted to do paid employment in the summer and school year, but then I thought that it counted against your scholarships and not loans.  I'm gonna need to work something out...

paid employment in the summer does unfortunately.  I don't think they pay attention to paid employment in the school year.

Hmmm well maybe I can do paid employment in the school year to take care of some living expenses. Maybe I'll try to be a TA or something my second year.

TAing an undergraduate course can be good money.  I heard last year it was 8800 for two sections, 7700 for a writing intensive section, and 4400 for a normal section.  I know of some 1Ls who started teaching their second semester.

Has anyone heard back from either the YLS Financial Aid office or from your chosen lender after submitting all of that info to Yale like a month ago?

Just wondering, 'cause I haven't heard from Bank of America yet.

No, I haven't really heard from my lender or Yale fin. aid. I did e-mail them a question, and they haven't gotten back to me. So they probably are either out of the office this week or swamped.  I did get the e-bill though, and it reflected the loans that I am taking out.

thanks. guess i shouldn't start worrying yet.

maybe I should actually read the e-bill, though.
