Two things.  First, I'm also planning on attending the ASW in a few days, so chances are I might meet some of you.  Nice.  I'll be arriving by car, will probably arrive around 3-4 PM, and I'm staying with a friend at Harvard UG. 

Second, while we're on the topic of deferred enrollment and financial aid packages...I'm definitely deferring until 2009 and have not yet applied for financial aid.  Is it all right for me to wait till next year to file the FAFSA and all related documents, or am I supposed to apply this year as well?

As a general rule, you're only required to apply for finaid for the year in which you intend on receiving aid.  However, I think you should just apply this year to see what you can expect for next year.

I'm going this weekend too! I'm incredibly excited.

I still haven't finished my financial aid forms however and am freaking out. I'm hating my parents' accountant at the moment.  >:(

Does anybody have any idea of what sort of financial aid people generally get? They don't even give an example on their website making it tough to estimate.

It's there. 

Also, according to LSAC, the average grant recipient got ~$14k last year.

I'll be done with my brief this weekend, woo woo woo, so if anyone wants to hang out, I will possibly consider it if you buy me a fancy beer. I will also spill all the secrets I know. Which are not many. But are some.

Does anyone know when the housing applications are due, if we want to live in the dorms?

Also, do we have to live in the dorms if we enter the lottery?
