I got my fin aid notification-- and I feel fortunate to have gotten the award they gave me.

Did any of the rest of you modify the suggested budget?  I know that the current students have mentioned that you can get increases on your budget for living expenses, etc., but I am wondering if this is the way to do it.

I'd like to know this too.  My rent is expensive and, despite their thinking to the contrary, I don't have any money, so I need to modify my budget to get more coin.

Here's my dilemma... My parents haven't filed their taxes yet. I talked to their accountant (my friend's dad) and he said they're filing for an extension like they did last year so they won't be filing until September. I don't know why, but that's what they do. I emailed Penn to see if their 2006 returns and W2s from this year would suffice instead b/c nothing has really changed for them but being the weekend I haven't heard back. Anyone else been in this situation? Do you think they'll accept this instead?

Hey, for those of you into IP/technology/entertainment law, check out Penn IP Group's new blog:  http://pipgblog.blogspot.com/

Hopefully that will get some of you newbies excited about LS (and help get us indexed in Google!).  It's amazing how many great events students put together every year.   :)

I sent an email asking about this, among other things.  I'll report back when I get a response.
