Is anyone else scrambling to get financial aid forms in today to at see what will happen (even though I know fin aid is not the greatest in law school... :roll: )?


I am! I need need access and fafsa a few weeks back and thought I was done, but a lot of schools have additional forms, etc. And they all want things faxed or mail which is just ugh!


Must the additional forms be submitted before one is accepted?

Generally, they don't have to be, but I think it depends on the school. Also, I'd say look them over in advance, just to make sure it won't take you too much time to submit once you are accepted.

I wasn't before the scholarship, but I am now... However, it'll have to be April.

Weird, we got the same scholarship from Vandy, but I got WL'ed by NW. To be fair, you have much better WE while I'm K-JD and I couldn't do an interview, so all else considered, I'm lucky to be WLed instead of dinged in the first place.

I'm still waiting on Cornell & Duke so who knows what could happen.
