No Financial Aid Info Yet

Postby shephrdpie » Tue Mar 30, 2010 2:59 pm

Hey Folks,

I monitor this site fairly regularly and have heard a lot of people talking about comparing different financial offers from law schools. I have not heard anything yet about scholarships or financial aid from any of my schools. I have been accepted to NYU, Penn, Georgetown, BC, Duke and Fordham, with the earliest acceptance dating back to late January. I filed my FAFSA and NeedAccess forms in early February (and received my SAR sometime shortly after) and have filled out all school-specific forms immediately after admission. I am starting to grow concerned that I have not received any information whatsoever from these schools about financial aid packages. Are other people having similar experiences? Should I be worried or is this standard? I appreciate any information or advice that people might have.

THANKS!

Schools are just starting to distribut financial aid money. I just got some from Miami (I won't be going there) and I just called LSU and the financial aid person said they will be sending out their notification next week. Each school is different but I wouldn't go nuts yet.
