How did y'all receive your financial aid packets? By mail? Email? See it online? And when?

I received a scholarship notification about a month ago but nothing further. Starting to freak out a little...

Priority deadline was Feb 15th. And I know the merit scholarships can affect your need-based aid so that is a possible explanation.

Your COA is tuition and living expenses combined. It should be about $38k if you have in-state tuition. Here's a link with a breakdown jw.

I'm wearing one of the three right now :D

Yeah, weather was awesome, hit 6th street hard, caught a crawfish boil and country concert saturday afternoon and was generally in love with the laid back, super friendly folks in Austin.

And I want a free tee too.
