Jenny I am so freaking out about this money its ridiculous. I need to be focused on this job that...uh...pays me money...but all I can think about is financing UVA.

And of course the excitement on the way. I'll be there Friday too--can't wait. Although I am a bit nervous, after looking at how some of yall have posted 1000+ times I can't help but feel out of the loop...at least I'm in the debt club??

I hear ya. My dad texted me saying there's a letter in the mail but I am not expecting anything with my #'s + ED. My only consolation is "at least i'm paying in-state."

I took tomorrow and Friday off to attend the ASW. :D


YES on the jittery. I'm not too productive today. Took tomorrow off as a travel day so I'll be running home to pack in ~3 hours. I can't believe March 27 is almost here.

That's awesome!! Its because you're Trujillo's twin lol. Since UVA is one of the few schools we may both end up at, I hope you make that decision soon :P

edited: realized i actually typed Wu instead of Trujillo (my real life mispronunciation issues transferred to type fml)

Got my letter in the mail--$60,000. With that I can finally say I am officially 100% going to be attending UVA in the fall. Having a good time at the ASD this week will just be icing on the cake.

Got offered $75K. Question. Does this scholarship preclude need-based aid (grants)? On the letter, it states that "If you are also applying for loan assistance, you will receive a financial aid package from the Financial Aid Office via the University's Student Information Student, recapping the amount of your scholarship and detailing the amounts and types of need-based assistance available to you." It sounds like I can still get need-based grants, but I just find it a bit odd, considering the other scholarship offers I've received (Mich, NU) either preclude need-based grants or have already included any need-based grants I may receive into their offer. Does anyone know for sure?

Though I'm still undecided about where to attend, I had thought I'd at least narrowed my options down to staying in-state (so as to not live apart from my husband, etc).

That is, until I got my merit aid letter from UVA today.

World is upside down again: possibilities contemplated for the what seems to be the thousandth time in the past six months...

I still haven't gotten any kind of letter and I'm in VA... weird. But anyway, when are they sending out financial aid info? Is need based aid included in the scholarship letters out today or is it included in the financial aid package later? I doubt I would get anything merit based but I am hoping for some need based.

The letters that went out today include only merit-based aid. From the second paragraph: "If you are applying for loan assistance, you will receive a financial aid package from the Financial Aid Office via the University's Student Information System detailing the amounts and types of need-based assistance available to you."

Same here - I'm not sure if I'll get merit aid (probably not, but I'm just borderline enough to get my hopes up). Although...I think I might up made the moronic mistake of changing my address from my parents' house to my European address. Let's just saying that mailing a letter to Europe takes considerably longer than mailing one from C-Ville to Richmond. What was I thinking? UVA should rescind my acceptance just for that.

soooo, how is UVA with negotiating $$$? Michigan coughed up 30k so I was hoping to get something from UVA, but my letter says nada.

Last year UVA claimed they wouldn't negotiate at all, and also that if your offer seems lower than that from other schools factor in that it's cheaper to live here and you'll see that their lower offer is basically the same cost. Just FYI...

$75 K from UVA today. Yay!!! I do not see a date on this letter, so does that mean we just have to accept the scholarship by sending in a deposit by 4/30?? If so, that is much nicer than having to decide by 4/15 or so like some other scholarships.

That's discouraging, I suppose they factor in in-state tuiton as well.

That's exactly how our conversation went, "I don't look like him. Wait, do you think he's good looking?! Well then, ok."
