Going through FinAid office or independantly?
I went through DePaul. I did all the online stuff and mailed in DePaul's supplemental GradPlus form about a week ago. DePaul starts processing that stuff today.
Where'd you find the supplemental gradplus form online? I accepted the Stafford money (they sent an email about it), but when I'd asked about gradplus, they advised me to hold off until now. Did they tell you when to expect the loan money? It goes to them first right? They take out what's missing and send you the rest, correct?
Sidenote, does this mean you're officially going to DePaul? Word back from UC? Planning on throwing a transfer app after 1L?
Sidenote 2, done any reading thus far? I'm running through E&E's Tort Law now. Don't want to waste my summer buried in books (there will be plenty of time for that) but excited to get started and can't help but enjoy reading up on the examples and explanations.
The loan money hits our student accounts the week classes start, and the we get what's left over in a check within a few days, as far as I know. They told me I could submit GradPlus and Stafford loan apps and do all the online forms and counseling but that it could not be processed until June 1st. Oh, the GradPlus form was hard to find and I wouldn't have known it was necessary if I had not have been obnoxious and made the lady on the phone go through the whole process with me haha.http://www.depaul.edu/admission/Financi ... /Forms.asp
I am officially going to DePaul. I'm still on U of C's waitlist and Cornell's reserve, but I'm not expecting anything from either of them. I'm very happy with DePaul, and now I guess I just need to find an apartment. I want to live downtown and I found a place I like, but they want proof of loan approval, so hopefully DePaul will pick up the pace with that!
I have no intention of trying to transfer. My interviewer at U of C mentioned that they take plenty of transfers from UIUC, but she didn't say anything about DePaul/Kent/Loyola. I know I'm going to be happy at DePaul, so I'm not too concerned. I'll have to see what my grades are like. Top 1% and maybe I could pull it off??
I haven't read anything yet. I'm probably going to order the books on that list that DePaul sent us a few weeks ago (particularly 1L of a Ride). I don't know if I want to read E&Es... what do you think of the torts one so far?
Oh, I do plan to read Getting to Maybe though (I don't think that one was on our list)
