Do you remember how soon you hears whether or not you were approved for the loan after you applied?


I don't remember. You will not be denied for grad plus loans, unless you've defaulted on existing loans or destroyed your credit in truly spectacular fashion.

On the financial aid forum the sense I was getting was that we should wait for our school to tell us it's time to apply and give us any special instructions we might need. I just started to get nervous that I shouldn't be waiting for that, so I logged on to the Grad PLUS loan application site, but they also say to get instructions from our school because the school might have a direct application set up. So, are most people waiting or moving ahead?

I received an email a few weeks ago at my Mich email. Did you check that?

And yeah, the instructions are kind of Mich specific, oddly enough. There are some steps you have to do before you apply on the PLUS site.

Whoop whoop, TLS comes through again! I've been trying to check my michigan email through Wolverine Access for a while, then failing (because that's not where it is), then shrugging and giving up. I just found the right place to access it and yeah, I've got that email from three weeks ago in there... Man I would have been screwed otherwise. Maybe law school isn't for me after all :(

Good to know. I was a little worried because I don't really have much of a credit history to speak of, having not taken out any student loans for undergrad, never having bought a car or house, and never having had a credit card (I know it's weird).

I promise you, anyone that can eat a slice of pizza bought in a liquor store and live to tell the tale can make it through law school!

I saw a lot of gross stuff during my career but liquor store pizza? that's crossing a line.

I am so sad that I never stayed in Michigan. I heard that they had the best Law Schools there. I was not able to stay there unfortunately. Don't hate me cause I am jealous. I cannot help it.

I never remembered to check the @umich emails, so I just set the account to automatically forward to my Gmail.

I have mine so I can send stuff with my umich account from my gmail account. There is a how to file somewhere on how to do that but it is way better than the Maize thing and both come to one place and I can send from both too.

I mean the Diag Party Store, or whatever it's called. The one right by Ashley's. With pizza that has, by all accounts, probably been sitting there since the morning after we last went to the Rose Bowl.

Yup, that'd be the place. Though, Excellence lived to tell the tale and seemed to enjoy the pizza at the time, so no harm, no foul?

haha, I ate the pizza at Diag a bunch on late nights. It's really not bad, especially when it's fresh (occasionally). Better than the crap NYPD place.

I also say this as a New Yorker who knows good pizza pretty well.

Yeah, it was freaking delicious. And I live next to a pretty solid Brooklyn pizza joint.

Did any of the entering 1L's buy season football tickets for the upcoming football season? :P
I definitely do not want to be the only 1L surrounded by 2Ls and 3Ls during football games :)

I did! I think there will be a lot of us at the games. Besides, don't forget that 110,000+ of your closest friends will be there too.
