Khaki pants, blue blazer, bow tie, gelled hair, and intellectual glasses = the ultimate rigor outfit

This is pretty much our uniform at UChi, so don't let us down.

Or a hoody and baseball cap, whatever you want.

I got it via email, yes. And I'm ED. What suprised me is that they offered me a loan package of 69 thousand to cover computer allowance, health insurance, etc. I wonder if I can not accept some of that money or what.

They said in chat Rubensteins would free up other scholarship funds!

Last year people in my range got $0, $30k, $45k, or $60k (and I think maybe a $75k was in there somewhere.) SO MUCH VARIATION.

Edit: thanks for the info, dude!

No scholarship but they are generous enough to let me take out 69k in loans!

Anyone know when financial aid info came out last year for non-EDers? I suppose we can't expect this year to follow the pattern but still

Edit: they should include that date on LSN

Maybe they're just doing EDers finaid right now?

After I got the email I gave some money to a homeless guy on the street...I'm building karma for when that's me in 4 years.

Who's going to ASW? And is anyone staying Saturday night? Looks like things go later on Saturday, contemplating the extra night.

I know. I didn't apply to NYU. I should have but I didn't.
