I called on Monday and they were really nice and said they'd get it to me soon, but to call on Friday if I hadn't heard anything. So, I called today at like 1:00 EST and some older lady kind of snapped at me and said pretty much "we'll get to it when we get to it".

This wouldn't be that much of an issue if I didn't have a lot of potential landlords on the line :?


I met with Patina today and she told me to call wed (sounds like the same deal) if I hadn't heard yet. I would try calling again Monday and ask to speak with her before asking (assuming she's the one you met with). She said they're rapidly rolling out fin. aid decisions now.


I saw this^^ and decided I'd give it a shot today--I had no idea my file was ready.


Nice play though--mind PMing me your digits?

So... would a honda civic be able to survive the snow?

My guess is no. Tits.

^Ditto. I have this awful feeling that I'm gonna be screwed out of like $30k because I didn't get one more question right on the LSAT.

Ah, my 90k from Cornell pushed Michigan to offer me 60k. I think that's the end of my cycle folks.

Good luck to those awaiting financial aid!

I know Hughes has the dining hall open 10-2 M-F, but what do students in Hughes do for dinner and on the weekends? Dining hall meal plan, order out, or cook for themselves?

Mostly order out/cook in the kitchen. I don't know anyone that is on any of the campus meal plans.

There's just one kitchen right? Does it get packed at all? Clearly, food is important to me.

Yes and not at all, unless someone is preparing an elaborate meal which rarely happens.

I've already ruined too much of the surprises that come with acceptances, I think I'm just going to wait for them to mail it; but it's nice to know that the offers have started.

What did you need to send in? I sent in FAFSA and the needaccess thing. Did we need to do anything else?

They also have an institutional form and need copes of your tax returns and your parents' tax returns.

--LinkRemoved--

The form was due March 15th, but I'm not sure whether that's a "hard" deadline. Just send it in as soon as possible is my recommendation.

Ugh!

Apparently from their website the institutional form was only required to be considered for "institutional grants". What are those!??!

I'm so mad. I submitted all of the FAFSA+Needbased+Tax info in February...

Pretty sure those are Cornell-based grants/scholarships. So if you are eligible for any need based or merit based aid from Cornell, that's what it's under...

Well I emailed them but I'll call tomorrow...I hope I get some good news if not it's time to jump...

Edit: Even if they accept the forms I have a feeling it will backfire on me since they might see me as lazy and incompetent.

Received award via e-mail per phone request (probably outing myself, but I have nothing to hide)... happy. Not ecstatic, but happy. Best of luck to everyone.
