+1 filling out the Need Access took all of one night = I didn't go to work the next day from exhaustion. I also had to call my UG to find out the total amount of grant/scholarship I got while attending since I graduated a few years ago and the person on the phone was nice enough to calculate it for me lol.

Oh god, there was a question about UG schoarships? Shit, I do not remember that AT ALL. :?

Okay, I reviewed my completed NeedAccess app and it only asked for aid from 2011-12. Since I graduated in 2002, I think I'm safe!


well damn. i guess i filled it out incorrectly lol this is what happens when i spend more time on an app than on my LSAT :?

Uuuuhhhhh.... I'm pretty sure there was a question about total grants and loans from UG, evenif. It wasn't last year. Crap. Now I need to check.

Ugh.
Maybe it asks different questions according to your answers to other questions? Because I'm looking at my pdf right now and there's no total UG aid question. I'm gonna go back through the online form.

I know it asks different questions depending on schools. Maybe that was something for Vandy or Cornell or somewhere and not for NU.

It must be something like that. I'm going through the online form and I'm (thank god) not seeing anything. Maybe NU doesn't ask because most students have been out of school for at least a year.

Yeah, I don't remember that question either, so it might be for a different school.

yes, i checked mine and it did include a question regardless of when you graduated, but I also included GULC and Michigan on my needaccess so this might be the case. i graduated in 2009, btw :lol:

Me too! ::high five::

I've tried to purge all this financial aid stuff from my memory. Yecch. But I vaguely remember this question and having to figure out how much I got from Stafford in 2005-2006. I do appreciate that Northwestern doesn't ask for parent information though.

Anyone in the Facebook group? I tried joining a couple of weeks ago but won't get approved. Wondering if it's only me?

They approve people to the group in waves, they probably just haven't gotten around to doing it in a while (:

Lemon told me to bring her ham all day every day. Then she made me go stand in a corner for eating her sandwich.

Also, all my birds are ill. And I have to windex Tracy Jordan's pet iguana.

Don't forget you need to call up Kelsey Grammer to cover up a murder.

And you're probably still tired from filling in for Leap Day William.

I'm also not sure why I was invited to Diversity ASW...although it may be because I associated with the Hill People as a child...in the 1600s- *cough cough* - recent times.

I do believe the Hill People are URMs.

I love how on twitter and G+ Johann mentions dumb things people do.

Which one of you were mentioned in this tweet? lol

Has anyone RSVPed for ASW? Did anyone say they were interested in the housing tour on Friday morning before ASW stuff starts? I am only reluctant because signup to sit in on a class at 10:30 is first come/first serve and we'd be getting back to campus barely in time to make it.

Yes to both. That didn't even occur to me, how many people are there supposed to be at this event? I could see the Criminal Law and Intl Criminal Law getting filled up, but the rest of the classes seem to have a bit of space.

I didn't sign up for the housing tour, primarily because none of the places toured allows dogs. :|

Well that makes an easy decision for you!
I probably won't go on the tour, just because I'll be staying until Tuesday to do apartment hunting anyway.
