:whistles:


Don't mean to be nosy, but if you don't mind me asking did you negotiate that up or was it an initial offer? Do you know if Cornell is responsive to negotiations?

I was able to negotiate. But it was a very very slight increase (however the offer was from a lower ranked school).

Were you needs based? Or was it 100% merit?

My offer came after I'd informed them of my Fordham, WUSTL, Cardozo, and Illinois offers. So you could argue that's negotiating.

And it's possible it's part need.

Do we need to send in all fin. aid docs before we are reviewed for merit based aid? I've done the fafsa, but what about tax return and the Cornell info sheet?

There was an email that went out yesterday that explained all this. Check your spam folder?

Anyone know what meal plan options there are, if any. Or are we left to our own devices when it comes to food :|

It's good if you live in Hughes, there are 6 dining halls within 5 min of a walk. If you don't live in Hughes, it's probably not the best idea.

Alas, I think I will be going to the April ASW... $600 plane ticket for March vs $450 for April... not that either of those choices are stellar and I think the max subsidy I can get is $175

Exactly why I'm going April and not March.

I got a phone call from admissions yesterday mentioning that we couldl RSVP and fill out a subsidy form via the status checker but I see no such thing


Going to the march one! I filled out the travel subsidy form. Do we buy our tickets, then get reimbursed? Or use the subsidy to purchase?


I received a $100 travel subsidy, and was told to pick up a Visa gift card upon check-in. I'm not sure if that's how all the subsidies work, though.

Yeah, I'll still go. I'm combining the ASD with a trip out to NYC to visit some friends anyway.

I got in, but now I'm not so sure I want to go to law school at all. (BTW, I have no other good career options otherwise)

Convince me. Or you can tell me how I'm a whiny ungrateful little bitch. Or do both, I'd prefer both.

Not sure because of? Money? The idea of large firm work? Something else?

Soooo, has anyone started seriously looking into housing? I haven't joined the Facebook group yet because I'm still deciding between schools, but are people talking about it on there?

No, I was thinking about starting a convo about housing but still weighing whether or not I'm willing to live w/ a stranger...last thing I need to add to general 1L stress is someone who gets on my nerves :)

Me too! I was initially thinking a 1bd/studio or bust, but it looks like a lot more options would open up with 2-3 beds apts and houses. But yeah, I too am scared of getting stuck with a slob or weirdo...haha
