Not sure. My housing assignment just completely disappeared 2 hours after I received it yesterday. I tried to contact them but I never heard anything back. This morning I received a new housing assignment without any explanation from them as to what happened.

I talked to Juliana today and she said the same thing, that the lottery had already begun. Good luck guys!

Still just "received by UAH" here... thought my days of status check were over

Same here. I'm wondering if my semi-complicated request means that I'll wait a little longer than the rest of you.

I'm glad we have somewhere to channel our excess status-checking energy!

Hey guys. Do you get an email when your housing app's been approved?

Hoping we all find out where we'll be by the end of the week, though!

What are loan applications? I completed MPN and Columbia's Federal Direct Loan Request Form. Is there more?

What happens if we can't get those forms in until the end of this week? We can still get the loans, right, it just might be processed slower?

I have no idea. I'd contact financial aid. Everyone wants your money, I doubt it means you won't get loans (which for most people would mean no CLS).

I'm behind the 8 on this.

I just do the MPN on studentloans.gov, then send in the 1-page fed. direct loan request form Columbia sent?

Like I said above, you have to do an MPN for stafford, an MPN for PLUS (if you are using both of them)
