These random move in dates are freakin me out also, either so early or so late wtf? I would call, people have told me they really wanna be accommodating to law students but I personally have no idea on this subject, seems kinda ludicrous to force people to move in and pay rent for an extra two months, not to mention that's only a month away to figure out all your stuff.

BTW did u just get the email recently? Cuz that would suggest they are still there...


I got the email around 2:30 and just tried calling, but no one was there. And yeah, I'm freaking out about this move-in date as well.

Anyone know if W 115th comes with air conditioning, and what was the verdict on swapping beds out?

I think the verdict was probably not possible, sadly, for much if any of the furniture.

It's absurd that they expect adult people to sleep in twin/full beds. I know we'll be law students but does that have to mean that we won't have personal lives/sleep... or at the very least a hook up once in a while?

Still at received. I just noticed too that the date on mine is may 2 when I know I submitted on April 30. Is that weird?

Well, aw students don't exactly have the best reputation in terms of attractiveness (although I'm sure you are all very sexy :P)

Yeah, but it's all relative, so we will just be less attractive people sleeping with each other. The bottom feeders, if you will. :P

unless you're like 6'4" a full bed should be comfortable enough for 2 people

i got an unfurnished place so i could throw in a queen if necessary, but without a floor plan, i have literally no idea if it would fit

So there was this form that came with my scholarship letter --Federal Direct Loan Request Form, that I never filled out, but I've filled out the MPN online. It doesn't really say anything about this form being required, it mostly just directs you to fill out the MPN, but there's a place for you to indicate how much of the direct and plus loans you want. DId everyone send this in? I'm a little confused as to what purpose it serves.

Nope, but I did send Juliana a note about my preferences on the May 1 and she responded to me on May 2 and said she'd add it to the file - so maybe that was it?

Bottom feeders? I thought Columbia was exclusionary. I thought they went after the cool kids, the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends.

I'm sure you are all being modest...

I think it said that form was required 5/15 with the MPNs on the Important Dates part of the admitted students site.

FWIW I sent that in but haven't done the MPNs yet.

I am trying to log onto the admitted students website to check on this but I think you were required to submit that form by May 15. I might be making this up.

ETA: scooped. Everyone on this forum is so helpful.

Sending in an additional deposit (because I'm deferring--I guess I should make a CLS class of 2017 thread with population: me), I initially made my check out to CLS and had to cross it out to write the name of the university after speaking to the admissions office. Sending it in anyway. I wonder if they'll think it's cash-able. #YOLO

Raise your hand if this grant data form is making you feel woefully inadequate

Also --is anyone in DC and planning to go to the reception in June at the Tabard Inn? I would feel like a fool being the only 0L there, but it's hard to pass up free booze.

*raiseshand*

I actually called them about it last week and they said to try my best to fill it out but that the numbers are not final. They will review it later down the line and if they need to make edits they will tell you about it and send you a new form to fill out and sign with the correct information. Basically just guesstimate how many loans you will need, sign and send. You will fix it later with specifics. Hope this helps.

Wait, what? I believe ph is referring to the "grant data sheet" where you pretty much have to write an autobiography of yourself and your accomplishments/tell them how great you are. There's nothing in there related to actual grants.

I think Aussie was referring to my question above about the federal direct loans request form. But yeah, I look forward to the day when I no longer have to rack my brain for my "interests" and "hobbies" and "leadership activities".
