Anyone know when we'll get our loan reference number? b/c I need to give this to my endorser for cosigning.

The Sports Law club's fantasy leagues have been mentioned multiple times, and let's not forget that Chicago is the home of The League. I don't think any of us will be lacking for options 8)

We can't open it for another 3 hours so this is just speculation, but if its the actual loan award then it should be taking into consideration scholarship awards (since legally you can't take out more than the COA minus scholarships). So they may be holding off on giving final loan awards to ppl that are still negotiating scholarships.

I didnt get one either. Is this going to include just govt loans or scholarships from NWern?


Are ya'll still negotiating/waiting to hear back on aid? If so, that might be the reason you didn't get the email.

What, you think this is some TTT fantasy league?

In all seriousness, I'd be okay with a 14 team league but anything larger would be way too much.

Anything over 12 gets kind of stupid IMO. Injuries to anyone in your first few rounds become completely unrecoverable.

I attempted to negotiate and got shot down. So maybe this means they're reconsidering? Haha jk wishful thinking. I'm sure I'll get it soon.

So I'm looking at the explanation and estimate of costs. It allots $2,610 for "personal" expenses, which I'm interpreting to mean food and general living expenses (anything from toiletries to cat litter). Spread out over 9 months, that's under $300 a month. Now, I've been gainfully employed for a few years now and am used to a certain standard of living consistent with having disposable income, but does that seem worryingly low to you guys? I mean, assuming you use all of it for food, that's still like $9/day, which will get me a Big Mac for dinner, some crackers for lunch, and that's pretty much it.

Anyone with more experience with loans care to explain how this all works?

isn't "room and board" a category? Board=food.

Well the important number to look at is the total COL monthly allowance, which is about $2,940 for the first year ($26,460/9). I don't think that number is too low to realistically cover us.

TIL what the "board" in "room and board" stands for. :oops:

It's still a really tight fit when you factor in the post-rent remnant of room and board, but not absurdly so anymore. Sigh, being a poor student again is going to be a culture shock.
