I assume you've already created your CNet, did you use your SSN as your ID?

It is sluggish at best. Each page may take over a minute to load, but will initially have a blank white page... tricky stuff and feels a bit archaic, ha ha.

yes and yes. I'm on my.uchicago.edu, head to the finances tab, try to select "My Financial Aid", can't do anything after that

It feels good to have my MalReynolds@uchicago.edu address. I think I'll enjoy that for a while before I sign up for student loans.

I apologize for the confusion; I thought you were talking about setting up the account. Here is where I am at:
1. Go to --LinkRemoved--
2. Log in
3. Go to the "Finances" tab and select "Financial Quick Links" from the drop-down menu.
4. Choose "Loans/Financial Aid" and then "My Financial Aid"

Now this is when I receive an awesome "your login failed. We could not validate your Student ID." in the "log in" box.
Is this where you are at?

+1 to all of that. At least I'm not the only one. I'll try again in the morning

Seems to be working now

ETA: "In how many courses do you expect to enroll in Autumn?" Anybody have an answer to that? Same for Winter and Spring

ETA2: This form is a nightmare

My SSN finally began working overnight.

Petty grievance, I wish our emails were @law.uchicago.edu.

Isn't law school notorious for listserv barf? That's my main motivation for using XMail, though I'm sure Gmail savvy folks could effectively filter law related stuff from personal stuff.

Also, just applied for max federal loans. Hoping I don't come to regret this. I guessed 4 courses in each season except summer. Crap, it just occurred to me that I used last year's budget as my guideline.

I would probs walk up to a mile to save a dollar. I guess if we take that as a round-trip, that means my time is worth less than $1.50/hour to myself.

Hm, that's pretty bad.

Have thought about that a few times myself! When are you headed that way, kappycaft1?

I'll be moving in at the very beginning of July.

I fortunately found a renovated 1BR with pretty much the shittiest view ever in Regents (which means it is super cheap but still comes with all the new stuff), which I'm pretty stoked about. :D


Nice! It looks like you, LSATSCORES 2012, and I will all be getting there at more or less the same time. Someone else, too, although I forget who.
