Was there. They said they wanted to do it ASAP, especially if you were admitted earlier (they insinuated we were more valuable to them, though I don't know if that is just talk for ASW). However, it's hard for me to see them being able to give awards (which are partly based on who else is in the class) until the end of this month given the deadline.


That's not what was insinuated at all. They said they were going to start sending offers within the next two weeks, and that that for later admits financial aid offers would continue to be released into April. Keep in mind, some people were just accepted today. It's not that they don't value those people, they just have a long list of financial aid offers to process and release, so people that get in later will hear later.


Sorry, I may be confusing what was in that talk as compared with my direct interactions with the office.

Didn't get to talk to the financial aid office for a 1 on 1 during ASD, was it anything special?

Just a chance to ask any personal financial aid questions 1 on 1.

Don't know if anyone has started the search for housing yet but I'm helping out my landlord and figured someone may be interested in renting my apartment. Its in an ideal location for a pretty solid price, feel free to pm if you're interested.

I still won't make up my mind until $ comes out...but I've absolutely loved it here the past two days. Everyone is incredibly nice & the campus is beautiful. I've been impressed by everything I've seen.


Glad to hear it, Olive. I hope they show you the money!! Have you any pictures to share? This also extends to anyone else on TLS who visited past weekend. I will vicariously live through pictures until my visit next month. :mrgreen:

I will get pics up soon!

BTW did you all receive any confirmation when you submitted your financial aid stuff? I never did and since the deadline is tomorrow I'm kind of nervous they may not have received it... I sent everything to the financial aid email address.

I asked for confirmation of receipt when I sent it by email. They emailed me back to confirm receipt.

FWIW, I did not receive one. I should probably do what AAJD did, though...

It's just the Financial Aid Information sheet that needs to be filled out to be considered for merit aid, right?

Yeah I was also paranoid about them actually getting my financial aid stuff. I sent an email just to confirm and they sent back "Received!" so I wouldn't worry too much about bothering them haha.

Wow! The library looks so stately with lots of history. It reminds me of Cambridge/Oxford. :)

Thanks for sharing. Is there any more ??

A book about Ithaca and the acceptance letter came in the mail today, but no updates relating to a scholarship.

Yeah that's Uris. More specifically it's the A.D. White Library within Uris. The useful thing about Uris proper is that it's open 24 hours a day during the week in case you feel the need to pull an all-nighter and/or are nocturnal.
