Anyone who analogizes the application cycle to a video game is alright in my book.

I figured since I was right around the average debt burden it wouldn't be inappropriate to disclose.

But maybe it was.

And the application cycle has the addictive quality found in many mmo's.

Empty mailbox, yet again. Anyone else who made the 03/14 deadline in the same boat? With all the schollies being posted, I feel so alone (and a bit worried that my finaid app was incomplete... :| )

To be considered for merit aid, all we need to do is send in the Financial Aid Information Sheet, correct? Just making sure I have done what I need to for now.

This clip from The Office is doubly appropriate, given that it includes Andy Bernard from Cornell (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xzv6MAnUo0Q). Yes I love this show as you can tell from my avatar.

Also, sounds like there are some gamers around here, if we end up at Cornell then HMU.

I'll see your NBC comedy clip + video game subject and raise with my own obsession: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1Q79cIRGek

I wouldn't worry so much about whether your financial aid information is complete for Cornell (in regards to merit aid). The only thing I sent in for them was the information sheet and I received my scholly info last week.

Thanks for the info! I'll just have to be more patient then, I guess.

Empty mailbox. Instead of grieving over the dearth of financial information, would anyone wanna play league later?

I didn't even send that in and just received a very generous merit offer. It was totally unexpected.

I would play with you but it's been so long since I played League and I would suck.

Have not received anything yet, either.

My numbers aren't spectacular so I'm scared I won't get much.

How does one receive fin aid info from Cornell?

Email or snail mail?

knowing the types of people that go to law school i wouldn't be surprised if we end up with a team of ADC's and APC's. or master yi's
