In UVA's financial email they state that Need Access is required if you are looking to use Stafford and GradPlus loans. I was under the impression that this was not the case and that you only needed to submit FAFSA for these loans. Am I misreading the above sentence?

Different people at the FinAid office have told different applicants different things regarding this. The final answer that I got was that, yes, both were required, but that you can leave parental info blank (write 0 and N/A in required spots) if you do not want to be considered for need aid. I imagine you could press them and they would allow you to only submit FAFSA, and this appears to be the case for some people, but I would recommend getting that in writing from FinAid office first.


Ok. Thanks for the reply.

Anyone heard anything about scholarship/financial aid? I'm assuming we're all waiting until March, but March is getting awfully close...

In my acceptance letter, it said we should hear back by March 1st (which is a Saturday), but then I saw something that said March 3rd (which is a Monday and makes more sense).

It's Monday, March 3rd for everyone that submitted FAFSA and Need Access by Feb 14th.

Thanks!

I know there has been some talk on here before about Jeff Scholarships. Is the general consensus that those are already gone by now?

This may be a stupid question, but are there any graphs, charts, resources, etc that show likelihood of scholarship $ based on scores? All this talk of scholarship money has gotten me more anxious than before!

Thanks! Any reason why the 159-163 LSAT in the 3.9 GPA column average more money than the 164-169?

I saw that too, was wondering the same thing.
Maybe it is mostly URMs?

edit: NVM, URM excluded.

Yeah, the URM hypothesis would make some sense.

No problem. I wish I could give credit to the OP but I lost the thread, all I have is this doc bookmarked.

What I wish is that I could use this if they don't offer me the money indicated on the sheet lol. I hope I get somewhat close to what it shows on there.

eta: thanks for this.

Hope to be in Charlottesville with you all next year!

Has anyone who has been accepted this cycle successfully request a one year deferment from UVA?

Any idea of how lenient they are about granting deferments this cycle?

I will be asking for a deferment soon and am looking for some tips from others who have done so.

Thanks.

Check out this thread http://top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=86231&start=8775

Per the posters there, UVA admins have been real good about granting deferments in the past

Yes, very lenient and quick in response to requests from what I remember.
