I'm going to start looking into housing more this week. I'll probably aim for something off campus but I could see myself living in North. I'm pretty much down for anything that isn't Gropius.

I know HLS doesn't have a deposit deadline but do they have an "accept" deadline? Is it May 1st? I'm at work and don't have any of the letters they sent me.

In case you lost the hard copy form, and it's probably easier anyway: this form can be submitted online on the admitted students site.

You should contact them. They may have sent correspondence that you never noticed. This happened to me when they sent my dad an e-mail and I didn't find out until much later.

for real.

Btw, I called finaid and they sent me my offer pretty soon after. Turns out that it had gotten lost in transit or something and so I never got an email about it being finalized. Just a heads up to anyone who has been waiting more than 3 weeks or so since getting the "complete and ready for review" email- it might be worth emailing or checking in. 3 weeks is probably the earliest though.

Just remember that that's the absolute worst case scenario. You're likely to not take out and spend all of the COL loans that you have access to and you hopefully have some form of financial aid or family support. There is almost nobody who comes out of HLS with $250k+ in debt with no kind of financial safety net.

And even if you end up broke because of law school, girls will still date you because you went to HLS ;)

does anyone know the deal with this base loan? i know we HAVE to take it to get our grant, but if we don't end up needing all of it, can we make payments toward the loan w/ the excess?

Interested in this too. I assume we can pay back whatever portion of loan whenever we want and the only thing that will suck is loan origination fees?

^ is an excellent question (even though it's probably wishful thinking for me; I will almost certainly end up needing all of it :roll: ).
