Dunno if this has been reported by anyone yet, but if you had a merit award and retook the Feb LSAT, Michigan may have upped your scholarship if you increased your score. I just checked the ASW for the first time in about a month and my award was increased, so take a look if you retook. Totally unsolicited by the way if anyone was wondering.

Are you a summer starter? If so, they sent out some correspondence indicating that the award would change to reflect the summer term, such that your award out there should be showing 50% higher than it initially was. (e.g. $20k becomes $30k).

Nope, I'm a fall starter.

Ah, that works; figured I'd mention it just in case. In that event, congrats!

Doing a quick plug, may be looking to sublet an apartment this summer, not a bad walk from campus, affordable, and much nicer than most places around campus. HMU if you are interested, or want any advice or unbiased information about Michigan.

Does anyone know when the deadline is to respond to scholarship offers? I have the date of April 1 stuck in my head, but re-read my letter and didn't see any deadline on it.

Is this a RC fail on my part?

It's just the regular response deadline of April 30th.

I just checked my award info letter and all that appears is:

Fed. Unsub. Loan 20,500.

Does that mean I'm getting $0 aid?

ETA: grammar

Not necessarily. My award came several days after my Fed. Unsub. Loan showed up.

Whoop, Stafford loan just showed up. FWIW as far as I can tell there is no rhyme or reason to when these appear.

So this is probably a really dumb question and I don't know how any of this financial aid stuff works.....if I received merit aid and was informed that I'm no longer eligible to receive need-based aid, does this mean no loans?

Loans are different, this just excludes you from need-based grants. Which from what we can tell are nearly impossible to qualify for anyway. :)

Hey guys, congratulations on your admission to Michigan. For those of you looking for housing, consider the following:

We live in a nice 2BR that's already furnished and stocked with everything you need. Location is Packard & Hill, and the walk to the law school is 3 minutes (and only 2 if you're late to class). 5 minutes to the rest of UofM central campus.

Things offered? A.C., laundry on site, wireless, fully furnished rooms (1 room has a full bed!) and stocked kitchen. And if you're a law student, we'll give you all the help and outlines you need.

Two rooms are available, each for $499. Also can come and see the place if you'd like. Yes. Oh, and if you'd like parking, it's for a little extra but available. Dates are May15-August31. Dates and accompanying price are negotiable.

Here's the craigslist link w/ photos:
