Does anyone know when aid packages will be released? I assume it's sometime after the March 15 deadline. Also, is there any chance I might receive a small merit scholly or is merit aid determined at the time of admissions?
Also, I'm able to go to Michigan's ASW, but not to Cornell's ASD. I'll just be driving to Ithica to poke around by myself. Do you think I'd be doing Cornell a disservice by not attending a ASD or will I get the same idea just walking around/talking to people?
I contacted financial aid and they said they start sending stuff out the first week of March
Thanks! I guess I'll send my taxes over tomorrow, because the earlier the better?
Any idea on merit scholly stuff? I don't expect anything, but it'd sure make my decision easier.
All scholarship information should get lumped together. IMO, lawschoolnumbers might be a good idea of what kind of $ you could be looking at. Cornell says they only give need-based, but that's not really true. So, find similar stats and you might get an idea.
Also, regarding ASD, don't sweat it. A lot of it is just mingle time with people who (a) won't come or (b) you'll forget by the time fall starts. The cool stuff like tours and taking to staff can be arranged any time you visit. The admin staff is very friendly and helpful, and someone will be able to give you tours and the like if you prearrange it.
Thanks, very helpful!
