I'm not having any issues with it. I don't have financial info on it yet though, so accessing it isn't doing me a whole lot of good.

Still getting the "your financial aid package is not available" pop-up.

Do awards trickle out throughout the day? Or is it more one mass "send" per day?

I can now access mine too, but it doesn't have any financial info on it. Do you think that means we didn't get any?

No, don't worry your pretty little head. Last year awards trickled out through April.

Alright so suddenly the bearfacts financial aid didn't say there was "no information for 2015-2016" and I actually was able to see a bunch of information. It says gift aid is 0, so do we think that's the final word or that I may still get a scholarship and have it updated later?

I can access bearfacts now too and it only shows the amount I got in need-based aid. I think it'll probably update if we get merit $, and I doubt it means we aren't getting anything for sure.

Idk guys, I'm really worried. Looking at last year's thread, people who didn't get emails about scholarships saw them randomly listed on bearfacts (including matching) when it finally went live...has anyone who didn't receive an email regarding scholarships see anything on there other than what they had previously been notified of?

At the admitted students event, Kristin Theis-Alvarez said that we shouldn't panic if only loans are showing up initially covering the full COA. Apparently it will look like that if/until they update with merit and need-based aid.

+1. The amount they are suggesting in loans is making me want to put on some sneakers and prance away from the altar in my wedding dress

Did anyone else just get the email from financial aid? It says my aid award is available for viewing, but it still shows 0. Does this mean I'm definitely not getting anything? I'm really hoping they just decided to send out an email after granting us access to the website this morning!

I got that email and responded with this same question. I'll update when I hear back.

Got the same e-mail. Please let us know when you hear back! My guess is this is not final. Many of us are still waiting on matching scholarships, and Berkeley normally sends out an e-mail granting/denying them.

I got that as well, I hope that they just haven't updated it yet, I'd be quite disappointed if I got no merit aid whatsoever.

Where do you find the aid award? I checked under "Award Detail" and all that's listed are my loan options. Does that mean Boalt is giving me a big ol' ZERO in merit aid or am I looking in the wrong spot?

Hoping I'm wrong...

Edit: Nevermind, I found the "My Net Cost" and "My Gift Aid" section... Yup, it's zero. Berkeley must be kidding themselves. So do I ask them to match Duke's award, or do I just show them my Harvard acceptance and gently suggest they're gonna need to buy me away?

My gift aid section shows a zero and I just got a scholarship via email. Could be they aren't updated right away!
