Nothing was there for me on the federal aid site either, but I did some poking around and if you go to Student Services Online (ssol.columbia.edu), and then choose Financial Aid > Loan History, it shows the loans I applied for, which provided some reassurance that CLS got all my paperwork and the loans will be coming my way eventually.
Well shit mine isn't showing anything there either. Guess I have to call tomorrow .
Same boat and you ben, also gonna call tomorrow to make sure that all the paperwork is in order on my end at least
Same. I called today and was told I hadn't done the grant data form which apparently was sent out months ago...oops. For others' benefit I'll list all the things you should have done by now, according to the person I spoke with:
-all the stuff that was due in like May (fin aid questionaire, tax returns, etc)
-MPN at studentloans.gov
-Federal loan request form (emailed with scholly info)
-entrance counseling at studentloans.gov
-grant data form (emailed 5/12, or at least that's when I got it)
Note that Columbia does not use the grad PLUS loan application available on studentloans.gov. Also there are two separate MPNs, one for Stafford and one for grad PLUS
