:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I feel like it's about to be grey day again where I'm too nervous to check my email and see the number.


Well there goes my peace of mind for the night... commence frantic email checking.


It's 6 over there now, so I guess we won't hear back today. When did your friend get accepted?


And is this friend reliable....


That friend was me haha- got accepted late Jan, was emailed with a specific question regarding my finances two weeks ago and was awarded financial aid decision yesterday around 6 pm [ET] They could be trickling in this week


Do the specifics of the offer come through in the body of the email, or do you have to log in to see the award?


Have to log in apparently w/ sunet ID

received notification of my award letter sometime this week as well. shockingly low, such that I will likely have to take the $$$ elsewhere. very sad, as stanford was my dream when i started this crazy process. i just cant rationalize $6,000 in loan payments every month for 5 years after graduation, even for stanny :(

Does anyone know how the grading system at Stanford differs, in practice, from Harvard and Yale? Is Restricted Credit at Stanford essentially the same thing as LP at Harvard and Yale?

1. YLS: essentially H/P (no grades 1st semester)
2. SLS: essentially H/P
3. HLS: HH/H/P (very rarely is LP given out)

From what I've garnered, restricted credit =/= LP. It seems that a restricted credit is more akin to Harvard's F than it is to LP.


What's the link to check our financial aid? Is it just the welcome page? I haven't received an email but I want to check, just in case.

Finally received my financial aid package! I'm pretty happy with it. :) PM if you want details. Best of luck to those who are dissatisfied with it and I hope you're able to negotiate!

To be clear, everyone received an email to their personal (e.g., gmail) email accounts when the financial aid offer was available, right? We don't have to be checking anything with our SLS login until we get the link to our personal emails?

I received an email from Financial Aid on Mar 22 telling me my award letter was ready. Then you have to sign into a portal called Axess to read it. You will need your SUNet ID to login.

I have decided that I'm going to ASW to see if I can convince myself that S is worth sticker over another T6 for free. We'll see how that goes haha, but I am looking forward to the trip regardless.

Can anyone remind me what we need to do to get the travel stip?

Yep, I'm interviewing for NYU's RTK this weekend and would really like to know financial aid info from Stanford before going into it. (fairly certain I would choose SLS over it, but definitely need to know about money to confirm)
