hi friends -
have any early acceptances heard from financial aid? from what I understand of the HLS award packages page, even super low income students can expect to take out the base loan of 48k yearly, aka have loans of 144k+ total (unless you use less on personal expenses/rent/etc) - am i interpreting correctly?

That's how I understood it. Cost of Attendance - expected contribution + 48k loans=Need Based Grants. It really sucks too that you're expected to spend literally all of your liquid assets before even taking out the loans

It does, but I think it's supposed to protect the student.

Anyone know things about how much Harvard'll help with travel costs for the admitted students weekend? It'd be pretty fun to go but I'd need help to do it.

This has probably increased by now, but in years past it seemed to cap around ~$300 and that was coast-to-coast.

I'm about 50 miles from the Pacific so that'd be me. Thanks for the info.

Know a HLS student, and the e-mail accounts are really awkward, something along the lines of @jd.law.2020.harvard.edu. Not sure why. Make it @harvard.edu and the yield rate will double.
