Thanks! Pretty exciting.

FWIW, my last name begins with A, so it might be happening chronologically :P

I think they start with A's and B's and then go randomly just to screw with us. :D

"apply" as in fill out NeedAccess? OR did I make a boo boo and miss a form?

+1. That would be a dream and basically lock up Chicago for me assuming I don't get HYS. We have similar numbers give or take, crossing my fingers.

I didn't dream I'd get that much! I only wish Chicago had more to offer in terms of environmental law...


lol at the Midwest caring about the environment.

Just got my award letter via e-mail; 45k scholly (15k/year). Wanted to submit NeedAccess but didn't meet their February 1st deadline. Unsure if I can respond with a negotiation letter on the Darrow + a request to reconsider my package in light of my now complete NeedAccess. Thoughts?

Is the alphabetical theory still holding?

I rather hope so. Michigan basically has the trump card with the money factor, but I'm unsure of how to go about presenting that card to peer institutions. Also, last name near the front of the alphabet. :)

sooo hang on a sec. there's a potential you could get something despite not having sent them FAFSA / NeedAccess yet?

Yes it seems that for the most part scholarships are merit based (they look at need also, but FAFSA and NeedAccess aren't required). I can guarantee you my scholarship is solely merit-based.

oh! well in that case, i don't think they'd give me anything, but last name near the end of the alphabet so i wouldn't hear for a bit anyway.

Yea, what's the deal with FAFSA/NeedAccess? Their FAFSA Priority Deadline hasn't even happened yet if I'm remembering correctly.

Here's to hoping I end up with something... anything... last name L! I'm not expecting any merit aid, but just about anything would lock up Chicago for me. Right now, I'm still just basking in my (improbable?) acceptance.

I've been told it's a combination of merit and need, but they don't differentiate between the two
