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.


but their NeedAccess deadline was apparently Feb 15 -- though I didn't see this anywhere except TLS.

Does everyone hear now? Has anyone got an email with no scholarship offer- just talking about a financial aid package consisting of loans?

They always seem to work past 5, so I wouldn't be surprised if the letters kept coming.

they must do this stuff in multiple waves though -- looking at how many people on LSN got money last year, it must take them weeks to disburse it all.

I just don't want this to turn out like the VCEs at CLS.

Someone paid you to give me a heart attack so they could take my spot off of the waitlist. Didn't you? Admit it!

i have to say i like how systematic chi is. i knew when i was going to get my phone call bc of alphabetical order, and i can feel reasonably good about when i would get a money offer because of it too. it's sort of soothing.

I'm a C. Maybe I'll hear soon? Or just not at all.

probably. it'll be like the VCE chain of command -- i'm before you in the alphabet so don't freak out until i've gotten anything.

the extra bonus here, of course, is that i won't get anything at all, so when you suddenly do it will be a nice surprise.
