Why can't Chicago throw in an occasional reverse alphabetical, the ultimate elementary school fairness doctrine...

60k by email around 5:45 EST. Last name in the last 1/4 of the alphabet. Didn't submit any financial aid paperwork since I was only admitted on 2/5.

I was admitted the same day, and didn't get any email. Hope that doesn't mean they are giving me zip.

I really wasn't expecting anything since I was admitted so recently and didn't submitted what I thought was required paperwork.

<- S last name, just fyi. I would assume they're done by now for the day if they are going alphabetically, because that was a good hour ago.

Hmmm, maybe the first wave of letters was to the people who are getting merit only? Because no one's mentioned anything about need based aid.

They don't differentiate between merit & need-based.

Think if we are going to try to negotiate scholarship money we should give it a few days as a courtesy?

It seems like the people who heard back today are ones with high numbers. Plus, it looks like some people didn't really fill out any financial aid paperwork but still got money. It would explain why I didn't hear anything today.

well here's hoping for more e-mails tomorrow... fair to assume today's money-winners were merit-based?

I haven't filled in FAFSA or needaccess yet, so I guess so, at least for me.

This isn't true. Karla stated this in the Financial Aid chat, they don't delineate when they send you the actual number, but you can receive aid based off of need. Or what law schools like to call a need/merit basis.

It looks like everyone who got their emails today were the big number people based off of TLS and LSN.

I am dying!!!!
