It is about a 30 minute drive in traffic... the most congestion you will see is on Archer, but right now it's a bit worse than normal because of some construction.

For those of you who can see your loans, how long ago did you all complete your MPN and entrance counseling?

I just called and spoke with admissions & financial aid... but nothing was resolved :( they put me through to financial aid main campus but after a few minutes of waiting I hung up. It seems that being "incomplete" is abnormal. I can't see my loans, and I am not complete :( Ruh roh...

Nope, but I also don't seem to get several emails other people have gotten, like about housing and the football lottery. I get the Admitted Student Newflashes though.

Flamingo I looked yesterday and I finished my mpn and counseling 2 days before you so not sure why yours is like that. As for barbie you just did yours yesterday so it should come through in the next couple of days. If it's not there in a week then I would worry but until then I think you are ok!

Sorry guys :(

I can see the loans (but it says "projected"). I don't see anything about having an incomplete aid status and I have not completed the MPN and entrance counseling quiz. Also, I got the email earlier today notifying me that my aid status has changed (but it was exactly the same as before the email was sent).

No problem! I am glad I could help. Is the MPN and counseling quiz important? Or should I just not worry about not having done it?

Yeah you need to do both of them before they will disburse loans to you.

Ok I figured out why my financial aid status is still saying incomplete. I pretty much have to just sit and wait for it to clear.

Something I've noticed about UF students on this thread:

They only care to speak with you if you've gotten in. Think about that if you DO get in.

go to studentloans.gov and do the entrance counseling and MPN. The entrance counseling just ensures that you know all the information about the loans, it's basically a quiz.

Nope, we just don't know anything about the waitlist, so we can't help the person.

Good luck to those who were recently waitlisted!
