The Need Access form is only for those who are admitted and have university logins. It is used to consider your financial need when allocating scholarships


So those who havent been submitted, our only hope for aid is through FAFSA

...what? I am not seeing that on the FAQ.

I know this isn't the appropriate thread, but anyone know of any other T14 schools that have ridiculous dates for this stuff?

I'm not doing FAFSA for another 3 weeks get out here with that. I've answered about 35 questions already and this stupid NeedAccess has me at about 18%

You will be considered for scholarships when admitted. There are no extra forms that you need to submit to the Law School. However, if you would like us to consider your financial need when determining your award, please make sure to complete the Need Access Form.


Then click on the link and see if you can get in...

The Need Access form that non-admits are worrying about doesn't pertain to us. Its a separate form used by the law school to consider financial need when giving scholarship awards. You need a login username and password to access the form

Because none of us applicants have university logins, we cant access the form and thus wont have our financial needs considered during scholarship awards (if admitted). Our aid will be through FAFSA

Need access is just used when you would like them to consider need for scholarships. If you dont fill it out, they will consider you for scholarships without considering your need. So if you are rich, dont worry about it. If you are poor, it might make it worth your while. She said estimates were totally fine for Needaccess.

FAFSA is due on March 1, and that is how you'll get your loans. You can submit before you file taxes. But it's important to update this once you file. You dont need to update need access.

No. You do not need a university login to do Need Access. You just go to needaccess.org and fill it out and choose schools which can definitely include schools you haven't been admitted to yet. I'd say that in order to be considered for aid, even if you haven't been admitted you SHOULD fill out that monstrous time-suck of a form.

What in the world are you talking about? You do not need a university log in for need access. You go to the site and add in UChicago as one of the many law schools you're considering. This is TERRIBLE advice.

I have no idea what's going on, but I'm admitted and I don't have a university username or login...

Edit- if you could go back and edit out any misinformation it would be nice for people reading this thread the rest of the day. :?

For some reason, it is trying to put you through UChicago's Outlook webmail system in order to redirect you to http://www.needaccess.org. So it's redirecting us to the exact same form all of us (admits and non-admits) are already using. It looks like UChi might have just put one bad link on their financial aid page.

this thread went from ruby excitement to awkward silence to NeedAccess freakout...

I just submitted my FAFSA and NeedAccess last week to a bunch of schools with estimates from my parents-I plan on getting the exact numbers when they file their tax returns

need access was so annoying. my mom was like "I don't know, put 0 for everything." That's not how it works mom........ ugh.

From the Chicago law apps twitter:

The Admissions Office will be closed tomorrow due to today's blizzard. I've got hot chocolate and reading files to keep me busy though!

I've got a feeling that us December completed folk won't find out this week. The blizzard definitely isn't helping them go any faster.
