thanks! its a bummer- I know something is wrong with him, as he is not the dog he was 6 months ago. The sad thing is he knows somethings wrong with him too. So i gotta stay and take care of him. I hope that pitt comes through and lets me know of the financial package they have for me- as i really want to go here, but if the pup is sick, and i have to take care of him, i may end up having to stay close to home. :(

Sorry, northwood, my cat was sick a few weeks ago. I have had her since she was four-weeks-old and she saw me through everything including my mom passing away this summer. Hopefully your dog gets better - I know it's stressful. I think you're doing the right thing though - I had to call off from work for one of my jobs to "monitor" her one day. She got better though, hope your dog does too.

Just got mine. Was hoping to get some extra $$$, but didn't expect it. Sidenote, I thought the first deposit was due on April 15th and not the 5th?

when people say FinAid package, do the mean the loans and grants Pitt is offering in addition to the merit aid offered in the acceptance letter?

it's a list of the merit aid awarded and a breakdown of amounts in loans that one can take to finance the whole cost of attendance for the year.

Strange. My e-mail ends the same way, but has April 5 instead. I'll probably ask for an extension since I have an ASD on the 9th.

Northwood, did you decide to go with Pitt?

Take the 28X (airport flyer). One-way fare is only $2.75. Here's a schedule:
