Someone on this board said that it's as high as they go.

True. And they don't negotiate.

6.8 for the first 20,500 per year. Then based upon credit rating: 7.9% for all amounts over 20,500 per year. So at full sticker call it somewhere around 7-7.5% or roughly 7000 dollars in interest per year assuming 100,000

Also 8500 of the 20,500 is subsidized by the fed.

Does anyone know what a 1L's schedule looks like at STCL? Is it 5 days a week? Are the classes back to back?

I've tried finding something official, but this is the best I can come up with:

"ABA recommends a 5 day a week schedule, at least for 1L. Not all do it, but I think its fairly standard.

My 1L schedule looked something like this for the fall:
Monday 850-11, 130-3
Tues 850-11, 130-3
Wed 850-11, 130-430
Thurs 10-12
Fri 130-3"

Thanks for the info. I did hear that classes at STCL start at 9:50 which is a big plus for me. I hope classtime dwindles toward the end of the week like this example.

yeah my status is still app complete. Getting really annoyed. He said there were tons of seats left, and that since people were only starting to give seat deposits there would be alot of seats available.

Congrats on the decision, if SMU or Baylor don't admit me, I'll be there, too.

Also, are you going to the Admitted Student Reception next Saturday?

Thanks, it's definitely a relief. I went to the reception on Thursday so I won't be going to the one Saturday. I actually decided on STCL after the reception so im really glad I went. Good luck with your apps, I'm sure you'll end up where you're supposed to.

Well, I'll be at the one next Saturday and most likely I'll give them the deposit check when I'm there. I really like the school, I just don't like that I didn't get a scholarship, which is leading to the second thoughts.

What is the reception like? Is it informative or is it just a chance to socialize? I'm trying to decide if I should go to one or not.

It's a little of both. I would say that it's definitely worth going to.

OK friends, txadv is back from planet pessimism.

If I get into Tech, I'll probably go there. If Tulsa happens to up the $$$ offer substantially, I'll consider.

Otherwise, and things stand right now, I'll be joining you in Houston :D
