And yah, having to send everything is a pain. I'm seriously hoping Cornell is as/more generous as UCLA was though.


My parents made me do it, and they literally have little grasp on their own finances. I've visited their accountant twice. Huzzah!

That blows, mate.

Honestly I decided not to fill out these things because a. I cannot in good faith accept any aid other than merit stuff, and b. they are bloody impossible. I had no interest in spending three weeks with our accountant only to not really get any shinies anyway.

I think you need to fill out the needaccess forms to be considered for merit based scholly at Cornell since they only do combined need/merit aid (Same for Northwestern)
Thought I'd get to skip all that stuff since I had no plans to apply for need based aid anywhere!

At this point, I'd be more than happy to pay them full price, if that makes them look at my application faster and more favorably.

Send them a letter saying as such:

Dear Cornell Admissions,

I understand you have a lot of qualified candidates applying this year. However, in order to make your lives easier, you will find enclosed $135,000 in cash as a deposit for my three years of study at Cornell Law School.

Forever yours,
Guicciardini


Slight modification: "you will find, under a volcanic rock that has no place being in Ithaca on the side of the road leading to the law school parking lot, a manila envelope containing $135,000 in crisp, unmarked, non-sequential twenties and fifties as a deposit for my three years of study at Cornell Law School. Also, you will find a bus ticket to Zihuatenejo, where Andy and Red are waiting for you."

Nice. I've heard the interviews are a YP measure. Mind PM'ing me and letting me know a little about how the interview went?
