Where is credentials? Feeling dense.


Log in to the admitted site, on the right hand side in a column you'll see "Your credentials". Click. Profit. :)

GULC's website and financial aid process is the most annoying and cumbersome of any of the 20 or so law school's I've applied to. Multiple pages, multiple IDs, annoying password requirements, sucks, sucks, sucks.

Edit: okay, I'm feeling a little calmer now

Full portfolio analysis for while you wait: The GULC one is smaller than Northwestern's, but NU's doesn't have the fancy zipper action. GULC's is glossy, and NU's is matte. Both have lots of pockets without any money in them.

Hmm, so I can only go to one school. It’s going to be awkward figuring out what to do with the other portfolio...

Gah, I swear it's not there. Does it take some time to show up? I've got announcements, student ambassadors etc. But no credentials. :(

@Siamsa414

That's weird, I logged in again last night just to double check before I posted my directions. No clue what's going on.

Alright, I know this was discussed previously, but I would like to mention it again for my own clarity. So this is in my award letter: "Your scholarship, in combination with any need-based grants you may receive or have received from Georgetown, is for $10,000.00 for each of three years of study here at the Law Center. "

Doesn't that seem to mean that even with need grants, the total amount will not exceed 10000?? Am I reading this wrong?

No, because the need-based aid is from a different department with a different budget. The scholarship is 10000 from the office of admissions, then you'll get need-based grants (hopefully) from the office of financial aid about 2 weeks after you turn in the Yellow Form (according to the admitted students weekend).

Yea, that has been my understanding of how it works, I guess the wording in there just threw me off a bit. RC was never my strength...

Anybody else having trouble submitting the Yellow Form, Part2? When I try to move on to the next page, I'm getting a message: "An unknown error has occurred while trying to access your application. Please try again." I have tried it several times, and have verified that the info I've entered into the fields is valid. I already emailed the Financial Aid office about this, but I wondered if anyone else ran across the same problem?

Just finished Yellow Form. Not bad at all! It asked for my parents names/household info, but no $, though that may have to do w/my age (23).

Guys, I think I figured it out. The house building picture isn't a preview of the careers we can expect, it's a picture of Habitat for Humanity building houses for GULC grads!

So, even if we can't find jobs, GULC is gonna make sure that we're not on the street.

For those who have finished the Yellow Form, did it ask you on that form (or anywhere on the GULC site, for that matter) to send in federal tax returns for parent/student?

I personally haven't seen this requirement listed anywhere; I just ask because the checklist thing that Need Access generated and emailed for GULC said that they require tax returns to be sent in.

Just wondering because I know some schools require it (Cornell, Columbia, etc), and I'm not sure whether or not GULC does.

Thanks!

They do, but you don't have to get them in until June 1st.
