That's beyond evil. When were you accepted, btw? I didn't get an email yet, I was admitted a week ago.

i applied late january, got accepted 2/21, and got my acceptance letter about a week after with no mention of scholarships. i submitted my fafsa and villanova financial info sheet in late january and after my acceptance, i shot villanova an email asking if my financial aid file was complete. last week, they asked if i could complete an asset information form, which i did and submitted by email. i emailed them again 2 days ago for an update on my financial aid file and nova sent an email that my file was complete and that i could log into the novasis system now. my award letter shows that nova expects me to finance my education through loans, loans, and more loans. i don't know if this award letter is final so i sent a reconsideration email to see if it is actually final.

I'm saying this again; try leveraging for scholly by using other similar school's offer.

Is it weird that I am STILL at complete for 1/31? I know thats par for course with many schools, but it seems like Villanova goes so fast...yet I'm stuck.

That's not really true. I was complete 12/8 and didn't get accepted until 2/21. I wouldn't worry yet.

I went into review first but I don't remember when. Then my review date changed a few days before I was admitted.

1. make sure you submit fafsa and have villanova listed as one of your schools by the deadline.
2. fill out villanova financial aid form and submit by deadline.
3. if they request for any additional forms to be filled out, do so, and send asap.
4. email them to see if your financial aid file is complete.
5. they will email you when it is complete and give you your login infor for the novasis system. from there you can see your award letter, etc.

others have gotten scholarship notification by mail.

Also, has anyone heard anything regarding their public interest scholarship? I applied for the scholarship but have not yet been admitted.

I received an e-mail today from a 2L that is from my home state and alumnus at my undergrad institution. It's nice to have current Villanova Law students reach out.
