I emailed a scanned response form, got a net id later that day, deposited electronically and got immediate confirmation.

So you can deposit online? It'd be nice not to have to mail a check



Does this mean youre coming?

I'd say it's about 90% chance I end up at NU. Still waiting on Wisconsin to see if they offer me more $$$ but if it's not enough to significantly drop the COA, then I'll deposit at NU.

I'm just relieved I don't have to think about moving to Tennessee anymore. Sorry boutcha, Vandy

I got that e-mail before even depositing. I think it was sent to everybody accepted and not withdrawn, not just to the ones that confirmed attendance.
I probably worry to much...



so did you deposit electronically? I got an immediate receipt in my email.



Yes I did. I was wondering about the scanned form though. Also, on the Caeser thing, the $750 thing is still there.
I am probably worrying to much about it though, I think we are all set.

Since I'm deferred, I've already submitted two deposits. Both by check/snail mail, since I don't have a NetID or CAESER account yet. (apparently those cost more than $1500) Now I just have to wait for the $750 disappear from my checking account, because I didn't get any other confirmation. For the first deposit, it took about 3 weeks for the check to clear. If this one gets lost before the 4/29 deadline, I won't have any way to find out.

I'll be depositing at NU. I emailed asking if I could pay via debit card online and apparently since I'm so recent, they don't have a NetID set up for me yet so I have to snail mail the check.

Don't worry. The same thing happened to me but I got a confirmation email (not the receipt one) after I called them. They also told me that it take a while for them to change your deposit status on Caeser.

Long time lurker, first post.

Just got in off the hold list! I received an e-mail congratulating me and telling me that my status page would refresh at 6 pm :)

For stats, I'm a pretty extreme splitter and am fresh out of college.

Sooooo happy. Depositing immediately.

Keep hope alive guys! :mrgreen:

edited for grammar. Excitement up=Grammar down. But, yay again!

Somewhat ironic that I would celebrate the second chance by doing one of the things that contributed to my splitterdom...but bottoms up!

I am slightly new in the admission process, so I am wondering, when do we receive our financial aid package. I am not talking about scholarships and stuff, but is there not a package where it mentions how many federal loans we get, how many of that we get etc.

I got an email about 10 days after admission. You'll get whatever stafford amounts FAFSA says you qualify for and the rest in PLUS loans (unless you have a history of loan defaulting).

EDITL Also believe you can borrow up to 77 and change this year (yikes that's high)

That is a lot of debt. It remains my number one concern, even though i really like the school.
