Waaaa you get moooaaarrrr money?


Watch the update be a tab where they forgot to tell us how to apply for some kind of loan or something like that. :evil:


Well they are definitely missing some stuff on mine. I was just going to wait until they fix it anyway I am sure 100 people are calling at the same time.


What do you think is missing? Like info missing or money missing?

Really??? That's crazy. You probably have a super stellar Dean's scholly coming your way! :mrgreen:

Well I sent in my negotiation email as soon as I got this info, but I highly doubt they're making any changes based on that. It's too soon. Maybe it's just taking longer for your email to get it.

Do they delay award emails if you're under consideration for a named award?

This is possible - I just got the email. It reads in part: "Important student loan information was not included in your evaluation." This makes it sound like the omission relates to loans (not merit aid). But is this what everyone else's email said as well? If so, I will trust it means good news could conceivably could be on the way.

Just got another email about the technical difficulties. In my case it was just about loans, just as I thought. Hooray for clarification about going into tons of debt! :D

Mine says "important financial aid information," not loan.

My original one had that, and then they just sent me a follow up that mentioned the loan.

Okay, so there were two separate emails. One means they forgot to tell you about some merit aid, and the other means they forgot to tell you something lame about loans. If you got the first one (even if you also got the second one) - so that would mean law_monkey and tipler - that probably means you are getting some kind of merit aid. Does this sound right?

I think you are missing some merit money there.

No idea. I don't know if my second one was just a clarification of the first one. But if people only have the financial information that should be a good sign. I'm just not going to freak out about anything until it's all fixed. No point in getting my hopes up if all they're going to do is tell me how to apply for XYZ loan. :?

Knock on wood, I only have the aid one. Hope I don't get yanked around again. Please, seriously, please.

It says they're fixing it by the end of today. They probably close at 5 right? So that means we only have to wait 2 hours max before the mystery is solved!

im very confused as to how i dont qualify for need aid. neither me nor my parents have any real assets and we both made <20k last year (mother doesnt work), stats: 3.9/171

does this not qualify for any need based aid? I feel as if im the type of candidate who would qualify for need aid

Sounds like you should get something. Maybe your package was not put up right neither, wait until they fix whatever is wrong.

That would be awesome, too bad you're not going to Mich's NYC reception tonight (I assume). But I would be down for a drink with that crowd at Delmonico's any time.
