You were reserved with a 173 and a 4.0? Is this real life?

Did anyone get asked for an interview? If you had one, would you mind telling me your stats?

Open your eyes,
Look up to our apps and see,
We're just some 0Ls, we need some sympathy...

(Sorry about your reserve, cogito. They really should let you in!)

Check your LSAC profile.

As to your earlier question, I was interviewed and my stats are in my profile.

+1

EDIT: I should also add that when I contacted their office, they told me that it typically takes 1-2 weeks from the time you submit your financial aid documents until they inform you of your financial aid package.

Blew off two years of school over five years ago. At this point in my life, it looks like about the worst thing I ever did...

So they basically still haven't sent out scholarships, or what?

Other than the Dean's Scholarship I don't think so. At least I haven't seen anyone posting about it.

They definitely told me they'd go out right after March 15th. Wonder what the hold up is.

Perhaps they are waiting for the need based aid to do it in one swoop? Or to get a better idea of the yield of Dean scholarships?

Maybe. They gave me the whole 1-2 weeks after submitting FAFSA thing too, but changed their tune when I pressed them (and said my stuff had been in for like 4 weeks). It definitely seems like it'll go out in one big chunk, with those submitting later getting $ after.

me, but I feel like I'd rather go to GULC at sticker instead (already in). GULC suits my personal preferences, I can see myself being happier there.

This is true, Ithaca could be nice tho. I went undergrad in a big city so 3 yrs break from that is ok, and then go to NYC hopefully.
