I have already "bonded" myself emotionally with the idea of attending GSU, so they would really have to crash on the rankings and not give me a penny for me to change my mind.


I'm trying not to bond emotionally (though it is hard with PAWS)... I think I would lean very heavily if it moved into the top 50... but I am still in love with the idea of Emory. Also getting ALS would make a huge difference. But rankings wise it would have to move into that top 50 for the numbers to make any difference to me... or drop to like below 70.

Got a letter from GSU Law today. About missing documentation from my undergrad financial aid office (I'm still an undergrad until May). Thought the end might be of interest to those of you wondering/hoping for scholarships (ALS and otherwise)-

Please note: In the near future, we will be contacting you concerning your notification of award at your Georgia State University designated e-mail address.


So, check those GSU Law Emails folks!

I got one the other day reminding all of us to log in to PAWS. This was immediately after we had that discussion about Paws and Lexis Nexus. Wondering if they read the thread. I know Emory does as well as others schools.

No need to worry - this is a second letter (different than the one about Paws) - and I'm pretty sure I only got it because I am not yet graduated. They told me before that they automatically pull the financial aid info of those of us who are in school... so I think that's why I got a second letter - they pulled my financials because I'm still in undergrad and I have missing documentation there so they want it - thus I get a second letter and not many others probably will. Not that they forgot any one or that I'm special... I just didn't do the paperwork at my current undergrad b/c I thought it didn't matter because I'm graduating.

But the important part is that financial offers are coming soon and that we will be told via email! Yay! Nuggets of info... Law school cycles are like scavenger hunts.... maybe they do it on purpose to prepare us for law school - or maybe I belong in law school because I think this way.

Are we supposed to have any information of PAWS? I don't have any financial info in there. Is that bad?

Did you complete your fasfa. And did you list them as a school on the fasfa so they can access it. It took about 2 weeks after I completed mine for my financial aid award info to be online.

Not to be a pessimist, but they may have meant financial aid awards....Last year, I heard that scholarships got phone calls.

Their financial aid setup on Paws is just like my undergrad and all throughout undergrad my scholarships would be listed there with my fin. aid award. Scholarships are fin. aid, too. My scholarships would be listed there, too - so I'm hoping, hoping.

Although, I'm sure we'll get phone calls, too.. and I think ALS may need to interview... I'm not sure, though- b/c there is so little information about ALS.

Last year ALS came via phone call and never showed up in PAWS until the second week of classes. There was no interview.

Question for the earlier debate on wait listed/hold

1. For those of you who were wait listed / hold how did you tell the difference? What did it say?

2. Is being on hold better than wait listed or the same?

This is what my email stated
"The Admissions Committee has reviewed your file, however, a final decision cannot be made at this time. A second review by the Committee is needed.

Because of the number of worthy applications we receive each year, decisions do not always come easily. Therefore, your file will be placed on hold until a further review is complete."

It did not say wait listed anywhere so I am guessing it is on hold due to what the email said.

sounds like a hold.

This explains it well. http://blueprintprep.com/lsatblog/law-s ... -the-hold/

Held.

Better than being waitlisted, apparently.

Ugh. I feel like no one ever reads earlier pages. Yes I have contacted them. Yes they offer other scholarships. Decisions will be made by April 15.
