I got an email from Loyola today reminding me to file my FAFSA.

I suppose that could be it? The acceptance letter I got said scholarships would be sent in March.

This is an actual letter though- not a FAFSA email. It could be financial aid stuff, but i'm hopeful.

Well, once you (or anyone else) get's the letter in the mail, please let us know about the contents.

Thanks.

Will do! I'm too excited/optimistic to accept the fact that it is probably just another FAFSA letter. :roll:

I submitted my FAFSA a few weeks ago and have the financial aid mailing listed in my LUC mailings. Although it says financial aid mailing 1, so maybe it's a reminder to file FAFSA? I'm not going to get my hopes up until I get the envelope.

I visited Loyola yesterday. WHAT A PRETTY CAMPUS! Also anyone interested in Health Law this is the place for you to go. I had a wonderful meeting with the Health Law Director and I can definitely say that they really are reaching, if they are not already, to be the national leader in Health Law.

I know the ranking, but I am just saying from my meeting yesterday, Loyola is really great in health law.

Yeah. I hope that their offer lets me really consider them. I doubt it, though.

Still nothing under mailings for me. I will file FAFSA soon.

I hope LUC gives me something, if not I may have to negotiate.

Were you admitted recently, or back in January?

Admitted among the first wave of admits, 1/23.

Recently disappointing people are getting scholarship offers, and I have nothing under mailings. I have some $$ at DePaul and I'm still waiting on Chicago-Kent.

LUC is my top choice right now, so I'm wondering if they'll negotiate scholarships since I have $$ at DePaul and hopefully some $ at Chicago-Kent.

I would wait to see if that mailing shows up on your status checker. It never hurts to try and negotiate with them!

Oh yeah, I'm not going to negotiate now. I don't even have an acceptance from Kent yet. I'll probably look to negotiate in March.
