Accepted off the WL by e-mail last night. Kind of excited? No word yet on a free kitten.
Best line from the message: "Please do hesitate to let me know if I can answer any questions."
Congrats. Any scholarship offer in lieu of a free kitten?
I checked the financial aid website and it looks like they're offering me $78k ... in loans. That's going to make it pretty hard to accept the offer, much as I once wanted to attend. In the words of my husband: "You could be unemployed for two years after attending WUSTL and it would still
be cheaper in the long run."
I was accepted off the waitlist yesterday as well. I'm really frustrated with them though. The seat deposit deadline is Friday, but according to the LSAC guidelines to which they must adhere, if I submit my financial aid forms in a timely fashion I cannot required to submit a deposit before receiving a response from financial aid. I just got off the phone with someone there and I told them I had submitted both FAFSA and Need Access a long time ago, at the beginning of March, and was hoping I could take the aid into consideration before submitting a deposit. The person on the phone was kind of dismissive said that I had to submit my deposit first before asking for aid. I politely mentioned the LSAC guidelines and she laughed at me and said LSAC has nothing to do with this. She then told me that I ought to look on the website for any further information and if I want to request a seat deposit deadline extension, which might or might not be granted, I should do it in writing to the admissions email address. Has anyone else had this problem? Please advise!
Well first off, your experience was not unique. The Davis admissions staff is absolutely terrible, and easily the rudest I've encountered. I will say however that I was able to get things worked out exponentially faster by CC'ing Dean (Kevin) Johnson on my email to Dean Pinkney. PM me if you're after more details.
Is there more to it than just logging into MyAwards? Because instructions for that are on the admitted students' site. https://www.law.ucdavis.edu/AdmittedStudents/index.html
Edited to add: I don't mean that last part to sound sassy; if there's more to it than MyAwards it's relevant to my interests, haha.
