Has anyone received any scholarships or fellowships apart from what is offered in the award letter?

Personally I'm excited to take a seminar with him. He's a "terrific classroom teacher," according to Brian Leiter's blog.

Ed Morrison taught a section of mock classes at the Columbia ASW. He was great.

Has anyone successfully applied for an extension and received one? The April 15 deadline is fast approaching and I am still waiting on hearing scholarship offers from other schools.

Looks like bowling is on the schedule for ASW ><
-Prepares to be embarrassed-

Edit: Has anyone emailed UChicago with questions/extensions/aid negotiations and actually gotten a response? I wish they hadn't pushed back that Financial Aid chat.

I'm sure it'll still be fun. I'm going to get drunk and blame my embarrassing bowling score on the alcohol.

Yes, yes. It's going to be so obvious who I am in real life. I'm so excited to meet all of you. Watch out, I drink a lot.
