Got a phone call with a PA area code. Turns out to be an automated message from a shady recruiting company. Now I'm just pissed.

If I had to choose one word to summarize this whole process, particularly the 'waiting game,' it would be 'trolled.' For that reason, I was a troll for Purim (basically the Jewish Halloween). My best friend who also applied to law school this year immediately knew why I had chosen that outfit. Hang in there! "This too shall pass!"

Penn just overhauled its LRAP. It will be paying all monthly payments for ten years for grads that go into PI and make less than 80k

Is the admitted students website useless or am I just dumb? I can't figure out my desposit deadline.

Complete 02/14, UR1 yesterday.

I am just thankful that I wasn`t auto-rejected. Biggest reach of all time.

It pays the amount you would be obligated to pay under IBR regardless of whether you are on IBR or not.

If you're in the program for three years they give you more money on top of the IBR payments but that doesn't seem to be enough to do anything about negative amortization. Overall I'm not that pleased with it.

ETA: I might be wrong though, this stuff is pretty confusing. If anyone knows otherwise, feel free to correct me. Also, I was looking it up and it seems that Chicago does offer a one-time $10,000 payment to cover some negative amortization if needed.


I think Mich does. IIRC they pay your accrued interest through an escrow funded by the school.

Toll finalist!!!!! So excited!!! Almost cried and if you knew me trust that is the equivalent of a Sally Field acceptance speech :)

So sorry to those who who were dinged but with y'all's numbers and background I am sure you will get just as good an offer soon!
