When I emailed them about how I'd like to negotiate, they told me to do it through their website where you get your finaid award. Should be an appeal tab somewhere there

Huh, I'm on it now and not seeing it anywhere. Did other people use the site, and if so does anyone remember where it is?

The my appeal tab doesn't appear until they activate it, so if they never responded to your email or never got it for some reason, then they may not have activated the my appeal tab yet.

I'd imagine they don't want to encourage people who don't know that they can negotiate to do so... Without TLS I would have had no idea, so I imagine there are people out there who similarly don't know.

So... is there another email address I should send my negotiation request to or should I just wait?

I think you have the right email address. Maybe try giving them a call.

I am and I'm even trying to arrange a TLS meet up and I'm weird and socially awkward. I would make a horrible community organizer.

I was TLSing from ASW; no shame. Will probably do the same tomorrow, but at NU instead of NYU

I met a TLSer at ASW (and probably more, I just didn't know it)! She figured out who I was... still wonder who she is :P

Why would there be shame?

Probably the best way to guarantee meeting other TLSers. Everyone at Cornell identified iMisto immediately after seeing that black and blue scarf.

I love it just as much as I thought I would! Students are really friendly and the buildings and library are beautiful (so many outlets!). The Village seems a little overwhelming but I've never really spent much time here before so I'm sure that feeling would go away after a while. If I win the lottery between now and April 22, I would be here in August.

Would this be more effective pre-decision or after a WL?

Also does it even matter for YHSCCN? It seems like LOCI's aren't as encouraged with these schools since they know why we wanna go.

I'd like to know about the first question a bit. I remember reading Mike Sperry (or whatever that guys name is the old Vandy Dean) say that it's better to send additional info BEFORE you get WL because it might make you an admit as opposed to a WL.

And I believe it's good to send LOCI's to CCN. Maybe not YHS, but CCN should know if there are reasons you actually want to go to their school beyond dat preftige. if you are only writing to say that their job placement makes you want to attend, then no, don't LOCI.

Also, do people have thoughts on the new dean?
