When did you submit all your finaid stuff?

Also, do we have to send in our taxes before we can an offer or is it like SLS where we don't have to until we accept the offer?


you need to fax in your & your parents completed tax returns prior to them reviewing your file

I highly doubt they're going to offer anyone else named schollies at this stage of the game. I think this is just Columbia being their slow selves. I'm pretty sure there were some radio silence people who didn't hear anything until mid-April last year.

Just curious, but are you basing that off of last cycle's LSN? I haven't looked at it, so I don't know, but I was holding onto the hope that the reason Columbia hadn't gotten back to me was that they were going to give me a scholarship lol.

Last couple of years on LSN

Though getting 50-75k in $$ is possible, you will likely not receive a named scholarship based on historical data.


From like 5 years of data, there is one exception (a urm)

it honestly seems pretty need-focused at this stage. thats the only way i can see me getting $0K, to be honest and I mean that in the most humble way possible - i sent them in significant offers from Chicago, NYU and Penn

What would it take to win you over? 85k? I always thought schools are pretty loathe to lose lifers (which makes sense from a donation perspective). Maybe if they knew you had HLS/SLS they'd make some money available.

yeah perhaps, i just never knew it was appropriate to mention that and really don't know how to broach the topic at this point. 85K is essentially a butler and i almost certainly would have attended with that, given I'm facing sticker at H/S. Again, i think it is largely need driven which is why I wasn't considered

I did. Was told it was added to my file.

Really? Did you submit via email or the LOCI form? When I tried to submit via email they directed me to a LOCI form and then I didn't hear anything after I submitted it through that.


Email


I submitted mine through the form and didn't get a confirmation either...

I think there's a lag. It took the office a few days to process my LOCI when I sent it through the web form.

I called them today and asked because i sent mine a month ago. They told me that they don't typically send out email confirmations and the guy looked up my file and said the loci was in there.

No news since being held in late February. I think there has only been a single post-hold acceptance so far (which happened last week); he/she is URM.
