How long after you all were admitted did you hear about financial aid?

OMG, what if they have us all in some sort of applicant bracket?


Well it'd definitely be a real shocker if I got in

I think they should do admissions Charlie Brown spelling bee style.

On LSN the only responses people in that date range have had are dings. The admit closest to that range is edamame, who submitted her app on 2/05. (Correct me if I'm wrong, anyone..)

*date range I'm talking about is very late Februay onwards

Eli, thank you so much for looking into that - it's given me a sliver of hope as a March submit.

Those aren't bad options, az, lol. I think there are a few people, very conservatively speaking, that can still get in.

And az is definitely one of them. I'm with ya though, I just have wanted YLS so badly, for so long, that it's hard to make a choice when there's still that fool's hope I could get a call. But HS are both amazing schools. I'm telling myself that, at least.

For realz? How late in March?'

EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot - the app deadline was 3/4 (extended from 3/1), so kind of a moot point... wow though, that's good to know.

Every time I come close to accepting that mentality, someone with very close to my numbers or softs gets in and hope springs eternal. :roll:

But we always knew people with our numbers get in, that was never in question. It's the rest of the app that the decision will hinge on. If I give myself an honest assessment, I know that's where I fall short.

Aww, I wish I could give you a hug. I know what it feels like. :-( But remember, it's not over yet.

Didn't mean to be! :( Just (less than eloquently) admitting that we all have amazing options, and I'm super excited about the options i have! I just am having a tough time making a decision with silence from yale hanging over my head. If i'm not getting in, I'd rather have my PFO sooner, rather than later....

I think my K-JD status is going to be my downfall.

It'll be over by the financial aid deadline if it's rigid. My dad hasn't even sniffed his tax forms, so I'm SOL. I can't put into words how frustrating it is to have incredibly irresponsible parents.

This got really sad, really quickly! We should all smile. I feel bad now for sounding ungrateful or braggy :(

Cheer up music!

Meh, if it fits with the rest of your application, then it probably just comes across as genuine, your voice. My guess is that's why they leave it so open ended...

Mine had to be the worst. I caught a grammatical mistake in it a couple weeks later. I was so burnt out by the time I submitted Yale, I definitely did not put my best foot forward.
