Just got an acceptance package from another similarly ranked school in the mail. I'm going to take this as a sign that WUSTL will be moving this week to make me forget all of these other haters.

Under FAFSA there's a form for "New Students"


Hey Cuse, you may know the answer to this question. On the previous financial aid section--where would we put scholarships?

PERKINS
Subsidized Stafford
Unsubsidized Stafford
Family and Personal Contribution
Other Loans and Resources


I am thinking under other loans and resources...what do you all think?

For a period of one week, I've decided to report the sender of every non-scholarship e-mail to the police. Justice must be served.

ETA: what's that, Groupon? 50% off? Better hope you can use that discount on your bail.

GWU is a pretty decent biglaw feeder if that's what you're really after. The main criticisms levied against GWU are 1) it's located in a high COL area but tends to be very stingy with scholarship money and 2) in recent years it has put a ridiculous amount of people into school-funded positions.


I am not sure if this also plays a big role but GWU has a top IP program. So (correct me if I am wrong here) alot of students placing in these positions are probably from said program. I do not think I am too far off as Santa Clara University is also on the list and I am quite certain the only students who get big law from there are IP ones.


I work at a top Valley law firm. We do take some non-IP folks from Santa Clara, but it's a rarity. Our peers do too. Again, must be better than top 15% (even 20 or 25% will get you to midlaw if you're looking at corporate from Santa Clara). Just FYI--I've been bouncing around the Valley for 5+ years, so I don't think I'm mistaken on that (and have friends who have graduated within the past 1-4 years from Santa Clara too).

I called and asked about scholarships today and they said that they were "hoping to get them out this week". Not sure if that's news to anyone, but I just wanted to pass it along to you guys.

Hoping? HOPING?!

Good thing I stress not-eat instead of stress eat, or this week would be horrible for the waistline.

To lighten the mood, I received my flash drive today. It seriously made my day. For that reason I can wait until.... Wednesday for scholarships. After that and I may also go insane though.

Considering how numbers-based their decision process is what could possibly take them so long?
