I've gotten one.

It's coming. It won't be as exciting as that JS2 you received, but it'll still feel pretty cool nonetheless.

Yea, I was wondering the same thing. I got two -- one from Dean Deal and one from Dean Magill, and both had 1 paragraph of personalized stuff pulled from the resume, and the rest was clearly ctrl+v'd.

Still, it clearly took effort and was nice. I replied with a thank-you.

az21833 wrote:~ what % of sls kids have cars on campus - is parking available? how necessary or useful is it?

also ~ what % students live on vs. off campus? if off where and what sources can be used to find housing

thanks guys!

1.) about half. A) parking garage right next to munger. B) Not necessary, useful if you are a fan of being able to drive.

2.) the vast majority live in munger. A) Mountain View/ Palo Alto / Menlo Park. B) the internet; Admissions/financial aid have a list of places.

I got a personal email from a student. I've asked him a couple questions and he's been really nice about it (and I got some new information: open containers are allowed anywhere on campus!). Other than that I just got the Dean Magill mail merge (she mentioned my UG).

They're heavily recruiting me because of all my minimum wage food services experience. Don't feel bad, not everyone can get on my level.

Hey guys, if we have submitted FAFSA and Need, when can we expect to hear back regarding our aid packages? I'm dying to find out if i qualify for any haircut at all, but i am skeptical because of my salary last year.

Will it be an email or snail mail? Has anybody else heard yet?

Not sure, but I think the offer might show up on axcess under the financial aid history by term or whatnot (this is a total guess)

Also, I finally got any email from somebody, so I don't feel as unloved as last week

For some reason, my mind is telling me you should hear within two weeks of submitting. They send an email.

Do you think you might be confused with HLS? They "promise" a ten-day turnaround time

I mentioned this earlier but SLS admissions told me that they were still waiting on the university writ large to decide on the law school's budget and would start sending out offers late Feb/ early March, so I would guess within the next couple weeks we will get offers.

Sorry. Perhaps I am. Mine was a pretty quick 5 day turnaround, but I didn't submit until a little later.

I submitted my app in mid-November and, according to the application check website, it was submitted for review on 11/26. Is it a bad/good sign that I haven't heard anything yet?

(a) wrong thread
(b) its not a great sign, but its not a bad sign: http://www.mylsn.info/whenwilliknow.php

seems like there are plenty of acceptances coming, and I'm too lazy to check lsn but if there was a big wave of dings from nov completes, then you missed that huge spike in february so odds aren't looking tooo shitty

Same. If I get any real aid at all I think I'd deposit that day.

the first person to get a fin aid award is under a moral obligation to disclose to TLS immediately
