Right now Davis smells like a bunch of adcomms who aren't reading my application.


Perhaps instead of pursuing a career in law you and I should become adcomms at UCD after we get our JDs.

It seems like this career would be an awful lot like being on disability.

I'm all for this plan.

I just got an email from the Davis financial aid office letting me know about my "estimated" grant. It's very appealing, but I don't know if I can rely on an estimate too much.

Does anybody know how reliable these estimates are and if they'll give me a "final" amount before I have to make a decision?

I received the same e-mail too.

Does anyone know if these are academic grants or need-based grants? I've heard some people get 9k while others get 15k, what's the difference between these two groups?

From information I gathered on their website, Davis only gives merit based grants to 1% of their class. Granted, I could be pulling this out of my butt, but I think most money is distributed on need and not merit.

As far as the estimation, I would imagine that you would get a definitive amount prior to their deadline of April 15th.

Just got in from a letter postmarked 2/20/09. I think I'm going to actually fill out FASFA and need access despite the fact that I think my chances of getting money are close to zero.

Thanks.

Right now I'm basically down to BU, GW, UCD and a shitload of waitlists, so I'm really giving it a lot of thought.

I'm giving a lot of thought to how I'm going to get off some of these fucking waitlists atm.

Ugh, tell me about it. I am on them at GULC, UCLA, Vandy, Michigan, Duke and counting. It's only a matter of time until USC, Boalt and Texas add me to their WLs (if I'm lucky). I just hope that I can make it off one. Hopefully my LOCIs will be UNSCHTOPPABLE

Quick Q for those who have gotten in: Did they mail your letter along with an acceptance packet? Also, did it come to your current or permanent address?

Once you get in through the status checker, the packet comes a few days later. It's an envelope with information in it, including your acceptance letter. I only gave my permanent address so I don't know where they send it if you designated a temporary/school address.

Got it! And at my impermanent address, no less. I am super excited.

Can we get a count of people who are still waiting to hear back?

My file's complete since 1/13.
