You should get a nice packet as well


This. Got a nice packet (probably the nicest I've recieved so far), but not really any more information.


But did the packet come after an initial letter post-interview? I just think it's weird to get a seat deposit letter before getting a welcome package.

Probably just beat it there or something? What was the timeframe you got it in after acceptance? For me I had interview/acceptance, packet 1 week later and letter came about a week after that. I wouldn't worry too much until about 3 weeks after acceptance.

Oh yeah I remember you scoping them out before acceptances went out. Glad you got to complete the order ;)

Do y'all know what the deal is with Dillards and seat deposits? On the Dillard letter it mentioned I still had to pay the two $500 seat deposits. Would this money be reimbursed, or do I have to somehow find a thousand dollars?

Would it be weird to email the financial aid office about it?

I'll front you if you promise to reimburse me when your scholarship money comes in.

I'm about to jump on a 14 hour flight, but shoot me a PM and we can work out details.

Yes, I am 100% serious.

Packet Came In Yesterday, Scholarship Money Inside, Virginia Law Dean's Scholarship 105k, 35k per year, slightly under 50% I think. But there was no mention of this during the phone call btw - for those of you wondering.

When did you apply and when was the interview invitation? Trying to get a sense of the timeline
