Also, for anyone who is wondering - there's no way the ND COA on their website is anywhere close to what you'd spend. It's a severe overestimate. You can get rent there for 400-500 a mo easily if you live off campus, and easily live off $600 a month for food. just an FYI.


I literally just posted in the Financial Aid thread about this! I 100% agree--and I plan on asking about this at ASD this week. I would honestly say ND's COA seems to overestimate by at least $20K total.

Same here. When did you send your app?

End of February because I took the February LSAT. I know I was complete 3/1 from my email. I did not start looking at status checker until around 3/12 and noticed the date was 3/10 and then it updated to 3/14. I am not sure if there was a date change between 3/1 and 3/10 though.

I don't know what everyone else's was but mine was $1,000. I also came to them with a lesser offer from a school only a few spots ahead of them so I really didn't expect anything at all.

What was the subject line of the email notifying you all of an increase in scholarship? I received an email today, but it was regarding loans.

Current Status Date changed to 3/30/2017

Any insight whether this means anything at all?

I'm jealous! I was complete 3/1 and had date changes 3/10 and 3/14 but I've been stuck since 3/14 and am becoming discouraged...

well I sent mine at the deadline so this could be my equivalent of your 3/10 or 3/14 change if that makes you feel any better

Anyone know when NDLS starts putting people on the waitlist? Is their waitlist ranked?
