Thanks my friend =)

So its Seton Hall for you?

Currently, since I'm not in at Rutgers, I'm deciding between St. John's and Seton Hall...

No luck for us Zeph! :D I wonder how they are going to notify so many people before April 15th with the holidays and all...


Did they tell the deferred students that we will definitley hear by April 15?

Just withdrew from 20K per year offer...hopefully someone who really wants it will get my spot and my money. Enjoy paying off your debt quickly. I'll be living in a Chinese food box paying off loans until 2050, haha.

Best of luck everyone!

Officially, I'm deciding between William and Mary and Cardozo.

Unofficially, I'm headed to Cardozo...shhhhh.

Keep me posted regarding your decision, man. It's been great to talk to someone going through a similar process. Best of luck to you!

This school is seriously killing me. If I got in here, I would go 100%. It's the cheapest option for me, and it's location is exactly what I want - near but not in NY. Being on hold sucks. I really hope they magically notify me before I send in seat deposits to Pitt and Case and potentially waste money. =(

Were you notified of your scholarship via the e-mail from Dean Walton or in your acceptance package?

I just got my acceptance letter, with a small merit scholarship. Does anyone know approximately how long it may take to hear from financial aid? I sent my FAFSA in about a month and a half ago. Also, any idea how much i can expect in grants? I only earned about 12k last year.

P.S. does anyone know exactly what the tuition and R&B costs for 09-10 will be?

I was accepted yesterday and today when I checked the status checker it still says "No Decision". So I wouldn't invest any effort worrying about what the status checker displays...

Umm I don't think they said a definite, so we have to sweat it out.

I agree, it said my personal statement wasn't there, or something to that effect.

When I spoke to the lady in fin-aid she said the tuition (in-state) is ~$21,000 and they estimated $18-22k/year for R&B in the COA budget.
But the official 2009-2010 CoA isn't out yet.

Withdraw from W&M... I'm on their waitlist and am dying to go. If I don't get in, Rutgers-Newark it is.

Just an FYI, I stopped by Rutgers Newark Law Center last Saturday.

Outside the Admissions office they had approx 30-40 acceptance packages waiting to be mailed.


Good luck to those waiting to hear.... Including me.

Why'd you stop by the office? To try to get more $$?

Zeph I didn't get an email a phone call or anything. And because of a HUGE mix up in the admissions office with my address I didn't get my acceptance packet until months after I had actually been accepted.
So maybe they'll just send out your acceptance packet today, and you'll get is in a few days and then I can see this new 'tar you were talking about!!!

18-22k??? holy crap that is a lot more than I expected. I was thinking more like 13-15k. Oh boy.

Does anyone know if the scholarship amt they give you in the acceptance package includes need-based grants? Or will I get additional money?

Sorry--I should specify the $18-22k/year for living is for off campus. Not university housing!!

You figure 1L in-state tuition and Rutgers provided housing runs you around the low 30's.
