What was your EFC as listed on your SAR?

$0. My parents do live in San Francisco, so their house is worth quite a bit. They have $1m in investments - that unfortunately is not in a retirement account, but that's what the money is for. I have not received financial assistance from my parents for 6 years - I'm 28. Asking them for $50k annually would be asking them for more than what they earn per year. Actually it would be more since tuition is not tax deductible. So they would have to take money out of their retirement savings instead of contributing to it. Grrr.



I'm in a similar situation and had the same concerns. It turns out the "EFC" that USC posts is simply the number difference between the estimated total cost of attendance (like $70k) minus your scholarships+stafford loans. That number can be made up with Grad PLUS loans, and isn't what your parents have to contribute for you. You can still borrow up to the cost of attendance, and even beyond that with personal loans.

WAITLIST 4/15.

A letter of continued interest will be forthcoming.

Thank you USC for advancing me to the next round.

Did you go "In review" before getting the WL?

WUSTL's an excellent school, though. Is that where you're planning to go (without waitlist movement?)

Were you waitlisters notified by mail? If so, I'm just curious when you went DF and how long it took for the letter to arrive.

Waitlists are notified by status checker and then snail mail.

Complete = 11/11
IR = 3/17
DF = 4/15
Notification = status checker (no email, no letter)

Anyone going to Law Day tomorrow? I get into to LAX at 7:25am and depart at 6:55pm. I rented a Geo Metro (or equally lame car) if anyone wants to carpool with me. (I know, carpooling is very un-LA.)
