For those of you who have heard back RE financial aid offers, I'm curious as to see what kind of money people are receiving. Please post! I received a generous $1,000 per year. Whoopee! :wink:

$1000 need based for first year, and $0 merit based even after negotiation. :|

They were generous with me, but I think it is a moot point since I got a scholarship and probably dont get any of the grant money offered.

They would probably be more generous with in-state students, but it all depends on what goal the UCs are setting for themselves now. Inexpensive for state students or be the best school with the best students possible?

Guess they are aiming to be the best school possible rather than a public good. Can't blame them for that, as law school is on a different level than undergrad.

Have not had decision, so didn't look at the e-mail too closely when it originally came through.

Am I screwed?


I'm in the same boat, and got an admit email last Friday. Unfortunately, haven't been able to get my paperwork in cause I'm abroad and due to a death in the family everyone I know is out of town state-side and thus I can't get access to my tax returns etc. Just called and spoke with a very nice woman in the financial aid office - she indicated that of course I'm still fine for Stafford (and maybe Perkins) loans, and that the March 2nd deadline is primarily for grant money aimed at the worst cases. She gave me Dean Schwartz's email address and encouraged me to shoot him a line, but her general reaction seemed to be that I was still eligible if I get things in double plus fast.

I work at JPL so it's pretty "casual" and I doubt I'll change from my work attire, but I might be tempted to wear some sort of USC item just to stir things up :)

Can I wear Texas burnt orange? I think we play UCLA next year in football, and started our basketball season off against yall this year.

EDIT: Nevermind that was USC we beat in basketball.

Those are good numbers, Shlonster. What part of the country are you in? (Trying to figure out if you're the first of a batch.)

You can wear burnt orange just because UT beat 'SC in the BCS championship a few years ago.
My two favorite teams are UCLA and whoever is playing USC
