I AM CONFUSED

I just got an email telling me that my financial aid eligibility had changed and when I logged in, my award had significantly decreased. SIGNIFICANTLY.

I still have my federal loans, but the gradplus is way down. I now have these nifty, "texas public education grants," but they do NOT make up for the difference at all.

I can't afford to pay the rest at Texas myself! I have like 4 dollars! What just happened?

Any scholarship amounts awarded? Either from the school or outside scholarships?

Maybe that was it. System emails go out at 4am, so maybe they send out the negotiation letters at that time as well. Are you negotiating up from $0?

Yup.


As a UT UG I had some scholarships awarded and it affected my grants and such, but I still think I ended up making $250 more from like $1500 in scholarship money.

I guess now I wait to figure out what happened tomorrow. I ran to check my credit score to see if I had somehow plummeted or something.

So what was affected? Grant amount? Loans?

I had no grant amounts beforehand, but my plus amount was much better. The other federal ones stayed the same. I received, "texas public education grants." I'm out of state, so that confuses me.

Interesting. Mind PM'ing me what your loan amount was before and now, and what your grant amount is?

So I just got the phone call today, IN at Texas for c/o 2013! This really stirs things up, considering I was dead sure about Vandy up until I got the call.

As a 168/3.75 OOS, and this late in the game, can I expect any money at all from Texas? Thanks for all your help.

I think so. Did they tell you to expect a scholarship letter in the next 2 weeks?

They said they'd evaluate and send me a letter in like 10 days. I assumed they meant possible merit and financial aid, but come to think of it, the lady didn't mention anything about financial aid, so I guess that's encouraging.

Texas is amazing, but I got a bunch of money from Vandy, so we'll see.

Check LSN for people with a 168 LSAT. Whatever offer they get so will you, you just have to meet the 3.6gpa floor. Bank on $7k a year on top of the in state tuition though. Makes me kind of mad that an out of state student with a 168 3.66 gpa gets the same money as I do, but if my alma mater doesn't want to entice me more than anyone out of state (or in state) then more power to the person getting a good deal.

Good call. Just took a look over there, and my numbers twin got $69k, which ends up being what you talked about, the in-state plus $21k. Looks like I gotta put together a last-minute visit.

I'm 167 3.8 and got 45k to vandy and 0 to Texas, even after sending a negotiation e-mail. Very disappointing, but perhaps you will fare better.

When did you submit your request, and what offers did you have for them to match?

I sent mine in last Thursday, the 25th, and I have not heard back.
