So, you are not concerned with the COA?

They had called me last Monday to ask for some extra information since they wanted to "turn this around very quickly", and I sent them the info right away. I just wrote them to say I need to see it before I send in my deposit.

I don't expect to get much.

Even when you "get money" you should know the COA, I think.

+1

The amounts you're allowed to borrow, the expected tuition, loan fees, books, etc. It should all be sent to us BEFORE we put down a deposit.

At the financial aid breakout during the ASD they said they expect 10-11 tuition to be 46ish and the full COA to be around 72ish. They should be setting the official cost soon.

Does the status go straight from complete to DR? Or is there an Under Eval stage?

Sorry if this has already been answered, I had a little trouble finding the answer in the thread.

Most schools won't have it finalized before summer. I remember the exact circumstances of ours, because Columbia's posted a few days later, and then we had a battle with them on TLS. It was the silliest thing, but I thought they disliked us offline, and I had to be talked out of this notion by some very bemused CLS students. In sum, we'll probably all find out in May or June.

My status checker informed me of my waitlist status on 3/24, and under the mailings section it stated that the Waitlist was sent out in the mail on 3/24. Its now 4/5 and no such letter has arrived. I was going to wait till I got the letter to send in an LOCI just in case. Should I just go ahead and send it in without receiving the letter?

yeah go ahead. tell them your preferences and send them the LOCI. that's what I did after I mailed the letter I got, just because. the person I emailed told me she'd make note of my preferences.

I like that OS has drama. I'm going to take over her early-USNews rankings postings and earn myself a pink username.

Anyone have any idea where they are with decisions at this point? I've been complete since 2/22. Are they still looking at January apps?

Well couldn't have asked for a better opening day. The weather was great, the Mets won, there was baseball on from 1pm to midnight. Probably my favorite day of the year.

I think something on the application said that applicants who submit after Feb 1 shouldn't expect to hear until after the end of May. I could be wrong though.

I just went back and looked over my app / the instructions section, I didn't see anything to that effect. Maybe it's on the website somewhere.

I've been complete since 1/14 and still no responses, so I'm guessing they are still finishing up January apps.

I was complete 1/12 and WL 3/11, for whatever that's worth.
