Spoke with Fin Aid office yesterday, too - they are making decisions last night and today, then the file goes back to the law school for another round of scholarship considerations, then we get notified. Crossing my fingers for one of those mysterious partials.
Niiiice, congrats man. I actually JUST emailed them about scholarships 10 minutes ago. Hope I don't seem like a pest now haha, like "YO, WE ARE LOOKING AT YOUR FILE AS WE SPEAK, CHILL WILL YA?!"
While I am leaning towards Iowa already, a partial scholarship of like, $21,000 over three years would seal it for me.
... Gee, I hope I haven't outed myself somewhere on here. It would be a bummer if someone at Iowa saw this and was like, "Well, we WERE going to offer you $35,000, buuuut..."
Man, that would suck. But I hear you. If I got a partial of even 5k a year (or 15k, *nudge nudge*) I would go to Iowa in a minute (barring offers from UNC, IUB, or Wisc that were competitive).
When I called I was transferred three times, and the first two people I spoke with said something like, "Oh, hi _____, right, your file for aid, ummm, hold on..." Almost crapped my pants thinking they thought I committed tax fraud and would not qualify for aid. Thankfully, just found out that we'd get notification of financial aid awards soon, and that students nominated for scholarships would be considered shortly as well.
I'm also sure that my call was one of 5,000,000 and your e-mail was one of 5,000,000. They have to hate us scamps.
