I didn't realize my mother was so talkative. Yours usually gets right on her knees the second she walks in the door.

FT or PT?

I finally called today and was told they were in the final stages of making decisions for their PT program and that I should know by early June. My "complete and under review" was already moved once. At the very least, I think, they are considering me, or so I hope. A friend told me last night that this happened to me him with a few schools last year before he was accepted.

Looks like I'll be at Kent this fall :D. I just received an e-mail approving my request to switch to the PT day program and increasing my scholarship offer. I'm 100% committed at this point, so as long as my wife doesn't have a freak out in the next few weeks it will be a done deal.

I'll be at Kent this fall as well!...but they didn't approve my request for a small scholarship increase. They gave me 40k total for my time there. It's decent, so I'm happy. Congrats! How much did they increase your offer by?

Just nominated for the Labor Law Scholarship, which provides me an extra $3K for my first year. Other scholarships are available for years after that. This brings my scholarship total to $33K for my first year.

They just keep making this harder and harder.

I got deferred from the PT program. I will certainly complete the deferred application survey, but does anyone have more information on what this means? I certainly wouldn't have a program attending Kent for the PT evening program, assuming I get some sort of decent financial aid.

Thanks. They raised the scholarship from 30k to 40k (total scholarship amount).

I'm sorry if this is too personal, but did they give you any grants or need-based aid? Or was it merit scholarships and loans?

My numbers are for a merit scholarship, I didn't get any need-based aid. In fact, my loan offers were all unsubsidized :shock:

I was all set to go to Hofstra, but then I freaked out as I realized how badly my financial aid package sucked. I got nothing but loans, the majority of which were unsubsidized. About $51,000 a year in unsubsidized loans (plus around $15,000 in unsubsidized loans x three years = me in debtor's prison. That's why I can't go there. It's either Kent PT, with me working, or waiting a year. The more I learn about Kent, the more I like it, and I would start this fall as opposed to the next fall, so I really hope I get in. I've been deferred, unfortunately, but that's not a rejection, so perhaps there's hope.

Withdrew today, freeing up some scholly money in the process. Wasn't easy, but I think I'm in good hands.

Good luck to all!

LOL. Me neither. Got to get out before this place turns into a miserable sauna for 4 months. :D I still will hang on to the Illinois waitlist because they have the potential to offer a better scholarship...but I may just use that as leverage for WUSTL to increase theirs. We will see. I hope you end up getting off!

So your choice is between WUSTL and Illinois, if the latter takes you off the wait list? Damn, that's impressive. Good for you, man.
