Are you happy with it? I'm glad you heard back quickly. I've turned in my Independence Test and FAFSA and I've filled out NeedAccess, but I'm still waiting on my mom to fill out her portion of NeedAccess and I sort of want her to turn it in before I commit to SLS so they don't factor my confirmed enrollment into my award letter.

Yes, I think so. I don't really have anything to compare it to, but it seemed decent to me. Still, the thought of taking on a sizable debt load when I could probably go get a decent job right now instead has me wondering if I'm crazy.

Glad to hear it, Laina. Was it the $$ package that pushed SLS ahead of HLS for you?

Salt in the wound, CB. I'm still held at HLS.

But seriously, I would've chosen SLS over HLS in a heartbeat, so it's no big deal. I am curious to see if I do ever get a response from H, though. And the aid package was great! No comparison to make, though--SLS was the only school I requested a package from. I've been set on them for awhile.

Ahh, sorry about that. Could've sworn you were in at H. Anyway, congrats.

YES YES YES! I told you they would, bud!

As you know, I'm leaning heavily toward SLS. I'm going to keep pestering you this coming weekend to join me in Palo Alto :D

Oops, just saw this one. I guess that answers my question. Anyway, have fun at Yale this weekend, but I sincerely hope you'll join me/us in California in August.

First off, congrats on the offer match! And though I was basically sure beforehand, I literally can't see myself anywhere else after the visit. It was incredible.

Hey, Stanford's not so great. You should withdraw.

Thanks,

Absolutely. If all goes according to plan, I'll be in Palo Alto sometime early Friday afternoon, staying with a friend I've barely seen since high school. It's gonna be a fun weekend. My first ever trip to California.


Beware. The State of California has been known to "grab" many a distance visitor Forever confining them to its endless beaches, slopes, cities, sunny weather, and laid-back lifestyle....

Hey, has anyone got a loan e-mail yet?? They said early-to-mid June when I called in May, so I'm just making sure I'm not missing something from them.

Thanks!

Sorry to bump (for the people waiting to see if more WL acceptances happen)!

Spoke to Alyson in financial aid today, we'll be getting our loan application stuff via email tomorrow. Hope that eases anyone else's nerves; I know I was starting to get worried.

I was just admitted off of the waitlist and am freaking out!!!! Dean Deal gave me until Friday to give a final answer, but I'm pretty sure I will be attending! If anyone could give me any advice about housing etc I'd be much appreciative :)

And when is orientation?

Orientation is the 25th, I believe. I'm pretty useless in the advice department, though.

Hope you choose to join us this fall!

Yup, if you live on campus, you can move in come August 23. Classes start August 30.

I'd check with Housing to see if you can still apply for on-campus, which I bet you can (at least one of the folks who was enrolled at SLS and left for Yale/Harvard was living in Munger, so there could be spots still open, if not, maybe in Rains or Escondido Village).
