can you tell mw how to know my index number?
not yet, hoping for something though! Congrats on Tulane, it is my first choice, although it seems my chances for getting in are getting slimmer by the day...do you think you did anything that put you over the edge there? Congrats again, i'm sure you are going to have some great choices to pick from!
Nothing mentioned in my acceptance letter or anything they've sent me since then... I'm a Louisiana resident and have great numbers for them so I'm definitely expecting something. Are you thinking about going to their Admitted Students Day on 3/17?
You have received great Fin aid from a couple of your schools, I see how that much money can persuade anyone. I hope to get some $$ from Tulane. Good luck with the rest of your apps!
Late Nov/early Dec They were one of the first schools I heard back from
I got a packet from Tulane where they'd left the scholarship info out, and it arrived under seperate cover. You might double check with them, or let them know you have an offer from Loyola and ask if they'll match it. Can't hurt, and I understand negotiation on scholarship is common. By April they'll know how many of the first round of accepted applicants are coming, those who withdraw might free up some money.
No word yet on merit based money. The acceptance email said that they'd send that info w/the formal acceptance packet in the mail. I still haven't gotten that yet. I'm thinking that they received my financial aid forms a few weeks ago and decided that I'd be better off w/need based aid and that's the reason for the hold up (or at least I hope that's the case). I noticed that you're hoping for need based aid too. I think they're going to take a while getting back to us w/need based grants. Hope you get a big one and congrats on all your acceptances! p.s. Are you visiting for admitted students' day?
yeah, Roger Williams does have a pretty good maritime law program (or so all their brochures say.) The campus/area also happens to be gorgeous. After 4 years of undergrad in New England, I'd kind of like to go to school in NY - I've missed home, hah. I love your theory on your last three schools - maybe that's what Fordham and Brooklyn are doing about me, too. ;) good luck!
Hopefully you get money from Tulane. I know how you feel--- admission is nice, but not when you just can't afford to go. Good luck.
for the congrats -- same to you, and good luck!
How did you know when your application was complete at SLU? Did they send you a notice? I applied mid-Feb. but my report wasn't sent until Feb. 28. Could you give me an idea of how long it took? Thanks and maybe I'll see you at SLU next year:)
Thanks for the congrats =) Maybe I'll see you there. Good luck with financial aid and Iowa as well!
Well only you know which school is going to make you happy. Rankings really do matter, despite what people in lower ranked schools like to say. If you plan on working in Missouri, the SLU makes sense, but it does not have the national reputation you'd need to land a good job without connections somewhere else. If admiralty/ maritme law is really what you'd want to do, there is nothing to think about. If you're not passionate about it, you're going to find it very boring. In any case, good luck and I hope you make the right decision for your needs.
Well, I'd have to agree with what egordon said. I think it really depends on where you want to practice. I'm interested in the southeast (preferably Atl) as opposed to the midwest where I believe SLU grads would have better opportunities. I was willing to reconsider where I wanted to practice, but after I visited St. Louis, I pretty much confirmed that I'd stay in the south. I like St. Louis, but I don't love it. Also, the law school at SLU is kind of a disappointment. It's surrounded by all these gorgeous buildings, but its looks fall far short of what you'd expect. I also wandered into SLU's library. It reminded me of my small town library back home. Tulane has better facilities (great library and reading room) and reptuation. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, I'm leaving you w/my email. Feel free to leave a message. Finally, congrats and I hope to see you at Tulane!
I wish you luck and I hope your final decision is the right decision. In the end, you're the one who has to live with your choice:-) If we do end-up being classmates, be sure to say "hello."
on Tulane. There is a lot to explore in that part of Louisiana. Baton Rouge is an hour away and has really grown into a very nice city.
is a nice place to visit. If you have time on your visit, try to go there because it is really beautiful. Loyola is very free hearted with money. In high school, I was promised a scholarship if I would apply to the school, but I did not and ended up in the Army. It is also a nice place. Best wishes on your decision!!
See you at Tulane!
Congrats to you too. Most likely Ill be seeing you in NOLA
Thanks man, it's looking more and more likely that I'll be in New Orleans in the fall.
I wasn't lucky enough to get into Tulane but I'll be right next door at Loyola. Congrats and see you in the fall!
I see you hace made a wise choice! I was there at the visitng da last week and had a great time. I plan on moving down in about 6 weeks. Let me know when you will be in town.
Thanks. Congratulations to you too. Seems like even this year was quite a tough year to get into Tulane. Are you still thinking of going to Iowa?
