A ton of people at the ASW said they already received their snuggies. If I don't get mine I am withdrawing.

This is devastating news. Please no one tell Lemondrop, because I'm not sure she can handle this disappointment.

WHAAT NO THATS THE ONLY REASON I PICKED YALE.

But actually - I have several irl friends who have been admitted and already received their snuggies. So they're either still on their way to us or they're cheaping out on us later acceptances

Has anyone who's committed received a confirmation that their forms were received? I haven't heard anything yet and I'm getting a little nervous.

Yeah though it took a hot second. But if your worried just email them they'll let you know for sure.

Walk up my driveway today after work. Just a normal day. The sun was shining; the wind was brisk. I open my back door, and what do I see?

MY

MOTHER

FUCKING

SNUGGIE

The snuggie saw me and I saw the snuggie and we ran toward each other in glorious slow motion and will never be parted again as long as we both shall live.

See y'all next year.

the snuggie is real, and it's amazing. i'm even going to post this pic because i was always a little skeptical that 'snuggie' was a codeword for something far less exciting

I should let Asha know that if she'd sent the snuggie sooner, she'd have had me a long time ago :lol:

I'm not 100% sure, but my understanding is that their calculation goes as such:

Student budget - your contribution (you + your parents, if applicable) - Unit loans (~44k this year) = need based grant.

So, if you want to figure out the max possible, just subtract the unit loan everyone has to take out from the student budget. Both of these numbers can I be found online. I think the result will be something around ~40k

Ah thanks. I'm just trying to see if it's worth negotiating my aid package. :?


I'm pretty sure max need aid is around $36,000 a year. That's with 0 parental contribution and the minimum contribution they expect all students to have. But no, you're not going to have any luck negotiating your aid package. Whatever they give you is set in stone, and there's no one they want so much they'll bend those rules.

And congrats on the new admits/commits. Looking forward to meeting you all. Again, feel free to PM me if you want to connect on facebook.

Axe is right that you can't just negotiate your aid package, in the sense that the rules are the rules and they're applied equally to everyone, but an aid offer being "set in stone" is perhaps a bit strong. I was initially offered $0, but then I worked with the financial aid office on how they were calculating my assets, and I was then given an updated offer of more than $0. Feel free to PM for more details, if you'd like.

What is this minimum contribution? I emailed w/ financial aid, and they told me that if my assets are "0" then my grant aid will be [COA-unit loans-parental contribution]. I also can't find any mention of a minimum contribution in here: https://www.law.yale.edu/system/files/a ... _Final.pdf
