I can't accept my financial aid?

    Haha whoops, but yes I would still call anyway, your email may have gotten misplaced in the flood of emails I'm sure they're experiencing this week, so a call would be much more expedient :)

    @tselle @sfxchris I just called & was told that this is probably because I'm an incoming freshman. I was told to wait until May to try again, and if it still doesn't work, to call again & accept the loans that way. If you two are also incoming freshmen, that's probably your case... If not, you should call.

    With that said, the deadline for accepting the admission decision is May 1st, which made me think... I have not seen the deadline for accepting financial aid, but I'm guessing it's not as soon, based on the instructions I was given.

    Right, it shouldn't be too much of a worry. I don't think they've even finalized the tuition for all the schools yet, so it'll be good to wait and know exactly how much you need to pay before you take out the loans.

    Yes I'm a freshman. Good to hear. Thanks for calling!
