I just went to the U of MN med campus and found out I would not get my financial aid packet until end of june. Am I supposed to decide by May 15 which med school I should go to without knowing my loan/grant situation?? I think that is quite unfair.

What is unfair is all those people on waitlists hoping for a spot that is being held up by someone with multiple acceptances. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
