For International Students, the gist of financial aid seminar can be found below:
    1. No merit-cum-need based scholarship available
    2. Merit based scholarship is available and such scholarships will continue being given out on a rolling basis
    3. No need-based scholarship as such, but financial aid through loan is available
    4. If you complete your financial-aid application till January 15th, you will receive your provisional financial-aid package before the deposit date of 12th February. If you complete it after 15th Jan, you will still receive your provisional financial-aid package, but most probably after the deposit date of 12th February

Snapshot of important deadlines for all students can be found in the attachment.

Regarding the Re Vera background check:

I spoke with my assigned admissions contact, and she said that normally they do not contact students unless a problem arises. However, she did invite me to circle back with her in a few weeks to see if it had been completed.

Its funny that I can bet heavily that your choice of words "circle back" means that we share the same admissions contact :-D :-D

Mine also told me the same thing, to "circle back" a few weeks after my transcripts have been sent.

Let us know as and when you hear about your verification being complete.

Will do, I figure I'll shoot her a note end of this month (probably last week of January) to see where it is at. What about you?

Has anyone attempted to ask the admission office for an extension on the deposit deadline? My reason is that my girlfriend is applying to medical residency programs, and will not know what city she will end up in until 3/18. Have had mixed results asking at other schools, so just looking for a little intel.

This is an important question that a few others will be interested in as well. But unfortunately, I think the best people to answer your question will be the adcom members.

Just an FYI, I got information regarding financial aid today through my student Kellogg email account. If you filled out your FAFSA and financial aid info, it may be worth checking.

Yes, I believe the list is on the finaid website on Kellogg's portal. Prodigy finance is one. With NU Loan Type B you cna even have an international co signor but it does come with a 4% origination fees which wont be there if you have a US cosignor.

Is there a Telegram or whatsapp chat group available to make messaging and chats seamless? Or should I go ahead and create one to make things easier for all admitted students?

Contact generalist for the whatsapp group.

All: did you get to hear about the completion of ReVera's verification?

I haven't heard anything yet, have you? They asked me for info a few weeks back but heard nothing since. My assumption is I am done.

Pretty much the same story. Re Vera told me they forwarded my file to Kellogg, so I'm assuming the review (at least from Re Vera's end) is done.
