I emailed the contact on Friday morning and she said I'd know the status of my financial aid "shortly". I didn't email yesterday, figuring to give a bit of leeway and extra time. I have no idea how long it takes once someone starts working on a file. She stated in Friday's email that she was working on mine at that time. I email her today - and get an automated response that she's out of the office until the 25th. Registration begins on the 28th. Really?? Do you *really* think that NOW is a good time to take a few days????
