    In the spirit of last year's phone calls going on March 1st for LMU, I figured I'd establish the safe haven and anxiety riddled LMU-specific thread. Kick of your shoes, answer the poll, and make yourselves at home.

    Ok so here's the tea......
    I called yesterday, unsure of who I spoke to, but it was literally the weirdest thing in the world. I was trying to see when we could expect decisions and she was giggling the whole time?
    But whatever basically she told me that there's "no expected timeline" and "it happens when it happens." Ok work sis.

    Anyone have a gage on what the baseline tuition is? It's looking like it's around 20k per year, but I'm wondering if my calculations are off? I can't seem to find any set number.

    Based on the numbers I've found for this year it's $1,162 per credit and at 51 credits to graduate that's about 60k thus I think your calculations look right. Hopefully they let that financial aid fly like its a damn strip club.

    Wow, @Kira, did you get into every grad school you applied to? That's insane---you must have had one hell of an application!

    Hahah I am just as surprised as you are! I am very, very lucky.
    I sent a couple of shorts and had a spec script for Hannibal.
