URM 161/3.7 Fordham-scholarship?

Postby ns0291 » Sun Mar 20, 2011 10:17 pm

Hello everyone,

I was accepted to Fordham (full-time) and have not received any scholarship offer yet.
I'm AA with 161/3.7 & great softs.

Questions

1. Should I expect a scholly offer? I am pretty sure my financial situation qualifies me for a need-based scholly. Do i qualify for a merit scholly?

2. If i receive no scholly, what is the best approach to negotiate for some aid?

Any input, especially from URM's who were in a similar position, will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Did they offer the 5k or did you request it? If it was offered to you, how long after your acceptance email? Thank you for commenting

Fordham has a notoriously limited scholarship fund.

I'm 3.2/161; and I got a $10,000 scholarship. I applied in November, and was accepted Early January, I don't think I heard about the scholarship until the beginning of this month; I believe. It caught me by surprise.
