Need based scholarships timeline

Postby toddly76 » Fri Mar 02, 2012 8:40 pm

Hello all,

I've just received my scholarship offer from a T-14. Even though its substantial, I will still have to take out substantial (around 100K) in debt. Only a few days ago I submitted my FAFSA which shows I have a small income (graduate student) and that my mother is on a fixed income making around $20K a year. Does anyone know if I'll be considered for need based scholarships with this new information available to the school or am I stuck with the offer? Anyone have any experience here?

There is very little purely need-based aid given out by any schools that aren't Harvard and Yale (maybe Stanford?). You probably won't get any.
