So I have been accepted to UConn and I really like the school. They have a short form you fill out before being considered for merit/need based aid and one of the questions asks where you will be living during your 1L year-- with your parents or seperately.
Here is my dilemma:
I go to undergrad in CT but my parents live in MA. I only live about 25-30 min from UConn so I could easily commute and have ~0 COL besides my car insurance/gas BUT out of state tuition sucks and I'm sure if the merit aid would make up for it.
I have family in CT but over an hour from the school.
I could get an apartment in CT but I don't know if the COL would overshadow the in-state discount.
Does anyone have experience with or advice about this? I wanted to wait for the merit and need based aid to come through before deciding where to live but I don't want to make the wrong choice and miss out on any scholarships.
Discuss various money matters here. Loans (federal and private), scholarships, lottery winnings, or other school finance related information and queries.
