Fin Aid Question

Postby SKlei » Wed Jul 11, 2012 11:26 pm

When updating your fin aid to the schools you applied to, do schools that receive your fin aid app. see all the other schools that you applied to? I know I'm being paranoid, but one of the schools I applied to I wrote on the app that I was only applying to one other school, but then decided after to apply to others, just don't want this to look bad.

Most of my schools this round didn't ask about other schools, but my approach to it the first time around was that it was really none of their business. I listed a few schools that were representative of my other applications, but I did not feel compelled to list all 9 (or however many) of them. Likewise here - if a school wants to call me on that, I would just explain that my decision process for applying to different schools took a long and winding road and that it was never at the top of my priorities list to make sure one school knew all of the other schools to which I applied.

Should I Transfer??

I don't know the answer. But, even if they were able to see it, my guess is that they would never check. Also, you didn't technically lie if you decided to apply to the other schools later on.
