I got a lot of good info.
Good news is that once you send in your FAFSA and the Fordham fin aid application on their site, they say it'll take only a week or two to get back to you with how much need-based aid you will get. Which is AMAZING considering GW doesn't tell you until after you've made a deposit for a seat.
So I'm gonna do the Fordham app in the next week and find out how much I will get. One of the Deans said that they take into account how close your parents are to retirement. My parents are like 1 year away so I'm interested to see how this will impact how much I get.
Anyway, I really enjoyed it (and they had a session on Financial Aid) and I think you will, too.
Also, it'd probably be awkward for me to go to another ASD but I can always meet you afterwards!
