I think you can bring gas receipts/plane ticket receipt to ASW and they reimburse you up to $200 or something of the sort.

So according to the Twitter, the next batch of financial aid decisions for Feb. admits is due out tomorrow. Any speculations on when that might come out?

I think pretty much everything from Chicago has been sent out late afternoon (after 2:00 CST) this cycle.

I'm starting to get worried Feb. admits won't get scholarship emails today...

I guess they did arrive at about 6:15 EST last time around.

Yeah at this point, I don't think they will be coming today. I do wish they would at least post an update.

If we said we want to stay with current students during ASW, when are they going to tell us who we’re staying with? 10 days...

Yeah, we just got an email about it that said we’ll know either Monday or Tuesday of next week. Thanks!

Just got my financial aid award. Anyone know what the max need based aid given is? (excluding ruby)

Just read on their website that aid is primarily merit based, with a consideration for need. So I guess my question isn't exactly relevant.

I now have 60k from both Chicago and NYU. I would be very unhappy if I didn't get SOMETHING from Columbia.

Well I guess I should have been a bit more specific and asked for some money in my financial aid email. :( lol

!!! Feb admit, just got my financial aid email. 75k over three years. I'm over the moon about this, especially since NYU offered me $0... this'll really make my decision a lot easier.

I hope everyone else gets some good news soon!

Just got a scholarship of $105,000 from Chicago.

Completely out of the blue (I didn't even apply to aid or scholarships).

IN SHOCK.

I love you Chicago!

I emailed them a question and haven't gotten a response yet. It's been almost 2 weeks. I'll probably call soon.
