sorry, this was messy but I had to ask.



Are you talking loan money or scholarship?

AFA loans, you can specify the exact $ you want to take

Are you talking about institutional grant money, or loans? For loans, you can deny and accept whatever portion you want.

Perfect, what I meant was loan money. so you can specify, ok good to know because if I can possibly borrow less it'd be bomb dot com.

Just gotta remember the loan fees when you are accepting loans, don't want to shortchange yourself. Depending on the school their calculator I think will show these.

I can only imagine that most TLSers don't realize that success isn't owned, it's leased... and rent is due every day.

At least the list makes sense. I remember Berkeley's matching program list used to exclude schools now ranked above it. lulz poor unfortunate Berk.

Yeah most of the time it's really straight forward. The only times it gets awkward are when the schools sounds way too thirsty about it. Repeated personal emails, further imploring, bringing up legacy connections. Those are the horror stories that make me uncomfortable.

They very rarely happen
