Can anyone help explain what I'm looking for on the award page? I'm in but want to make sure I am reading everything correctly.

Do you guys have a line that explicitly states Financial Aid? All I'm seeing is loan amounts and then this message at the bottom:


Your financial aid award is determined from the information provided on your financial aid application. If there is no financial aid displayed your application may be in progress. Please check back in a few days.


I also didn't apply for need-based aid so I don't know if that makes a difference...

So just to confirm-- if it says "loan" under the category and nothing else that indicates zero merit aid?

Awarded a 21k unsubsidized loan, so at least I know I won't be living in a cardboard box now.

Think so. :(

Mine has two lines for loans and one for a scholarship.

They only display one years worth of awards/loans... Are we to assume that we get the same in following years (if our grades/standing stays okay)?

Yeah, unless it's need-based, in which case income will change it.

The text I quoted from the site seems to imply if there's no scholly line displayed it may not be awarded yet. Anyone have scholarship line with a zero amount?

Confirmed with the admissions office that the lack of scholarship entry means no scholarship. Heartbroken but at least I have some good other options.

I guess that's me also with 0 merit aid - which means UVA is 100% off the table, since I have 150k in merit from another #8. Really surprised to be honest.

Also surprised because people with worse stats than me got at least $50K. I have higher offers at higher-ranked schools, too. This seriously sucks :/

How do we go about officially withdrawing from schools? Do you just wait and not pay the first seat deposit?

I'm in a similar position, and I'm honestly insulted given the level of interest I demonstrated.

Honestly SHOCKED by this after looking at your numbers. These offers were nothing like I expected.
