My Agora award was the base 20k Stafford loan and that's it. Now I can get the GradPlus loans as well to cover COA. I was pretty confident about this part.
But now you're all saying that there's still a chance for merit aid, even if I haven't heard anything yet? And isn't the deposit deadline like, today?
I really like BC and merit aid could definitely sway me, but right now, if I'm paying sticker, I have options that excite me more. But I have to pay the deposit in order to hear if I'm getting aid?
When is the deposit deadline, btw?
The deposit deadline is April 15th. And they said they are releasing merit aid as part of an ongoing process. So you could possibly be getting some, but you might not. Great to have such concrete info! I mean, its only the biggest financial decision most of us have ever made. Who needs clarity and information in order to make a decision?
