To answer previous questions: It comes in the mail and includes loan eligibility information.
17 more days to decide.
Cy, if you like Cornell during your ASW visit, then I would be upfront and let them know you've received a larger offer from Vandy -- granted, there is a new financial aid director this year, but I know last year they were very willing to discuss options...
Thanks, I really appreciate the advice, and forgot that I would have a chance to talk to them during ASW. I will also be talking with them about trying to get Yellow Ribbon funds for the first 3 semesters, and how GI Bill will affect my aid award. Turns out my wife will also being coming up to Cornell during ASW, but to visit professors and look for a post-doc position.
I thought choosing a school would be easy. Was not expecting everything to come down to the wire.
