The financial aid at USD and Loyola are equally vague; While USD has offered a $23,000 grant for the first year with nothing slated for the other years, Loyola has offered 15k/year with the 30% stipulation which I can't take for granted. Chapman on first glance presents the best value. But the unknown variables make me pause and worry.
i'm with you man, same options, same questions, same concerns.
Again, same questions and concerns. Pepperdine offered $25,000 for the first year, which renews if I stay within the top 1/3. In their acceptance package, they warn that more than a 1/3 of the class may have been offered scholarships with the same stipulation. I don't know if I want to study in that kind of environment, with the prospect of paying full tuition while living in the Malibu area looming overhead!
I guess another option is transferring after the first year at Chapman to your school of choice yet the process itself is a hassle and i'm not sure if they offer scholarships for transfer students at incoming schools?
