OK, so I was thinking of going to American until I received my financial aid package today.
It was insulting. Nevermind the measly grant, but the Stafford loans barely hit $9k.
This means they expect me to take out private loans for over $40,000.
Other schools have at least given me the max allowed Stafford loans plus a decent grant.
I realize American only does need-based aid, but my EFC is $10k so I still need $43,000!
