Just came through with the final word... they don't have money for me... so I had to painfully withdraw (they were my #1 choice.) I LOVE THEM but I can't afford them. Not with free school and free books at Cleveland Marshall, plus my $~35000 net salary. So I could actually afford to take a lower paying job when I get out.
Still, I am very disappointed. I loved that school.
On the other hand, Cleveland Marshall is where my Grandfather attended, so I am in some way contributing to a family legacy, right?
I've already withdrawn from Akron, but they offered me a $5000 scholarship today, in case anyone is still hoping for $. I am praying for funds from Lewis & Clark but I don't know if it will happen, though they extended my deposit deadline to allow them to see the situation. Anyone received a recent scholarship from them?
Otherwise it is to Cleveland Marshall on a full ride (thanks to work) that I am bound.
that is very true. I think overall the relief of the 'no $' aspect is enough to recommend Cleveland State. I hope you love dayton, and if you transfer to case and need a roommate let me know! My friend went to Dayton for undergrad and LOVED it.
I wouldn't mind the federal loans, it is just the idea of the private loans that scare me. And L & C would be about $24000 or something ridiculous in private loans. After the $18000 in fed. loans.
