My financial aid "package" (really just a cover letter and one page outlining the breakdown) came today from Northeastern. They gave me some small $1,500 scholarship on top of the one they already gave me, so I'm stoked about that. A little jarring trying to do the math and seeing how far into debt I'm going to go, though, haha. Good thing Northeastern has co-ops...
What did they originally give you?
I originally received a $25,500 scholarship (over three years, so $8,500 per year) with my acceptance, and with the aid package came an extra $1,500, and then some Stafford loans and such. Can't complain about free money, but the thought of possibly being $100,000 in debt is a bit jarring to say the least, haha. If I go to Northeastern, I'll definitely be glad to have the opportunity to work full-time with the co-op program in 2L and 3L (it'd be really nice to land one of those summer associate jobs at $3,600 a week,
