Need-based aid is determined by your Eligibility Index.  You can check out the calculator here:

My calculation was spot-on to what was projected, but I'm not sure that would be the case with every one.

No $$ involved?

I'm not exactly sure of what your question is getting at...but filing the Need Access and FAFSA were relatively simple if a bit time consuming.  The "yellow sheet" that you have to fill out online is just a couple of screens and is quite easy.  You also have to send in your and your parents' returns.  I'm sure they will contact you if they need any other forms or supplemental information. 

I've called them several times to follow up because all of my documents are in but I haven't received my package yet.  I don't know if they're swamped or just slow.

Congratulations.  You seem a bit lukewarm about it...are you interested?

That's odd. I am ALWAYS asked by the white men around me about my hair. But then again they are the geeky engineering type so they are probably trying to decipher the eletromagnetic properties in my hair in order to recreate the phenomena known as "constant verticular negrotis", where a Black person's hair manages to stay up when pulled outward from the scalp.

Ok, time to put my EE degree away...

"Constant verticular negrotis"?!?!?

I'm going to file that away for future use.

Reminds me of my college roommate that said she wanted to know why black womens' hair didn't move when their heads did.   ::)

I like #3 but the one in the first link is nice too and looks like it might be better for everyday wear, sleeping on, etc.

I know that Chicago and Georgetown offered deffered admission to some candidates, but certainly not to everyone.  I'm not sure how a school would respond if you approached them with such a proposition if that is not something they normally do.

YAY!  Congratulations!

I found out by calling...and I'm happy as a clam!  ;D

Congratulations!  How did they notify you?  And which school are you leaning towards? 

Not that you asked, but I vote for Michigan.  The COA at NU is ridiculous!
