What would you all decide b/w UM with $21K total, NU $30,000 total (and
The COL is so high in Chicago that the 9K difference is not there.

OK, decision time.
Due to the lack of financial aid offered to me by Vermont I will be unable to attend this fall. They think that just because my husband has a job that we should be able to come up with $27,000. They only offered me 18,500 in federal loans. There is no way we can afford to pay back $150,000 total plus the school loans we already have.
It seems like in this admission process graduate-level academic work is accorded only marginal weight.
Where should I go next fall? / Re: Brooklyn$$ vs. Cardozo... is it even a competition? (With a side of BU)« on: May 03, 2005, 09:27:23 AM »
Not to sound like a prick, but what does Cardozo going up to Tier1 in the next 10 years really do for me when it comes down to me graduating and looking for a job in 3 years, and summer jobs even earlier for that matter. I feel like I hear a lot about the potential of Cardozo rising in the ranks, but what benefits does that give me?
agree with you. If Cardozo is not offering any funds, go with BLS.

my parents were pretty much happy with any type of graduate school. Medicine would have been ideal, but I think we're reaching a point in the South Asian community where being a lawyer is alllmooost as good as being a doctor. I feel like my parents can say "my kid's in law school" with pride.
I wish this is true for the East Asian community.
I applied for a Stafford loan at the beginning of this year because I thought Iwas going to a very expensive law school, but wound up going to a cheap graduate school. My question is...can I still collect the approved loan amounts from the 2004-2005 FAFSA? My hubby filed a corporate extension, so I was not able to complete the verfication process until now....
The loan is school-specific.
