CLS scholarship!
« on: April 10, 2004, 08:01:27 PM »
I got my CLS (columbia) fin. aid package today, and I was expecting to see that it was nothing, since the director of admissions told me CLS didn't give out merit based aid like NYU and other schools did.  Imagine my surprise when I read that I had gotten $45,000!!!!  I'm just shocked now.  They not only gave me money, but they actually beat NYU by $2,500.

Now I have to choose NYU with $42,500, CLS with $45,000, or UVa with $60,000. . . I'm still leaning towards NYu, uless Yale comes through *is tired of having fingers crossed so long*

way to go CLS!!!  I got the finaid letter today as well and...OMG 45K! (so much better than Cornell)  I'm more than a bit psyched.  Hope to see you uptown this fall...otherwise we'll be beating y'all at the Dean's Cup!

I just got a better feel at NYU then at CLS, but they're both amazing.  Out of curiosity, what were your numbers like, since we got the same great scholarship? 

I'm 175/3.99 philosophy major at a top state college (not university).  I have no EC's lots of honors, a research grants, and a personal statement detailing my extenisvie family health care obligations.

No response yet.  I will call them tommorrow, and inform them of my deadline.  They were specific about not wanting ot receive calls, but I MUST know by the 25th.  If admitted, I certainly will visit. Even though they won't give me money, I'd certainly still consider it.
