$ from Boalt?
« on: February 20, 2005, 06:15:55 PM »
Does anyone know if Boalt gives out much in the way of financial aid (either merit or need-based)? I'm assuming that as a public school in a difficult financial situation the money isn't too generous, but if anyone has any specific info, I'd appreciate it.

i'm curious too. i agree with you that they probably don't have much to spread around, since they're a public school. one of the mailings i received from them said "Maximum Boalt hall fee grants are $8,300."  I assume that means tuition grant. It also says that about 10% of the incoming class gets some kind of "scholarship."  I don't know if that's the same as the "fee grant" or something different.  I hope it's something different because that would mean that the scholarship amounts might be higher than $8,300, which would be nice...

Exactly... I wondered about the distinction between "grant" and "scholarship" as well, since I think some of the $ comes from directly Boalt and some from other sources in the UC system.

Anyone else out there with info?

Do you know when people accepted to Boalt hear about financial aid?
Has anybody heard yet?
Thanks.

If you get the FAFSA in by the Mar 2 deadline, you're supposed to hear in early April.
