School that pay your airfare
« on: February 25, 2005, 01:22:04 AM »
Has anyone had a school pay for there travel expenses to come visit their school? This would really help me in making my decision but Im not sure how to ask.

Thanks

Minnesota gave me $3000 to check out the school and go apartment hunting.  This only includes airfare, transportation, and hotel.  I also have to enroll at the school to get my money back.  Still I can make multiple visits to check things out, although I'll try to keep it low cost as they're a poor public school.

$3000?! Or $300?

Off the top of my head: stanford does, as does boalt. UCLA does for selected minority students. columbia does for people who demonstrate need. some schools, though, you can ask ... it doesn't hurt!

Does anyone know about San Diego? I don't really think I'll go there, so I don't want to take the expense to visit, but if they are willing to pay for it...

No, you read it right.  $3000.  I was shocked as well.  They could have given me nothing and I would still attend, as I have no other viable options. 

I get $3000 to look for a place.  I don't know how they expect me to spend $3000 on airfare and hotels, and transportation.  I'm not even going to try to, as that would be mean.  Like I said, if I don't matriculate to the school, then I don't get any money.

Wow, that's amazing! They only offerred me $300, only if I matriculate also. Do you have any special circumstances that made them offer you that much?

OK, I will go home and check it.  I swear on my life it was $3000, and I was so confused, because why would I need $3000? 

Did you get a scholarship from them?  They mentioned that they were giving me money to visit because I was a scholarship recipient.  I will get back to you though.  I'm probably wrong and it's $300.
