How to handle financial aid deadlines while waitlisted
« on: April 22, 2008, 09:08:07 PM »
Say you've been accepted by school A.  Let's say school A anticipates making financial aid awards available at the beginning of June.  And at the same time, say you're on the WL at school B.  And let's say you prefer school B to school A.  But let's say when school A makes your financial aid available, you have two weeks to accept or decline the award.  And let's say school B estimates they will begin pulling students off their waitlist after the two week window at school A.  Can you accept the financial aid award because if you don't get pulled off the WL at school B you'll need it?  But what if you do get pulled off of the waitlist at school B?  Since at least two of the loans are coming from the same place is it transferable?  Is this situation handled differently on a school-by-school basis?  Help?

People seem to ignore these child boards so I posted this topic in Where should I go next fall.  Here is the link:

You should tag over there now.

If I am not mistaken,the "loan" options you choose are nullified once you withdraw from the school; assuming you and the schools have not yet recieved said "funds."
