Anyone know if Chicago does need-based grants? I am clueless when it comes to financial aid.
I think it depends on whether you indicated that you wanted consideration for need-based grants on your app. From a Chicago email:
"Now that you are admitted, you will be receiving your financial aid letter in the next month. If you requested consideration for need-based scholarships, we will not send your letter until we have received your Need Access Report, found at www.needaccess.org
. If you did not request consideration for need-based scholarships, we will be sending your letter in the next 2-3 weeks. If you are unsure whether you requested need aid, you can email Director Machen at the email below for clarification, and he will let you know your status."
I think the stuff people are posting right now is merit...
(Congrats to you guys by the way!
