Transfer Student - Chances at GREAT FinAid / Scholarships?
Hi everyone, first post here.
Basically this is my situation; after two years at a State University I've acquired at 3.93 GPA and I'm now deciding to transfer schools. The problem is, I come from a pretty low income family, I mean REAL low income, so I would need major aid wherever I do decide to go.
My question is, what is the outlook for Aid or Scholarships for TRANSFER students? And which Universities grant the greatest amount? I'm in Massachusetts and I hoped to stay in state. I've just sent an application to Northeastern University but they hardly offer any "free" money, regardless of merit or financial situation.
It seems like most schools give the greatest aid to incoming freshman. My HS grades and SAT's weren't exactly the greatest, so it would be ideal to transfer into a University that doesn't require either when applying.
Thank you for any input!
