I will be a sophomore at the University of Rochester this fall semester. I was just notified of the amount of financial aid that will be awarded to me next semester and it is significantly less than the past two semesters. I would have to somehow acquire an extra $5,000 per semester compared to last year. I don't understand how this could be when I have a 3.84 GPA and my parents are making less money now than they were last year. I have talked to others at U of R and they say that their financial aid has not changed much at all. I have already emailed my financial aid counselor about what the cause of the difference in financial aid could be due to. Is there anything else that can be done? I am seriously considering transferring because I cannot afford to attend U of R at this price.
