I appealed my financial aid award. I requested more aid being that I will not be getting assistance from my family...I also do not have a cosigner so I will not be able to take out a loan. I wil have to pay my tuition out of pocket which is a huge reason for the appeal also because I need workstudy. I will not name anyone but I spoke to a woman at the school who I believe handles appeals and is at the top of the financial department. I do not believe she makes the actual decisions however, she told me that due to my situation of no cosigner and no loan she requested the commitee give me a "generous amount". However, she also told me the school doesn't give full rides...so I'm confused as to what she may consider a generous amount. In my situation the only way id be able to go is if I was given something pretty dam close to a full ride, and she knows this, but she keeps telling me to wait? If they don't offer full rides, but shes knows I need pretty much a full ride what am I waiting for????????
School is like 2 weeks away and I don't even know if I'm going yet!! I have not bought anything or packed at all because I'm waiting for the schools decision.
Has anyone ever been given a full ride to fordham or atleast pretty close to a full ride? Better yet has anyone ever been in a situaion where u don't have a cosigner and don't have any credit to take the loan out on ur own? What did u do?
