Concern over Financial Aid - Not the typical concern
I was accepted to Northeastern EA and my Total Financial Aid Package was just over $35,000. My family and I have looked at it and my parents seem to think that it is very high. We submitted our CSS Profile to Davidson College in case I applied ED and they said we would receive roughly $21,000 in aid. So you can see where the concern may come in. However, I did receive nearly $14,000 in non-need based aid from Northeastern and that does add up to about $35,000.
Do you think there was a mishap in my CSS profile submission and my estimation of aid is incorrect? The package said I qualified for the Pell Grant, but my family makes over $100,000 a year. However, I have a twin brother who will be going off to college and my father will be as well.
My family and I just don't want to committ to Northeastern and receive our actual aid and it be considerably lower than the $35,000. Should we just call or email Northeastern after break ends and make sure the package is correct?
