Hello to all. I am new to all this process. My D received an excellent package from her "safety college" we still have to wait for Brown and NYU. =)p
The wait is killing me even now that we received her financial aid package. Most of them were in scholarship and grants but I notice like 3 loans (not that big amounts because they range between 1,000 - 3,000 and work/study program). The rest of it in tuition, board, meals, books, were included in this package, but it left for me to pay around $8,000 per semester, money that we don't have. She is looking for additional aids and grants and scholarships that are still available, but what if... What can I do. Like the most people around, I live pay-check by pay-check with a son with a special needs. She will be the first to go to a college in our home... I don't want her losing this big opportunity, but what if I can't come up with the money to pay what is needed for her to go to college?
We really are happy with her Financial Package, don't get us wrong.
Any advice, suggestions, will be truly appreciated.
