I was hoping someone could give me an idea as to around how much fin. aid (if any) I could expect to receive if I apply and am accepted to SLU Madrid. I currently go to a community college in CT, but I spent one semester last year at Suffolk's campus in Madrid. I love Madrid, but Suffolk was too expensive, and so I did the responsible thing and moved back home to go to community college. Btw when I was there I was really impressed with SLU's campus compared to Suffolk's campus (or lack there of
~ ). The way SLU seems to have put there minimal space to work is really nice, I especially like the lawn and the outdoor patio outside the cafeteria. Anyway, here are my academic stats:
1. 2 Semesters completed @ a community college in CT - 3.85 GPA.
2. 1 Semester at Suffolk Madrid with a 3.35 GPA.
3. I'm currently in my fourth semester and taking: Chemistry 1, Statistics, Principles of Microeconomics, Calculus, and a geography class.
Oh, so other things to know- I've already been accepted into the University of CT, and my major is economics (so I'm pretty sure that can be completed entirely in Madrid.)
I do believe I have a good shot at acceptance, but my main concern is the money. How is SLU Madrid with fin aid? I did see on their website that there is a 2000 euro a semester merit based scholarship for transfer students, do you guys think I have a shot at that? Also, I'm not sure what my parent's EFC is, but I believe they have a combined income of about $120,000, if that helps.
Any other comments about SLU Madrid would be extremely welcomed!!
