Financial Aid Package for new student

SAMomofOneSAMomofOne 40 replies1 discussionsRegistered User Posts: 41 Junior Member
My son was accepted to begin in Fall 2019 and we just received his financial aid package. If you've received your financial aid package, is it what you expected? How did it compare with the net price calculator amount? The package he received was very disappointing. The Net Price Calculator told us we could expect to pay about $29,000. I pulled the common data set for the last 3 years and saw the amounts they typically pay for financial need and felt that we would pay anywhere from $29k to $32k. Instead, our price tag is about $43k.
Feeling very sad because I had done so much research and homework and felt that we could afford Baylor.

    I spoke with a financial aid rep at Invitation to Excellence this weekend, and she said Baylor awards a certain percentage of need, partially determined based of academic performance

    @egginmegan - thank you for that information. He did receive a merit scholarship - was just disappointed in the other financial aid or lack thereof.
