University of Pittsburgh Financial Aid
Hello! I'm currently a Junior (soon to be Senior) from Ohio researching on colleges for accounting/business. One of the schools on my list is the University of Pittsburgh, but I'm considering cutting this school from my list if they do not offer good financial aid/scholarships. I understand that because it is an OOS public, it would grant me little to no aid because they save their scholarships for in-state students. From what I've heard, UPitt is a bit more generous with financial aid for OOS students compared to most public colleges. If I'm a bit of an average student with stats like 4.1W/3.5UW, 30 ACT (hoping to retake and get at least 32+) and probably a low EFC (I haven't calculated my EFC or the NPC because I don't know how accurate those would be given that my parents are divorced), how generous do you think they would be with merit aid or need-based aid? Am I wasting my time applying to this school if my family probably will not be able to pay the hefty tuition?2 replies
