Has anyone on CC asked for a financial aid revision at Bowdoin? Did it work? My S was accepted to Bowdoin and we were completely thrilled until we saw the financial aid award. Their idea of need and ours is quite different. He's been offered great scholarships at other schools, so he has good options, but it's so sad because Bowdoin was his top choice.
Apparently, it's because we own the building that my business is in, the problem being that no building, no business. A mortgage is not an option because the business is art, not selling well at the moment!!! We live in northern Cal and property values in this area are half of what they were four years ago when we bought it. Even if we wanted to sell it, it would languish on the market along with all the other properties that are for sale and NOT selling. This asset is really not an asset at all.
