Emory-financial aid and Early decision

plzivy5978plzivy5978 Registered User Posts: 80 Junior Member
Hi CC, I have a question regarding Emory University's financial aid.
Well, first this is what's written in their website, FAQ.

What does “binding” Early Decision mean?
It means that you are entering into an ethical agreement stating that Emory/Oxford is your first choice school and if admitted with adequate financial aid, you will enroll and withdraw all other college applications you have filed.


I am not sure if I want to apply early decision to the school but am certainly thinking as it as a possibility.
But I do have a question about their financial aid.
If I were to apply ED II with need-based financial aid and get accepted, but the finanical aid is not adequate, can I reject the admission? How do you appropriately determine whether the financial aid is adequate or not?

Thank you

    Yes. That's where "if admitted with adequate financial aid" comes into play.

    How do you appropriately determine whether the financial aid is adequate or not?

    That's a personal decision made by you and your parents, based on your family's specific financial situation.
