Hofstra Early Action Financial Aid

whiteout13whiteout13 Registered User Posts: 136 Junior Member
I know that the Hofstra early action 1 and 2 are non binding, and that we recieve notifications about a month after the deadlines.
ive submitted my hofstra application as rolling, and the notifications start feb. 1st and rolling from then on
a hofstra rep told me i could switch to early action 1 or 2 and get my admission decision earlier. its non binding so why not , she told me

i was just wondering how they can make the financial aid package w/o the FAFSA and stuff like that? or is there no financial aid decision until after everything is in, and the notifications they say are only admission results and nothing else?
because if i dont know how much i have to pay then its not worth knowing early

    Often, with EA, the FA packages aren't sent out until spring. So, you get your acceptance EARLY, but you don't see the FA pkg til later. And you don't have to accept til after you see the FA pkg. It's not like ED.
