So, I have applied to 12 schools, have been admitted into 7 so far. Waiting to hear back from 4 more.
Aside from being a spring admit to U Miami (fin aid doesnt come out til June), I have received aid from 4 schools. and at each school, I have received very little in financial aid that is not loans.
This is deeply distressing, as I was hoping to graduate college with little debt. Even for some safety schools where my test scores and GPA are above the 75th percentile, they only offered me 1000-2500 in aid.
The private schools I received aid from will also require me to waltz out of college with 40,000+ in debt.
It just flabbergasted me, as I did not expect this little in aid.
Is the minimal aid because of my parents salary?
Our income is listed at 200,000+ because of my dad's job. However, my parents are divorced and my dad has explicitly stated that once my brother graduates college (this year), the child support will stop.
Therefore, he is not paying for college according to my mom.
What do I do?
Sorry if i sound arrogant/snobby.
I am just very worried about being burdened by great loads of debt.
I have applied for numerous scholarships and have been turned down by them
