Financial Aid HELP!

tester13tester13 Registered User Posts: 35 Junior Member
I got may CSS information to GW in early April because of some late confusion. Is there anybody I could contact directly in the financial aid office to see if they can get me my FinAid package before the May 1st deadline? I need to know how much aid GW will offer me before I make my decisions.

    I'm in the same situation; I sent the CSS profile the first week of April, called many times, and sent a few emails. I received a response from [email protected] that given how late it is, they may not have sufficient funds but they will try to process my application. I sent some follow up emails but received nothing. I logged onto GW's financial aid portal yesterday and it says I am ineligible for Fall 2013. They haven't responded to my latest email either.

    You can try calling the office at (202) 994-6620

    Good luck.

    I submitted my profile on April 4th and I got my estimated award on the 19th, but they had it since the 18th. You should call though, I called them like three times.

    I just received an email saying GW is about to process my application but I'm already committed so I don't know what will happen. They may just be very behind in processing other profiles.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I checked my GW application activity center, and it now says they have received my profile. I just hope they can give me an estimate before May 1st. I don't want to commit to GW and then end up paying over $40,000 a year.

    Ah......just a couple of days before May 1st. No word yet.......I really wish GW would hurry up! Is there anybody I can call to see if they can give me the info over the phone?
