    I only got merit aid (only 7.5k a year) so I am hoping they will give me some financial aid b/c otherwise it will be pretty tough to come up with the money

    Is the financial aid received with the admissions package the final award?

    Check what it says on the letter. It should either say "Preliminary Award" or "Final Award" - if it's final, it's final, and you're supposed to send in a letter saying you accept that award if you decide to go. If it's Preliminary, that means you still need to submit some forms, which you need to do by May 1, and then they'll send you a final award letter.

    I guess it's final then, because I have that letter about accepting the award or not.

    Hey people, I have one question. Together with the documents which I have to send back I got this form to fill in to pay a deposit. They ask there to write quite confidential information (in my opinion at least, I mean all necessary ones to pay with my card). I just want to ask if it's a standard procedure? What would later happen with does information which I'm giving them? (I'm an international and were I come from paying for everything with a credit card is still not that popular, that's why I'm a bit confused with this staff). Thanks
