I'm so sad that my son is going to have to give up his dream of attending IU Kelley School of Business simply because we live an hour south of the Indiana border and this will cost us $25,000 more per year to attend than an in-state student. What hurts even more is that he did receive the Dean's Scholarship (11,000/year) along with some other aid including grants and student loans. He has contacted both the Kelley school and Financial Aid. He was invited to join the Honors College, but it was after the full-ride scholarship deadline, so that was never an option. Both say there is nothing more they can do for him. How he didn't get any more scholarships from Kelley is beyond me. He applied early last fall and accepted fairly quickly after that.
I'm so thankful for the money he was offered and it would be enough to cover the entire cost of college if he was an Indiana Resident. My son has a perfect 4.0. Has never received lower than a "A." His test scores are excellent and he is a well-rounded great kid. Very sad that we will have to turn IU down even though it pains us to do so. He will attend a local state university at no-cost. Just very frustrated at the whole process right now.
