California Colleges- Mount Saint Mary's University Los Angeles Financial Aid

Hello,
I was accepted into Mount Saint Mary’s University in November and I was wondering if anyone had received their financial aid. It says on the website that newly admitted students will receive their award letter in January of 2019.

Also, I was accepted into the University of Kentucky(where many of my family members have attended and taught at), but I really want to go to CA because I believe there are more opportunities for my desired major. If you attend (or have attended) MSMU, please provide information on your experience, teachers, campus life, safety, etc ( the campus at UK is beautiful and I really want to convince my family that MSMU is also a good choice to continue my higher education).

I just posted this in the wrong discussion thread ://
