Confused, Financial Aid Award Package before acceptance letter

<p>Hey,
I am confused, I got an Award Package letter, with it discussing how to accept the package or decline portions. But I have not gotten an acceptance letter from the admissions office. Do schools give out the packages before they accept or decline applicants? I even checked the online status and it is still under review it says. I am trying to transfer into a 4 year college and not familiar with the process.<br>
Thanks for the help
:)</p>

<p>I got the same thing and I'm going crazy trying to figure out whether I'm in or not. I hope I am. I really, really do! good luck to you also~</p>

<p>Call the college and ask.</p>

<p>Well, I guess (s)he already found it out by now:P</p>

<p>I am also confused about this process. I have been out of school for least 4 and plan to return to school this fall. I got an Award Package letter from online accepting the terms and condition, but I am requesting that my college admission application fee be waived. This is the fist time for this university forcing this policy for former student and see is a way for the University to make money. This is what the Financial Aid Office is instructing me to do. 1st, complete my former student application 2nd, write a letter to the college admission office requesting that my application fee to be waived so that I don't have to pay $45.00 former student application fee. I am somewhat confused about the whole process, what I was thinking about doing is going ahead and pay the $45.00 former student admission fee, so that I skip the "RED TAPE", but it would be great not having to pay $45.00 fomer student admission fee. My family attorney is insisting that I write a letter of economic hardhsip in order to avoid having to pay the former student admission fee.</p>

<p>What are your thoughts?</p>

<p>My thoughts? I wonder how you have a family attorney you can consult about a $45 charge and still claim hardship. Don't attorneys charge $45 to answer the phone?</p>

<p>But other than that, if you can truly claim hardship, why not? It shouldn't take much more time than finding a thread, reading it, posting your own question, reading the answers, and consulting an attorney.</p>

<p>In sponse to GeekMom63:</p>

<p>In answering your question as far as having my college application fee waived and consulting the my family attorney he is not charging me anything because he is doing my legal work pro pono and the attorney fee's will be coming from my grandmother estate. I am the Full Durable Power Attorney and Health Care Power of Attorney of my grandmother. That's why he has suggested that I claim hardship, due to having go back into court in having the court appointed guardians removed.</p>

<p>Doolieff1969: I apologize for my immature and rude response. Again, I think you may as well write the letter and include your circumstances. Good luck.</p>

<p>@GeekMom63 -- your remark was neither immature or rude, I was wondering the same thing.</p>

<p>@doolieff1969 -- You just spent more than $45.00 of your grandmother's money in attorney's fees to get advice on how to avoid spending $45.00 of your own money. If your family attorney is being paid from your grandmother's estate then he is not working pro bono.</p>

<p>This sentence makes absolutely no sense to me.</p>

<p>You're asking them to consider your application as a former student. There are costs associated with processing your request. They just want you to pay for what you are asking them to do.</p>
