<p>Are the financial estimates fairly accurate?
My mom still hasn’t filed her tax return yet, but if it is what I submitted on the FAFSA, should the financial aid estimates from the different UCs be accurate?</p>
<p>I was accepted to Davis for the fall quarter, and they estimate that I’ll be able to get ~19,000 financial aid. Me and my parents will have to pay the rest, about 6000.
I was also accepted to San Diego but for the winter quarter. They estimate that I’ll get ~7,500 in financial aid. And my parents and I will have to pay the other 7,500.
Is this out of the ordinary or perfectly normal? For 3 quarters, I would pay less at Davis than 2 quarters at San Diego.</p>
