Is financial aid avg. 25k per year?

<p>I heard that Cornell gives around 25k to students for need based (i know they dont give merit based). Is this per year, or total for all 4 years?</p>

<p>depends on how much you need. I needed 42K this year, and i got it all, i needed 40K last year, and i got it all (my family's EFC was 0). i'm expecting the same for the next two years.</p>
