Merit Aid Appeals

<p>Has anyone from past years appealed their financial aid / merit aid? if so, were you successful in getting any more before or after May 1st? Thanks!</p>

<p>I am writin my appeal letter and will send it in the mail this monday. I didnt know we could appeal til like thursday so that's why im late</p>

<p>i already appealed. They said they can not make a decision before may 1st but they will look at my application after may 1st and make a decision</p>

<p>i basically stated that I did not succumb to "senioritis", i have always kept strong grades, varsity lacrosse captain, and family moving to china provides me opportunities for growth and bringing culture and diversity to USD's campus.</p>

<p>i would include things that your son has done well during his second semester as a senior. if he continued to take a bunch of AP classes discuss that he kept academic integrity, ect.</p>

<p>Best of Luck.</p>
