I can tell you that when I was accepted to Johnson at Cornell University back in 2011, I was ecstatic, but when I got the call in..... maybe May/June, that I could not attend because of some historical financial things, I was devastated unless I could figure those things out. I had already made all of the deposits and things but my loans didn't go through. No one really knows this story, but I was DUMBFOUNDED. Here I had done everything in my power to get into school - and it was NOT an easy road, and now I'm stuck here not being able to attend because of some legacy undergrad loans. I can't remember exactly what the thing was about. Needless to say, I once that was all sorted out I did not have to pay anything out of pocket once I attended school and loans went through. Of course I had to live sparingly, but I had a little bit of savings from my job - and by a little bit I mean - a couple thousand (no more than \$4,000) to start school. But the loans that I took out pretty much covered everything. If you really have questions, you should 100% feel free to contact the financial aid office of a select schools to see what options are or if there are other students who have encountered similar situations.
