question about scholarship offer

Post Sun Mar 29, 2009 3:19 pm
i got an offer from Fordham (MBA in Public Accounting)

the question is...when I contacted their financial aid dept to ask about the scholarship offer, I was told that they make their decisions in Sep, which is after admitted applicants accept the offer...I find this a bit unusual compare to other schools I applied to where they offer scholarship along with the admissions...because wouldn't the students want to make the decisions based on financial situation as well?

anyone has any idea?

I am not a financial aid expert, but this sounds very strange. I think you should call the financial aid department back and explain to them that the scholarship offer is a critical criterion in your decision to enroll, and that you would like an answer much sooner than September. I think that this is quite reasonable.

Good luck, and please let us know how this goes!

thanks eric!
so i took your advice and contacted a specific person @ financial aid office...via email...
and i got the same answer.
so unfortunately, fordham offers scholarship to enrolled students in September...looks like it'll be a tough choice to make without knowing how much of financial aid I'm offered...

Thanks for sharing that--and what a bummer. Sad
