OMG YOU GUYS I JUST GOT MY FINANCIAL AID AWARD LETTER!!!!!!!
AND I’M BARELY
OUT OF POCKET FOR THIS YEAR!!!!
THIS IS THE CHEAPEST YEAR FOR ME EVER OHMY GJEKKLA;JTWAE!!!!!!
My 1st year, I had to pay $17k out of pocket out of the total $51k tuition because everything else was covered by academic scholarships I earned and signed a contract for to maintain by having a certain GPA all 4 years. Used loans to pay the $17k.
2nd year, I was paying $19k because I left the debate team, so I lost my $2k scholarship money for being on the team the following year. Used loans to pay the $19k.
3rd year, paying $19k out of the $60k tuition (the board increased tuition by $10k for this year and the following years). Used loans to pay the $19k.
This year, my 4th and final year, the total tuition amount is $60k. The two prior years, tuition only covered 4 credits per semester, but this year they changed it to 5 credits per semester, which saves me extra $ since I’m taking more than 5 credits per semester this year for my double major.
Since I got hired as an RA, I get all of my housing covered for.
So I called the Financial Aid Office to see how much tuition would be this year for me excluding housing, and they told me:
This is my Financial Aid Award Letter for this school year, 2015-16:

After doing the math, this is how much I’ll be paying out of pocket that will be covered through a loan:

ALL OF MY DECISIONS
ESPECIALLY BY GOING THROUGH THE RA PROCESS
AND SACRIFICING MY ENTIRE SOCIAL LIFE FOR THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR
TO BE AN RA

KEEPING UP WITH MY GPA
JUST TO KEEP MY $20K YOU SEE THERE IN SCHOLARSHIP MONEY
AND BEING A DOUBLE MAJOR
TO GRADUATE WITH 2 BACHELOR DEGREES IN 4 YEARS
IS PAYING OFF NOT ONLY WITH MY LSAT SCORE I JUST GOT
