I was ED and got my need-based aid award today (it was pretty small). I am still waiting on merit-based aid.... very frustrating. According to the admissions office, merit-based aid can be given out through August.

Would it be possible for you to share how much they offered as need-based aid? Just trying to see how much they are shelling out on an average..

Sure, they give me 10K/semester. I was hoping for double that. but I don't have anything to benchmark to so maybe that was wishful thinking on my part.

Congratulations! That's quite significant amount given they have mentioned on the website that the need-based grants are in the range of USD ~5K - ~12K. 10K/Sem is almost double of this. Assuming this is renewable in second year, total should be USD 40K, that is quite a good number.

Second that! 5k/sem. Given the fact that CBS does not give out much aid I think that even 5k/semester is a huge help.
That turns out to be 20k that otherwise would be taken out of your pocket/loan. It is free money! I'll take it even if it is 100 bucks.

For reference I received \$6k a semester, renewable. Very pleased / appreciative. As others have mentioned, that's straight free money.

It took 3-4 weeks, they had a few questions, I answered them and we were done. For the cost, \$45 bucks, they're not spending anymore time than they have to

Reviving this thread to ask - has anyone NOT gotten any their Re Vera confirmation yet? I can't be the only who submitted my consent form on the late side (early July)... Unless I am? At this point, it's been over 3 weeks. I know it could potentially take 3-6, but figured it might be quicker since they originally said Re Vera checks would all be finished by July 20. Thanks :D
