So, I just got my financial aid estimate the other day for Boston U. and it's very meager for the very, very expensive cost of attending. They show in the "estimated budget" that the tuition might increase up to $42000 for 2005-6 when I would be a senior, up from the 36500 that it is now. They offered less than $7000 of institutional aid (mostly in loans) in addition to Federal Aid. So, how are you guys paying for it, especially if you don't have parents or family helping out? Thanks. Any advice would be appreciated.
