    Hey, did any of you get a grant in your financial aid package. I got a tiny grant as part of my package, and was just wondering if this was routine or not. Does about 2k worth of grants sound....too little? ....too much? Let me know. Thanks.

    I got $6000 from OSU. I'm still waiting on the financial aid package from my other two schools. My EFC was $0.

    I got $1500 from Minnesota. My EFC was $32. I'm still in the running for a bunch of scholarships though, so we'll see.

    Depends what school you go to (in-state, out-of-state, private). At my school (a state school), the standard grant size is $3,000. You should talk with your classmates to see how much they got. Some people don't like to talk about it, but it is actually very useful information in terms of knowing when to ask for more.

    Hey medravi--that's excellent. Also sent you a PM.

    I did not submit parents' info, just mine.

    Excuse me!?! Grant money!? Oh how I wish! I go to a state school and they gave me nothing. Is there something wrong with this picture, or do not all schools give grant money?
