Hi Everyone, I'm interested in Rosalind Franklin's program but can't seem to get hard and fast info about their financials. I've called their clinical program contact and always get a voicemail. I've left a voicemail and emailed her. I've also emailed my POI who is suspiciously quiet about the topic. Does anyone know anything about it? Their full disclosure data says 100% financial aid, but does that mean 100% of students get $50? any info would help!!! Thanks!

I am actually very interested in any responses to this question as well, as I have had a similar experience. My POI didn't have much to say about the funding when I asked him either.

Also, i have similar questions about Marquette University's Clinical Psych program. Anyone know about the status of funding there?

I'm also applying to Rosalind Franklin. It is not easy finding info about this program. I didn't ask my POI about financial aid, partially because he was curt in his email reply.
You all probably know that its medical school was put on probation in 2004, then taken off in 2005. Around that same time they changed names from Finch University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School to Rosalind Franklin. Some details about the probation here:

I don't know if the probation had any effect on the clinical psychology program, but regardless - that's not very good. Apparently one of the reasons it was put on probation was because it was relying too heavily on student tuition to fund its operation. Not a good sign for us looking for tuition remission!

You make a very good point when it comes to funding. I am not sure how linked the two are, but since we're on the topic, GWU's medical school was just stripped of its accreditation. I am not sure how that affects the Clin Psych Ph.D. and Psy.D. programs they have, but it is definitely a concern...

I don't know about funding, but I do know tuition is pretty expensive because it's a Catholic university.
