Hey, i was filling out my financial aid papers today and i saw that the maximum we could get is $1600. and then it said that something like we students have to now limit our expenses and live on budget. Why would i wanna limit my expenses if iam getting this much money every month? Wow! $1600 is too much for a single guy. Chicago is not Cali or NY. A good single bedroom apartment would cost me in suburbs like around $600-$750. and if i decide to share then its gonna be more cheaper like $350-400. And may be i would spend $500 on my food,etc. and may be another 100-200 on other stuff. Over all i think $1600 is a very big amount and a single person can live luxuriously. Atleast for me, if i get $1600 i can live comfortably. But iam going to stay with my parents for the next 2yrs. So i wont be needing that much. But i was really happy to see that we can get $1600 in aid. its really awesome now if my parents threaten to kick me out atleast i know i can get support from Scholl.lol! Ofcourse iam just speaking about single students. What do you guys think. is $1600 enough for you?
