Shout out to all the future Pritzkerites out there!
im not headed to pritzker next year, but i am finishing up my bs/ba and i can tell you a few things about the apartments around campus... generally, you'll want to stay north of 61st st and east of drexel. the "college ghetto" as its affectionately known is located between 51st and 55th streets and between drexel and woodlawn. the highest concentration of college students live along woodlawn/university between 53rd and 55th. (google maps is your friend)
How is everyone progressing with the fin aid paperwork for Pritzker? I am totally at my parents' mercy and it feels less than awesome! I wanted to have it done like 3 weeks ago!
So I finally got my paperwork done. Did you call to get the deal on the packages Golden Joe? Hopefully, it comes back sooner than later.I mailed in the the signature page and tax copies last week. I kind of want to call the office to make sure they have everything. Does anyone know when financial aid packages go out?
what do you mean increasing? This might happen if you used estimated numbers for your FAFSA, and upon filing taxes and doing a correction your EFC decreases. In that case perhaps your total aid would increase?Anyone ever heard of someone's financial aid package increasing after they've already received their award letter, or is that amount pretty much final? I thought I read a post about this somewhere, but just wondering.
congrats everybody! i'm a current second year and can vouch that this was indeed true our year, at least for merit scholarships (if they do it for loans they didn't for me). after may 15th when the spots were filled and the fin aid department knew how much scholarship money they had left over they were nice enough to divvy out the surplus, don't know how they picked who got what but they were quite generous to me even after i withdrew all my other acceptances. i think this says a lot about the school considering that most schools use money as a lure and would have pocketed the cash.Anyone ever heard of someone's financial aid package increasing after they've already received their award letter, or is that amount pretty much final?
