So, the deal is that I was accepted to NYU's General Studies Program and now I am having a little trouble with the financial aspect of attending. I got a $7,000 merit scholarship and about $4,000 in grants.. i got some money from a potential work study and some of my own loans. Basically, my parents would have to pay about $26,000 in loans for me to attend. We definately can't pay this... My dad is going to call the school sometime very soon to ask for more--stressing that NYU is my top choice. Has anyone done this? Did it work? I'm not sure how much more we would need, but I just wanted to get an idea of how willing NYU is to assist students who are in these situations.
Thanks

Hey-
My name is Sara and it seems like I got the exact same financial aid package as you did. I'm also GSP 2010 with a transfer to CAS. We were going to appeal as well. I hope everything works out well for both of us and we can meet in the fall!

We're in the same boat, and my mom has the same exact plan.
Good luck to you and to everyone else who is trying this!

I was in this exact situation a couple years ago when I started GSP. I appealed for more money and was relatively successful, no where near putting a dent in that $25,000, but every little bit helps!
