Ann.without.an.e Posted April 1, 2017 Share Posted April 1, 2017 DD was asked to apply for an outside scholarship. I found out they often don't notify recipients until the first week of May! The first week of May! :banghead: Can they have worse timing? That outside aid would take Duke from the most expensive to the cheapest option for our family. Because outside aid can't be taken away from the package and can only reduce loans and work study, it would make Duke at least 3,000-5,000 cheaper than the other schools. Right now dd is thinking about scratching it because of finances. How will she feel if she does and then finds out May 5th she's earned a scholarship that would make it cheapest? And that this scholarship she's worked for will make no difference to the bottom line at her other schools (it will remove work study from one school). I just find the timing incredibly frustrating. :crying: 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
