I didn't apply for financial aid

I eventually received the amount of aid I needed, but I had to fight for it. Applying early for financial aid is inconvenient but possible if you keep constant contact with the financial aid office.

Brown's Financial Aid program is innovative and progressive, especially for an Ivy League university. A student who demonstrates proficient need can earn a near-full ride scholarship to Brown, can find work-study employment, and can apply for a named scholarship to further aid in their textbook or travel costs (not to mention outside scholarships). Brown is determined to bring the best and brightest, most diligent and committed students to their campus, and are both able and willing to pay the bill. Careful attention to financial aid awards, however, is important. They want to see responsibility and organization before they provide money.

Brown University's financial aid system was very satisfactory during the application process and improved during my first year after then President Ruth Simmon instituted several changes to the financial aid policy. These changes improved aid for families and students of modest economic backgrounds, which helped me profoundly.

The Brown Financial Aid office was very helpful. They help you understand that although you might want more, the need has to be there. I received the amount of aid proportionate to my parent's tax returns, which doesn't give me a ton. However, when you lose forms, you can lose out big time because they are sticklers for the rules.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
