Cornell is great about giving aid to those who need it and actually gave me the nicest financial package out of the schools I applied to, but nowadays no matter how much financial aid you get it's almost never enough. They do raise the cost of tuition annually and not the cost of financial aid, which sucks. I suggest looking for scholarships you can get from outside services because the aid you get is not going to be enough in the long run.

The financial aid is really bad here. If you want your aid to look about the same, then every year, you need to win an outside scholarship of about $3,000. The tuition goes up about $2500 every year, and they usually increase the student activity fees and meal plan fees. What sucks is that they don't give you more financial aid to make up for the increase in tuition, so you end up paying more and more every year.

They are usually very good at giving away financial aid. However, whatever you get freshman year is what your award will be. It also doesn't take into account hikes in tuition- so basically your award gets smaller every year.

As long as you do what you need to do Cornell is good about the rest. Cornell matched the grants the government awarded me so my loans aren't that bad considering the yearly tuition.

Could Have Been Less Defensive, More Helpful – I felt as though the FA representative was very defensive, as if I were attempting to take advantage. That said, the process has been going smoothly and we will see what type of aid I can receive. I just wish that I felt more confident that FA was on my side.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
