I've heard SLC is respectable with financial aid and I don't mean to damage their reputation, but I myself and several of my acquaintances here have struggled financially to pay for Sarah Lawrence and have received little to no help from the financial aid office. Despite repeated pleas for access to more money or at least more information about scholarships and/or loans, financial aid has done little to help me other than to send me links to things I've already checked out and often haven't fully understood. I've had a poor time dealing with financial aid here and unless you're in dire need, it's tough to go here if you're from the middle class. You can certainly make it work, but expect to be in moderate debt once you graduate.

Remember New York state gives only need-based financial aid, which is frustrating to someone would have an easy time getting merit-based aid elsewhere.

I am grateful for the scholarship I received. However, SLC doesn't have a lot of money to give. They do give what they can, all they can, which I respect tremendously. It is hard to compare them to other schools that can afford to offer a full ride, but they do give all they can.

I was awarded a great academic scholarship, and I was given a lot of gift aid. Sarah Lawrence devotes an exceptional amount of its funds toward getting high-need students the help they need to stay at such a great school where they can grow— an environment that other schools can't provide.

Make sure you get it secured for all four years. I have friends who, after their freshman year, got 10k pulled off, for almost no change in status.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
