Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is expensive, as well as housing, but I do believe I am getting my money's worth.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Point Blank, the Academy is expensive but worth it. The teachers you come in contact with, the skills you develop and even the other actors you come in contact with while there makes the money worth it.
The Financial Aid is really good, but it's first come, first served. Financial Aid is not something you want to do at the last minute, because there could very well be none left. As a First Year (when you enter the school), there is a Honor Scholarship, and a Need Base Scholarship. This is added to both the FASFA and TAP (If you are a NY resident).
Roberto Lopez, he's the one you sit down with to discuss Financial Aid, does his best to get you the financial aid you need. I had to take out loans even with the financial aid I received but I see it as investing in my future, (I realize this option is an absolute no for some.) He answers any questions you have and he gives you a breakdown as to what your Aid pays and what you will have to pay, if there's any left. He also discusses loans with you if your interested.
The good thing about the schools policy is that you have at least a month to get your money back if you decide their school is not the school for you.
There's also a payment plan, which tells you how much you would have to pay each month in order to fill the gap. (This is a last resort, Roberto Lopez does all he can to ensure that your tuition is payed for.) There is also work-study available: from working in the library to working with the costume department.
The best way to get financial aid is do it on time, and keep in touch about updates or concerns.

Tuition & Financial Aid: This school definitely gave me more money than the larger universities but it is incredibly expensive and I could have used a lot more financial help than given especially since its only a two year program. The fact you live in the city is also exciting but extremely expensive so it would have been nice to receive more money because of that. and lastly there is no food program so you have to shop for yourself which also is very unkind to your wallet, especially living in the city.

Tuition & Financial Aid: There are many workshop classes in NYC you can take that will teach you just about as much about acting method that I learned at AADA for anywhere between 1/10th - 1/50th the price of AADA. If you really want a degree or college credits for your specialized education- go all the way and attend a major university.
