2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It takes so oong for them to notify you if domething is kissing there are somany steps and no help in guidamce

2 College Junior

Scholarships: First off, the Financial Aid Office's customer service is great. Always remember they mean well and want to help, even when the numbers are higher than you expected. They will almost always waive the late fee, as long as you're communicating. They understand our pain as students because they all were there. My 2 star rating is not intended for them!

But really, it's just stingy BU. They don't award much money, especially if your parents filed a tax return extension and BU has to wait around until August for your tax information. However, that part is out of their control because money runs out. Can't argue that one, only can complain. Graduating with debt (usually more than a few thousand dollars) is just a part of the culture here. I should add that I know one or two people here on full scholarship, but this is usually merit-based rather than need-based. Unless you have the money stashed away or you won a full scholarship, you will probably run around looking for money. My real question is: why can we afford smart phones and pretty laptops but not an education?

MY ADVICE, and please take this advice: Start early!! Don't wait until you're packing for college to look for scholarships--more importantly, don't wait until you're in college. Apply to everything that comes your way. Take surveys like this one, write essays, and enter no-essay scholarship contests daily! Even, or especially, the $100-$600 contests. Just because you run into $10,000 scholarships doesn't rule out the little guys. Those may mean tens of thousands of dollars. To all high schoolers planning on attending college, those tuition bills are coming way sooner than you think, and there is SO much money out there, all you have to do is write a few short essays.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process is easy, just submit FAFSA, PROFILE, and IDOC. Problem is the cutoff for merit scholarships is very high for a school with such rampant grade deflation.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office at BU is extremely helpful so I recommend calling with any questions you have because the documents can sometimes be a hassle to fill out! Just make sure to get everything in by the deadlines!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a $20,000 per year scholarship without applying.
