    I just called the financial aid office, and they said that all accepted absn students will get financial aid email packages by this Friday at the latest.

    Hey everyone. Just wondering...for those of you who've received financial aid packages already, what are they looking like this year? I know I still have a month of waiting to find out my fate, but the cost of attendance is not out of mind. I appreciate any info

    The financial aid award notice shows the loan eligibility for 1 year: Fall 2011-End of summer 2012. They show how much can be taken from federal unsubsidized, federal subsidized and private lenders. They also break down the loans into the 3 terms- Fall, Spring, Summer. The maximum taken out from fed. subsidized is 5,500, fed. unsubsidized is 7,000, and private 62,951 for the 1 year.

    For 1 year the tuition is 48,585. They also approx. items for that year:
    Housing Allowance: 8,640
    Food Allowance: 5,880
    Books: 1,260
    Health Insurance: 1,986
    Personal Expenses and transportation: 4,380
    The total = 70,731
    From what I understand the tuition and health insurance are set prices for this year, the rest being an approximation.

    They have the maximum total financial aid that I can take out as 75,451 for the 1 year.

    I called today and found out that they awarded 6 need-base scholarships. I am not sure about the essays. Of course, they said if someone who received the scholarship decides not to attend then it will be awarded to the next person eligible.

    I hope this helps!!!!

    OMG thank you so much for all of this. Although I have one more month of waiting it's a reality check to see these numbers. Scary.

    Good luck to everyone whose waiting and congrats to those of you who were accepted on the first round! I hope we all get to meet in the fall!

    No problem! I know if I was was still waiting, I would want to know this information also. It is definitely important in making the decision on where to attend. The numbers are scary and this is only for 12 months; there still the other fall semester which isn't include in this price. Thank goodness for the possiblity of tuition reimbursement!

    Good luck to everyone still waiting! Hopefully you all will find out very soon!

    @Amanda531 - have you heard any recent info on the tuition reimbursement? I had heard awhile back that the class that finished in June 2010 had very few people hired. Do you know if that has improved?

    oaktown2-

    Yes, it has! I do not remember the exact numbers, but they did tell us during the interview. I think almost all of them had jobs after a month or so. The students started looking earlier for jobs this year also. Maybe someone else on here who attended Duke Days wrote down the exact information, but probably if you call they would be able to tell you. It definitely did get much better, and they also mentioned about the new building which was going to be opening around the time of this cohort's graduation.
