    Good question. On the SoN website, it says that the school has its own application for financial aid, which you have to fill out separately. This made it sound as if the SoN does give out some need based aid. That is what I was asking about. I didn't realize that federal loans, etc. through FAFSA are not determined until the summer.
    According to the lady I spoke with, that separate/JHU specific financial aid application becomes available to students once they submit their deposit. At least that is my understanding. I would check with the Financial Aid office at JHU SON.

    No packet for me, either, yet, and I live in Baltimore! I called yesterday to ask if I should be worried I had not received it, but was told no, that they went out late last week and the holiday probably held things up. Can someone who got their packet tell me: Was financial aid information included?
    I'm curious to hear about how you like Baltimore! There were some pretty disheartening reports on crime rates that came out late summer, but I'd love to hear your perspective. Feeling safe in my own home at night is a huge thing for me (as it is for everyone I'm sure), and I'm just not sure what to think. Another factor is that I don't love the idea of living in a giant complex. My husband and I were looking at row homes in Canton/Charles Village.
    It's crazy that NYC is safer than Baltimore!

    I just got a reply from the financial aid office at JHU and they said that they do not offer need-based aid!!

    I grew up in Baltimore, and have lived here all my life except for during college. (I graduated from the University of Oregon last June with my degree in Chinese language.) I love it here! Yes, like in most major urban areas, there is crime, and yes, it is disturbing. However, I would say that in general, you are quite safe in Baltimore if you are alert and aware, and practice common sense. Example: don't go wandering around alone at 2 a.m. holding your cell phone in your hand. Baltimore is a great city that offers you a lot of fun things to do (good restaurants, fun shopping, nightlife, music, etc.)

    I would highly recommend baltimore to anyone. It's only a 40 minute train ride to DC as well. Ive been living in DC for the last couple years and I honestly think its one of the best cities in America. There is always stuff to do here and so much to see. But I agree with JulietMei, any major urban city has its crime. Just need to have common sense

    And you could always (if you are not as comfortable living in a strictly urban environment) live near where I grew up, which is slightly north of the county line. Very close to the city, but also close to a lot of good stuff in the county, including Wegman's (best grocery store) in northern Baltimore County. The community where I grew up is called Rodgers Forge/Gaywood, and it is especially great for young families. Lovely row-homes/townhomes on pretty streets, great public schools (for those with kids), and nice public spaces, such as the Rodgers Forge Tot Lot. Check it out. It takes about 10-15 minutes to drive to Hopkins from there.

    I feel you. My estimates are putting the total program cost (with living expenses, food, travel, etc.) at around $150K. This is a really difficult decision to have to make.

    Did anyone's acceptance letter stipulate the date on which the deposit is due? Mine didn't have the date anywhere, yet it says that we must make a deposit to hold our place by the date on the admissions/acceptance letter. I know someone here said January 24. But where did that date come from?

    You have to log in to the link they sent in the email and set up your account. It says Friday, January 26 in that application portal. That you access via the decision email they should have sent you.

    Not sure if there is simply a discrepancy between the online date and the packet, but my packet listed the due date for decisions as January 24 (jsyk)!

    Wow, that is interesting. Thanks for sharing. So it may be different for everyone or they may be flexible with their date.

    Actually, to clear things up the date was not in the portal but in the actual letter. Sorry!!! It may be different for everyone depending on when you get accepted.
