Yale GEPN Fall 2010 - page 21

Okay, I know it's early, but Yale is my first choice, and I'm already terrified that I'm going to screw it up. My goal is New England (although I'm also applying to Pace because they have this... Read More

    Is there a facebook group to join for Yale GEPN 2013?
    I just checked and Student Affairs will be starting a FB group after the desposit deadline. They send out an email with a bunch of info at the beginning of April and the details will be inside.

    I just got my financial aid yesterday...no surprises I guess. I'm 95% sure that I'm coming to Yale. Anyone definitely coming?
  6. by   samsam72
    Javabean-- 98% sure as well.

    Eazye, I'm coming from Oakland-- was thinking about the move... and shipping everything from the west coast! ($$$). Do you have any thoughts on what you will do?

    yeah its crazy expensive to move stuff across country. i have a teenager and pets, so i have all kinds of baggage, both literally and figuratively.

    i'm thinking of just getting rid of almost everything and then pulling a smallish trailer behind my car. but if/when i decide for sure i'm going maybe we should talk because if we found a way to share moving costs that could work. there's some stuff i just would hate to leave behind.

    what are other west coasters thinking of doing?

    I am also leaning towards accepting at Yale, but waiting to hear about a scholarship at Emory. Sorry, I live in NYC and can't offer any advice about the x-country move. Good luck with that!

    Question for everyone re: financial aid at Yale. Did any of you get Perkins loans? I was surprised to see there weren't any on my award worksheet. I thought Yale had given out Perkins in the past. Also, I am planning on making the remainder of the "total cost" out of loan money. Do you think it's best to apply for GradPLUS for living expenses/tuition money? I know the private loans have variable interest rates, so I am trying to stay away from them.

    Thanks, in advance, for your help!

    Ya, I didn't get any perkins loans either. I did get a $10, 250 scholarship which was nice. I know most people get this scholarship. Did people get about this much? I have no idea if it's good or not. Also, I think it's best to apply for grad plus loans over private loans.

    Yeah, I got my financial aid too, it was quite shocking how much debt we'll be in. I also did not get any perkins/stafford loans I'm thinking they might be available during the specialty years (I'm just guessing though). Yeah, I also got a scholarship but if was for about $9,500 which will definitely help. I will definitely be attending Yale in the fall though!

    Is anyone heading out from southern California, specifically LA?
  12. by   eazye
    hi all,

    i also got a scholarship of about 10k and YSN and stafford loans. the YSN financial aid office did not receive perkins loan funds but may later, and says GEPN students are first priority recipients.

    if there are any other single parents considering doing this program, id love to hear how youre planning to handle it, financially...
