I was just wondering if anyone here has gotten in early somewhere but hasn't gotten enough financial aid?? There's got to be someone, not everyone here can afford to pay 40,000 buck a year. If so, that is really depressing.....

i've applied to columbia and dartmouth regular decision. i have a 1540 SATs and a 4.2 weighted GPA. But unless I get financial aid, I can't go to either if I'm accepted. My parents cannot afford to spend 160k on an undergraduate education for me...sigh.

It really angers me (although I should really be happy for them) when people in my school get accepted to Harvard or Cornell and can just say "I'm going to Harvard!".

There are a lot of people in this situation...but a lot are just too embarassed to talk about it. So do people like me a favor and tone it down a bit because we're not as fortunate as you are? thanks
