did your parents complete their 2003 US tax returns yet?

bump

Mine completed theirs and mailed it in January.

Okay, thanks. Mine will hound their accountant about it tomorrow, who has yet to complete it. MIT financial aid told me they couldn't do anything until they get the 2003 returns, so I'm waiting.

hey,Tbone I got my aid estimate without sending my parent's 2003 tax return. The estimate was tentative though. Also, I suggest sending your 2003 return by fax. It speeds up the process. I did that and they confirmed receiving it in a day.

Thanks for the tip, Tonguelash. I sent the 2002 tax return next day air and they confirmed it four to five days later. I'll fax the 2003 tax return.

yeah, they can make a package without the 2003 forms, mine won't be ready for two weeks.

I got my financial aid package today from MIT. They are giving me full ride.

By Angrod (Angrod) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 07:21 pm: Edit

When you say full ride, do you mean they pay everything except the 1500 in summer work and the 5500 student work/loans?

By Alex614 (Alex614) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 08:03 pm: Edit

They still expect me, the student, to make the summer contribution or to get a job for an extra $1,000, but I can provide that with a scholarship. They gave me about $41,300.
