Waiting on funding offers?

When is the right time to ask your schools about funding offers? One of my schools mentioned in my admission email that they'd be sending out financial aid in a separate letter but it's been over a month--with only a couple weeks until my deposits are due, I'm wondering if I should follow up?

I would email them all immediately and ask the status of funding. You can’t be expected to make an informed decision without it.

I'm still waiting on funding info from one of the schools that accepted me (it should be coming out this week or next). I'm also on the waitlist for funding at another school, but I didn't know this until I reached out to the director of the program and asked. It's not an uncommon position to be in, even this late in the game. That said, you should definitely send out some emails. It's not rude at all, since it's a vital part of the decision-making process.

What a ridiculous question.  Yes, call them immediately.
