elgreco Posted March 2, 2017 Share Posted March 2, 2017 Hi all, Does anyone have experience with the financial aid at Williams' grad art program? I was waitlisted yesterday with the following email: "You are currently wait-listed for admission to Williams, including financial aid. Your chances for admission are pretty good." It sounds like, if a spot opens up, they won't be offering me a merit fellowship, but I will be eligible for need-based financial aid. For context, I'm financially independent from my parents (meaning I won't file their tax returns on my FAFSA and won't provide them unless Williams asks), and my income last year was just under $30k. It seems like a long shot to expect a full need-based scholarship, but I don't really have any money to pay for grad school, and my parents aren't contributing anything. This is definitely not a degree I'm willing to take out loans for. So can anyone vouch for the quality of the program's financial aid? I have a full fellowship at a good but less prestigious master's program, but obviously I would like to pursue Williams if there's a possibility it will be financially feasible. Thanks for any insights y'all can offer. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
