I got in, how do I pay for it?

Well, today I got my acceptance into the University of Montana.  Hurray.

Considering I have been working on this for nearly a year now I am pretty pumped.  But one thing, they did not include anything about financial aid.  So now I am left wondering what that means. 

To put it bluntly, as a Canadian going to a US school, it would be an astronomical cost to attend without some form of financial aid.  I have been hoping for a Teacher’s Assistant position which would negate most of the costs and I would have given me a bit of extra money.

So now I wait for the other shoe to drop.  Hopefully it drops well.

    Way to go, Jon. That’s great news. I expect you’ll find some way to pay for it.

    Congratulations, Jon. I imagine Montana might have some sort of TA position for grad students that would help financially.

    Congratulations! Did you fill out a FAFSA? (I don’t know if international students qualify, but it’s worth looking into.) Generally, schools use the data off of the FAFSA to determine financial aid packages.

    Oh, and generally acceptance letters and financial aid award letters come separately, so you might have to wait a week or two to find out about financial aid.

    Thanks Keri that is good to know.

    FAFSA no idea but I doubt it. (as you said we are FOREIGNERS) 😉

    Thanks David and Christopher, I appreciate your support Thanks!
