I’ve added a new category to the blog page. Organizing posts on the topic of Paying for Grad School seemed long overdue. Just knowing the category is there might prompt me to write more on the topic, and not necessarily only about Fletcher policy. Sometimes it will be more along the lines of, “Stop ignoring this big issue. Let’s talk about it.”
And here’s the first bit of info. A short while back, the Admissions staff sat down with our contact in the University’s Student Financial Services office. She helped us understand better how she puts together a student’s overall financial aid package. (Within Fletcher, we only award Fletcher scholarships, and have no official responsibility for loan programs.) She said she often refers students to finaid.org, specifically because of the site’s useful calculators. Check it out soon! If you’re just getting started on applying to grad school, now is also the perfect time to start thinking about how you’ll pay for your education.
