Here in the Office of Admission we are gearing up for our fall travel season. A couple of our directors have already hit the road with most of us joining them within the next week.
Before heading out I wanted to point out a resource we have available on our website for students curious about how Carnegie Mellon's financial aid system plays out. We offer a financial estimate form
on our website. This form requests estimates of financial data that will eventually be included in your financial aid application such as income and taxes paid. We then use the estimates you provide us to create an estimated financial aid package. The more accurate your estimates are the more accurate our estimated package can be. While this won't tell you exactly what your financial aid package would be, it can provide some guidance in the process.
