So, my DS won a 3 year scholarship to RPI. Happy to report he was accepted too. However, the financial aid award letter for his freshman year arrived and I was a little shocked at the aid, or more correctly, the lack of aid. We were told, by both RPI Admissions and ROTC staff, that if DS won a 3 year scholarship, that RPI would offer a very generous package that would cover nearly the entire freshman year. Now, after getting the award letter, it does not seem to be the case. Furthermore, RPI's website has a financial aid forecaster to give you an "approximate" idea of the college's costs. You plug all your data in and it spits out an estimated cost to attend. Well, that estimate was off by over $23,000. So, you might understand the shock I just got. Question for previous 3 year AROTC winners at RPI? What was the financial aid policy for freshman year when you went? Can you please tell me how long ago it was so I can understand when or if the policy changed? Thanks so much.
