This will give you a single, direct resource for answering questions and solving problems. Appeal your financial aid package when it arrives if it is not satisfactory. Be gracious, be positive and have your reasons for requesting more funding be reasonable and justifiable. Consider appealing your award AFTER the response deadline for offers of admission.
