It looks like I received more financial aid at another school. How can I compare my Lesley award letter to offers from another school?

Always look at the bottom line: your direct out-of-pocket costs. Deduct the financial aid you received from the total direct costs of the school. Use this figure to compare the direct costs at Lesley with any other schools you are considering. If you're applying for federal financial aid, the amount you are eligible to receive should be very similar at any of the schools you're considering.
