My Super Plan :)

A photo of cpmixtape3 cpmixtape3
hey guys im going to bba/math double degree laurier and waterloo, im going to be living at laurier because the atmosphere there is awesome!

Here's my plan for my total expenses for my first year:
Entertainment/Misc : $1000
Tuition: $5000
Residence and Food: $7000
Books: $500

so, in total that's $13500 for my first year.

my parents have a income total of $30,000, its low, and im hoping to get lots of money from that.

Here is my plan to pay them off:
Entrance Scholarship: $2000
Laurier Bursary: $2000 *****HAS ANYONE APPLIED FOR THIS? WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCES?
Other scholarships: $500...hoping
OSAP: $6000
this ends up being...$10500.
...as you can see, I dont have a Super Plan...how did you guys do it? Do you guys have any suggestions?

You got co-op, then there is savings, and part-time jobs and more scholarships.

Just go for those scholarships too; a lot of them have similar questions. You have nothing to lose, except your time, I guess. But hey! What else majorly pressing are you doing at the present time, right? In any case, are you sure the bursary is for 2000 :o? Waterloo offers a $4,500 "general" bursary. You might be able to apply for that since you are DD. Good luck!

$6k OSAP seems kinda low. Did you get this number by running their estimator https://osap.gov.on.ca/AidEstimatorWeb/enterapp/intro.xhtml?

I have tested diff. scenarios before and found that they would expect you to pay a min. of between $3 to $5k. With your program, OSAP estimated the first year total to be $17k, and they will give you about $14k (depending on your answers) equally split between loan and grant. Of course, it doesn't mean you need to take out their max funding, but it's there if you really need it.

Once you start your co-op terms, you should be fine in subsequent years.

Your osap seems off, my parents make a bit more than yours and my osap was higher so maybe you should check over your application
