I mean, I spent $32 yesterday on a book full of scholarships. I've applied for as many as I can, but even with excellent test scores, a 3.9
cumulative GPA and 4.3 last term, and being in the top 10%, somehow I didn't qualify for many of them. I'm still waiting to hear on some, but it
would take a miracle.
My dad only worked from Feb. to Dec. in 2008, but that's all colleges see, and even though he was laid off now it was a good job, so college and the
government can't pay for anything, they can only look at how much he made in 2008.
My boyfriend applied to the same college and he is waiting to hear back. If we both get in, we would try to get a cheap apartment third trimester of
our first year, and it would cut back a little bit on college. If he gets a lot of financial aid, we'll both work to fund my education.
It's ridiculous. I can't freaking pay to go to my top choice school, and they can't do anything about it. I need to take out tens of thousands of
dollars in loans...
