Would YOU give me another chance? - page 2
Hi everyone. I haven't posted much, but I read posts everyday and have seen the incredible amount of support this board can provide. I am in the process of a financial aid appeal at my local... Read More
Jul 31, '03Anjie Good luck to you in obtaining your goals. You have received excellent advice. I wish you nothing but the best, and hope your revision of this letter helps. But if it doesn't...go forward anyway.
Jul 31, '03good letter
but, take out all the "at...."
use periods or commas, not ..., and at.... doesn't make any sense.
lol, anyway, good luck!
Jul 31, '03You're letter is great...I think that you will not have any problems. Reading your posting was like looking into a mirror. I started an ADN program back in 1996 but because of hubby, kids and a good paying job, I gave up school. Now, I'm back and I'm determined to finish. I'm going back into my second semester after a three year absence. Am I nervous..yes - but also very determined. I can tell you from experience that the times that lie ahead for you will not be easy. You will be frustrated and tempted to through it away -- but don't. The main thing that you must remember is your goal!!!! Another piece of advice..time managment will be very important. Prioritize!!! I hope hubby will help you cook and clean (mine does) you are going to need a lot of support and not only from hubby but from family and close friends. Don't be ashamed to ask for help when you need it and don't feel guility about taking time away from hubby and kids...once you're out working you'll have plenty of time.
Jul 31, '03All of you are great and I really do appreciate all of the advice! This is such a helpful message board. I would like to explain all of the "at..." stuff though. In the actual letter the .... was the name of the school I hope to attend. I just felt better not putting that in my post so I replaced the schools name with ....
No big deal, just thought I'd clarify that.
Aug 1, '03Been there (financial aid suspension, I had to withdrawl from classes for medical reasons) and Done that (appeal letter)! I wish you the best!!! If this is the first time you have been placed on suspension, you should be fine! Good Luck!!!
Aug 1, '03Best wishes...good advice all around and have nothing more to offer but my support. Hang in there!!
Aug 1, '03Hi,
I would give you another chance. I am going through the same type of problem with recieving Financial Aid at the college I am wanting to attend. I like the fact that you posted your letter to here to to get some feedback before you sent it in to the Financial Aide Office. I wish I had thought about doing that. I"ll be saying a little prayer for you.
Aug 1, '03Hi Anjie, just wanted to say good luck and your letter looked good to me! I agree with the other posters, just "tweak" it a little bit and it will be good to go. Good luck to ya and keep us posted!
Aug 1, '03Good luck. You have received some good feedback and support, we are all pulling for you!!!! Remember that most of this will be a financial decision on their part, not necessarily you as a person. I am sure they have a certain amount of money to work with and when it is gone, well, it is just gone. Just hang in there and continue to press forward with achieving your goal no matter what the outcome is at this point.
Please let us know how it goes, we are all interested!!!
