I've been paying for school all along with my own money, and it's hard to do that. So I know if I get into clinicals in the fall, I will need assistance. How do you figure out how much you need? For example, if you know you need $8,000 for classes, books, etc., do you calculate any extra on your own for cost of living, etc. then apply for a certain amount? Please advise.
I'm so overwhelmed by the whole process.
