Everyone I know has looked into it and gets the same thing. File your own taxes, so what. Your family not willing to help, doesn't matter unless you are married with children of your own.
I am trying for another $700 scholarship
which only required a 3.5 gpa or above to apply and mine is 3.8. I doubt I will get it though, they sent out letters so you know a million people applied. Tempted to look through my geneology and find some minority status. I know a girl who did it, she had some Native American in her background and qualified for some stuff that way.
