    Get started early on financial aid requests! They have a lot of paper work for you to fill out and find old copies of ect.
    Does anyone know if LSU New Orleans campus has any kind of child care center? I can't find anything on their web page, but it seems worth asking...

    Thank you all so much! My doctors appointment is tomorrow; it sounds like the financial aid at LSU is a pain, not looking forward to that. Still excited though!

    I'm sorry about the financial aid. Its funny how much they seem to think we can get by on. You know you can get private school loans through the same company... I think they have high interest rates that aren't fixed. But if you are in a tight spot you might look in to it.
    I just had to call fin aid today cause I hadn't gotten any e-mail from the loan company. It turned out they hadn't received my Stafford entrance confirmation, if you haven't heard anything, you might check your LSU e-mail account for an e-mail from LSU fin aid.
    Also - there is more compliance training to take care of! I just found it this morning:
    I don't know if that link will work or not.
    I sure am glad we have this thread so we can all look out for each other!!

    It was a notification in my LSU e-mail - it was for computer safety. About viruses and protecting your password and such. If that doesn't sound familiar maybe you'll get an e-mail about it soon.

    yeah i should be fine, i have more student loan debt than i know what to do with anyway! i just found it funny that my freshmen year at southeastern they gave me $10,000, seriously...though i did use every last bit to stay in the dorm that year! LSU's fin aid is a whole different world! finally got all my health forms completed, after hounding the doctor's office for my titer results and calling another hospital to get my most recent tetanus shot record! phew... are we there yet?!?! i will be dropping off the health forms and waiting patiently for my advising season!

    Happy Thanksgiving...I know I certainly am thankful of a lot of things:spin:
