    i am freaking out too! I feel like I am in the dark a/b the whole admissions process. Almost all communication I have had with the school has been through e-mail! It is nearly impossibe to get ahold of anyone at the admissions office. I had to call for two weeks to finally get ahold of the admissions advisor, and she finally e-mailed me. I have also spoken to the financial aid specialist, but she really did not have any answers for me at this point, b/c she said that the director of financial aid does all the processing.... So, I am waiting for the processing day on July 2nd and hopefully we can get some answers then...

    So July 2nd hass come and gone and I am still stressed about financial aid. Since BHSSHP is a school and not an accredited college I am having a really hard time finding a lender for a private loan because of its accreditation status. I have applied for some scholarships but I still need more to cover living expences. If you know about any other loans available other than federal subsidized/insubsidized loans (which I already have) please let me know. Thanks

    Baptist offers scholorships too. Have you checked into applying for those. I used FAFSA and recieved grants and was also able to get a loan through Sallie Mae for living expenses. Baptist has a college code # to use when applying for loans.

    I have applied for Baptist Foundations Scholarship, hopefully I will get it. I tried Sallie Mae, but it no longer funds students from Baptist health Systems, b/c it is not a "Sallie Mae approved school." Thanks for your suggestions. If you have any others, please don't hesitate...
