I applied for my FAFSA. What further steps must I take to obtain money for the cost of living, etc? I will be losing about $2,300/month. My husband only makes $450/week. I wanted to avoid working at all during the program. If I must, I will work every other weekend. My financial aid department told me not to worry about it. Who are they kidding? I'm willing to borrow til I'm blue in the face, but who or where should I borrow from? There must be secondary loans out there for graduate students who are supporting families. Any advice? Leslie.
