Well I am trying to get into a LPN technical program. I have done great on the test I have taken so far and according to one of my advisors at the school there is no way they wont let me in bc of my ambition and past 4 yrs experience as a CNA (bc most the people trying to get in this program are laid off and ofcourse a few that just have never been in the medical field) Anyhow I have spent time and money going to all these meetings about financial aide and seeing if you can get help from the gov't. I was just going to use student loans, but I just found out a couple of weeks ago that they don't do student loans, so I went to see if I qualify for any help, and ofcourse not I make too much money!?! Well ofcourse i do when I have to keep insurance on myself and have bills to pay, but i had wonderful family members that were going to take care of my bills so i didn't have to stress about money this year and could concentrate on school. I have tried everything that I can think of, but now I have no where else to turn, I guess this is good-bye for now and rearranging my next 10 yrs due to the stupid gov't policies on helping people. Life just sucks right now......

AWE this is awful, bt i know how u feel, the school I am going to does not take student loans, only grants or money from students. I am so thankful i can get in. I am going to school through TANF, (they will pay for my tuition, book ,supplies , child care and the gas i use to go to school. THANK GOD!!) and i barely made the cut at 36,500. But i know of some states that require u to make way to low to get assistant from the goverment an i think that sad, i have a friend who has 4 kids and lives in GA, and our family income is way higer than hers and she didn't qualify for it
. This sort of this confuses me since it cost more to live IN GA than LA.
Does your school work through any other AID, like I think one is JTPA, WIA etc, , don't give up!!
By the way did u fill out a FASA, this may help u get a pell grant!!
