Thanks to those of you who replied to my post about financial aid. I prayed last night that I would be able to get some extra aid and spoke with my financial aid officer today.
I was told that I am recieving the maximun amount of loans for subsidized and unsubsidized as possible for each semester. I make too much money to qualify for a pell grant~WHATEVER. Although since I will only be working part time this upcomming semester, I can re-apply for the pell grant after 10 weeks of my change of status at work. Please pray for me, that I will be eligible in November.
The good news is that after I told the financial aid officer that I pretty much had a choice to buy my books, or pay my car payment he was able to put a $1,000 scholarship
onto my account just like that. The scholarship will be split between the fall and spring semester, so I will be getting $500 when the semester starts to help pay for my books. This is definately a blessing. I'm single with no children, so getting any help at all is almost impossible. I am completely supporting myself on what little money I make and can't get any state assistance because my car is a 2000 and once again, aparrently the federal aid gods think that I make too much money. Maybe I should tell them to try and live on what I make? Sorry getting off subject.
Anyways thanks for the support and please remember to keep me in your prayers for when I re-apply for the pell grant in November.
