, we certainly will make it through! My family's never had it easy either, so I know that they can't really help me. They put a little bit into my bank account when I was in undergrad, but now that I've been on my own for over 2 years, I'm sure they won't be so welcoming to that!
, I had no idea that people had to pay 400 dollars for CPR/background checks! My background check is only like 40 or 50 dollars, but I have to get that additional one for whatever reason. I did take a CPR class a few months ago and it was only 50 dollars, but they offered it through my school, so if I had gone to an outside source, I guess it would've been closer to 100 dollars. I guess I have somewhat of a reason to be thankful, lol.
, I'm with you there--I assumed that financial aid would take care of everything, like undergrad. My university allowed us to pay tuition online and then they would either direct deposit the refunds like 2-3 business days later or they would mail them 2-3 weeks later. I chose direct deposit and I was able to buy all my books and stuff days before classes even started. If only the same were true for nursing, but we'll make it through! You sure you can't qualify for financial aid? I applied (I have a Bachelor's and I'm entering an Associates program) and I received loans. I would apply just in case--you never know, it could be your lucky day
And we might be on the same corner selling ourselves to make money, LOL!!!!
, sorry to hear about your job/flood situation...that's horrible! I would use my credit card, but I'm close to maxing that out. Stupid car maintenance!!! I really hope your situation gets much better really soon!
