    So..I did the telephone conference yester day...anybody else? It was helpful but why are folks asking the SAME questions!!? over and over and over and over!!! Some questions are answered in BLACK and WHITE in the application bulletin. I know it was frustrating for ppl like me, who had questions that were not indicated in the packet. Everybody got their stuff in already??

    It's a pity that people who have low EFCs greater than 0 have just about a 0% chance of getting this scholarship. In reality, what is the difference between an EFC of zero and one of $500? Not very much. Oh well, those are the rules.

    I wish that the deadline wasnt so early. Also the program has to start in the fall but there are so many programs that start in winter and spring and have summer terms. Next year I guess.

    i definitely agree with this. this is the first time im able to apply not only because it was my first time getting accepted, but even when i first heard of this scholarship i had an efc of 4000, because i was dependent, but i can tell you we didnt have 4000 to contribute to my education. i had to take student loans out. i think its crazy how they use the efc to determine who is need-based.

    There are obviously so many people with an EFC of 0 that they don't need to make it any higher. Even if they did, there'd have to be a cut off somewhere and the people above the cut off would be upset. This scholarship is about greatest need, not merit or anything else and this is the method they're using to determine greatest need. Makes sense to me

    I know thats how they are determining the greatest need, and I know this is a need based scholarship, I was speaking generally on terms of financial aid, not this scholarship predominately. sorry if there was confusion.

    Okay - yeah, I was only referring to the scholarship part.

    This is the first time I have applied for this scholarship. Anyone know if it is ok to mail in some of the documentation separately or if absolutely everything has to be in one envelope? Also, do I have to send in that W-4 stuff that it mentions on the checklist? I don't even know what that means. I don't file taxes because I am still a dependent with no income.
    Thanks for any help!

    you fill out a W4 and put single, its step by step, but if you're a dependent and have a child but head of household. its really easy, just follow the instructions. i sent everything all at once, i wasnt taking any chances of me not being able to mail something later

    Has everyone received this shoolarship yet? I know that no schollarships require banking information but this shoolarship does. I'm afraid that it's a scam!
