Have you completed the FAFSA form? I have paid for school with a few scholarships but mostly federal student loans. I have been able to get enough student loans to pay for tuition, books, and supplies. Try going to your financial aid office at school, mine have always been very helpful. Also, I have had to work at least 30 hours/week to pay bills. It is not fun but can be done. Beats being in school forever. I graduate this December with my BSN. :) Good luck!!
