I am at a loss...Here are the thoughts/questions/concerns that are flying around my head... If anyone has any sugestions please chime in!
This is really a disorganized mess, my brain is friend from 12 hours of studying and tests today... it is NOT functioning...
I do not qualify for a pell grant as I have my income and my mothers income on my fafsa as I am 23 and they REQUIRE it. my mother does not help me out.But I do not make enough to even make ends meet... i am single living alone with no kids. Thought about getting a roommate but I only have one bedroom!
If I wait another year and apply for fall of 2013 I MAY qualify for a pell grant, but I am not sure and no one can tell me what the cut off is. The longer I wait the more time I spend making diddly squat and not working towards my goal of becoming an RN
With everything I can get from fafsa(including loans) it comes to about 3,000 a year.... while nursing school tuition itself comes to about 6k with about 2k for the required computer... and approx 400 more for supplies and background tests and such. and according to my advisor about 1200 for books
Do I go get a private loan for the rest... how do I know what to borrow....
They do not recommend that you work during nursing school but how do you afford not to? Do people really borrow for ALL of their living expenses also?!
who would even give me a loan for that amount.... would I be able to repay it?!
I will have to budget for gas, I live an hour from the school and they can send me up to 2 hours away from there for clinicals.
How the heck do I make this work! How did you make this work?!?!
