Default F.a.f.s.a!!

FAFSA (Free Application For Student Aid)

http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/

This link helped me GREATLY !!
All you have to do is basically follow the steps.. once you have your tax return info for the year.. and submit. Wait 3 days or so and you'll get an e-mail saying, "FINANCIAL AID REWARDS." At least I did.

Since I was listed as "minority" and the first child in my family to go to college, and had a diploma, and of my race... I automatically got a $24,000 grant. Oh, and I got more grants also 'cause of my parents income. Now my Dad gets $3,000 a week but since he has 7 kids to support, alot of it is reducted or whatever, plus his trucking company helps reduct the money for the hundreds of dollars of tools to fix it up or replace tires. REDUCTING HELPS YOU GAIN MORE CHANCES OF GRANTS, ETC !! So basically, it doesn't matter how much income your family has, if you don't consider yourself poor, get to reducting and get them grants !!

You do your FAFSA every year.. you get your REWARDS every year. I'm dependent right now since I'm with my folkz. When I move out, and list myself as independent, more cash will start rolling in my e-mail and then my bank.

Comprende?

This REALLY does help. There are SOOOO MANY OPTIONS to getting grants, loans, whatever!!
I have to share this to all my gente that doesn't know about FAFSA so we can take over the world FASTER and get our MONEY BACK, MUAHAHAHAHA !!

Seriously.


Do the FAFSA !! I ain't kiddin' people, go effin' do it !!

I got over $34,000 my first time. $6,000 of that is Federal Loans. At least it ain't no $40,000 BANK LOAN !! Pssshhhh.. my booty!

So yea, ANDALEEEEEEE !!
Go get that EDUCATION for FRRREEEEEEEEE mi gente !!

K byez, have a nice day, and be successful, be wise, be smart, be all you can be.

Oh yea and you know what else?
I was never no HONOR student or a STRAIGHT "A" prep girl. Sad, but true, I was listed as "SPECIAL ED" because HELLLOOOOOO !! That's what you get for skipping classes three days a week in your freshman year. So even if you FEEL like you won't get alot of $$$ cuz you're DUMB (really, we're all smart in our own way, even your backyard doggie) DO NOT HESTITATE THE FAFSA !! If you are, you're hestitating EDUCATION !!

I'm proof you can get all that money. Oh and you know what else? I didn't graduate 2006 with no effin' 24.5 credits. I graduated with 23.5 credits !! White teachers effin' pushed me over and they're gonna regret it cuz I'mma be AT DA TOP OF DA WOOOOORLD !!

ANDALEEE !!!

Same here

Although I might qualify this year since I will be old enough to be considered independent.

Why don't you (ladiie giggles) and shortcakes qualify?

It's not a matter of "I don't qualify" to get anything from the federal or anything. I said there are MANY options. Those were options that just worked for ME.

Doesn't mean there aren't any that won't for you.

I really INSIST you do the FAFSA, both of you.

The earlier you complete your FAFSA, the more chances you get anything out of it 'cause some benefits available are only to a limit or "all take-all gone." Otherwise, some are out there all year 'round.

LOL. Doesn't matter the status, age, gender, disabilities, everybody is qualified.

Pues say you're a graduate, some will apply to you that don't apply to undergraduates. Then if you're an undergraduate, some will apply for you that don't for graduates.

Vice Versa everything.

=]

Everybody gets a little bit of something or alot of something. Ey... either way, you get SOMETHING.

Good for you, I had a couple scholarships but they ran out after I finished with two years.


How much is tuition for everyone? Where are you going to school?

This girl talks about the White teachers that pushed her and regret her getting a higher education even though she skipped school. Boy is she going to get the best of them. Hello, try being a teacher dealing with a brat punk like yourself. You don't deserve free anything.

she basically got it right, you want to get everything done before the end of april really. and it all opens up Jan. 1st. The thing with FAFSA is it's a first come first served mentality not based off of need. They only have so much money and when it's gone it's gone. that is why there really isn't a deadline, my best suggestion is have it done by Feb. but even if it's too late still fill it out for federal loans which have better interests and deferment then private loans.

I am not sure, but i would believe so, it can't hurt to try and apply.

I really hope you are not a teacher. SHe was a kid, she did childish things...they all do. That is why no one puts the responsibility of an adult on them, And trust me i've seen teachers act much worse than many students. She skipped school, so what, does that not entitle her to a better education? What kind of bitter person are you?

Final question how can you sit down and chat on the computer with a stick that far up your ass?
