Life from a different perspective
College sucks.
It's freakin' expensive to go to a school out of state. The University of Cincinatti wants $8,000+ a quarter, or $24,000+ a year. That's more than my parents made last year.

You should qualify for quite a bit of financial assistance, shouldn't you?

I have no idea where to go to find out what all is available for me. I filled out the FAFSA yesterday but that's it so far.

I'm hoping I can brush up on Algebra and study Calculus so that I don't have to take three semesters of math classes before I can get involved in Computer Science.

Talk to the colleges financial aid or student counselor offices for info on what options might be available to you.

I looked at the scholarships that UC has information for and there's only one I remotely qualify for (I'm not a person of color, i'm not an art major, I'm not going to be a nurse, I don't have scottish blood (as far as I know), etc). The one possibility is an honors society with a $75 fee to join and even then might not get a scholarship from them. 20% of their members have a 4.0 GPA and the average GPA is 3.6.

As for the college financial aid itself, they only deal in FAFSA. I just found out there's an error in my form so I have to make a correction, except the correction form only sees the FAFSA I filled out in Louisiana last year.

It'll probably be loans the entire way. X-| That's gonna suck paying them back, even if the rate is extremely low.

I'll probably send an email to someone in financial aid tonight or tomorrow anyway to see if they know any more possibilities.
