Ups and Downs
I wrote to a friend who is a teacher and is also still in graduate school at night. I asked her about funding for school. She replied that she thought one can only apply for loans for any sort of post-bacc program, so I called the financial aid office at the uni I want to attend. The guy I spoke to said I can apply for a FAFSA loan (FAFSA is "free application for student aid").
I checked the FAFSA website to see when the deadline for the fall semester is, and it said June 30, 2004.
But government incongruities aside, it is a ray of hope. If it all works out, I will have to quit this job. I think you all know how heart-broken I am about that prospect.
