should've put it under moms. how many times do i have to tell u ?
I know :(
I will next year, but as of now I HAVE to file under my father's income because I've been living with him. Once I'm living with neither though, it will be time to do that (and do it legally).
So, hopefully next year I will get some financial help.
legally schmegally, just cuz u live with one parent dont mean u cant be claimed under the other dork.
Aww, so you mean I don't have to get married early after all? lmao.
And yeah, I could have gotten away with it. But I'd rather not take a chance--it's the government we're dealing with here! The potential risk, in my mind, vastly overshadows the potential gain.
hahhhhhhhh ur white, they wont do shit.
now if it was me id get audited up the ass :(
So, they only enjoy investigating the asses of non-whites? What a bunch of screwed-up, fetish-ridden individuals! lol.
have you considered going to a JC and saving up money until you're old enough to file on your own?
I would, but I'm just about ready to transfer out of mine anyway so it would be a bit of a waste. I couldn't put it off for five more years.
Plus, no JC's around that area offer housing, so I'd need to pay a lot for an apartment anyway. Either way, my checkbook's gonna be screwy for the next couple years lol.
I think its time for a vegas wedding!
Unfortunately, its the best way to get financial aid -_-
I KNOW! lol. I do admit that, after reading that, the thought came into my mind that Ari and I should marry a bit...sooner than expected. But alas, that would open up even more trouble lol.
Though, it does seem like a bit of a waste for us to have been planning to marry soon after we graduate...what would the use of THAT be? lmao.
Ha! A legal marriage, maybe, to put us through college, and put off the religious one until later?
If you were to move in with us, perhaps you could necome a dependant of us? Then you'd get financial aid for being poor!
It's a shame you're not a Native American, because then you could go anywhere.
Yay for being poor! lol. Though yes, I very well could eventually. But no marriage! Marriage later...yeeeeees :)
And yeah, too bad I'm not Native American. That'd be neat anyway, though in a sad/emotional/nostalgic way.
Woah, $9500! That's insane :\ I am no help, good luck though..Im sure you'll get it figured out.
Aww yes, behold the power of university costs combined with out-of-state tuition.
On top of that, Kean University is one of the most affordable schools in the country! Looking at some other ones, I'd have to pay $10,000 for tuition alone (not even THINKING about dorms or anything). Eww.
And thank you, I'll use that luck wisely lol :)
Thanks hun, that would be a good idea. I saw that plan and it's good to know that it's there as a last resort, though the interest rates are so incredibly high that I'd be more comfortable making payments as I go and helping resolve that a bit. It would be upsetting to be stuck with all those fees after I graduate--the payments are manageable, but I'd be paying them for decades and that seems depressing lol.
Once I have that loan and am making payments, I'll be very relieved--the really worrisome thing is not knowing if I'll get a loan in the first place.
And thanks, if the payments ever get too high for me I may need to resort to that. I just want to put off that plan for as long as possible.
Thank you, I hope you're right about the maze part--I'm so tired of being lost, but the end finally seems in sight!! lol.
Ah neat! That's a great deal hun, thanks. Hooray for missing parts :)
Holly was able to talk to someone in the financial aid office and tell them that she received no aid from her parents and file as an independent. Maybe that could happen for you?
Thank you, I should try that! I know that I saw a form for something along those lines, about filing for status of independent support. Since I'm starting this year I'll probably need to wait until the next to file it, but woot! That'd be great :)
Anything to prevent a Vegas wedding...I don't like that gaudy place lol. Too many cowboys and pink tigers.
You can always file it late this year.
Why would that cause a Vegas wedding?
Good point! I should, and I'll try my best.
Well, a Vegas wedding because of the clause that unmarried people under 24 are considered dependents. Then, of course, came the delightful Mr. xalolo
's comment to fill in the rest of the thoughtfulness...lol. Yes. Vegas is evil. And so are financial weddings.
I think it's a great idea. It would help even more if you'd pop out a few babies.
Yes!! With each dependent comes more and MORE money!!
