It was all paid off last year because I got a personal loan in order to pay other things as well as my lasik in full, I think that should count towards a deduction... maybe I'm just stupid and don't know how to do any of that, but I feel like I'm being robbed of trying to get an education since they will not allow me to qualify for the pell grant. I don't understand, and frankly frustrated over the whole situation. Part of my frustration is having limited access to the internet as it is... I feel like my time is running out to apply to scholarships! This year I have unexpected expenses: car repairs of $6,000+ because I got into an accident. I'm seriously living paycheck to paycheck and have been ever since I started working!
Sorry, I'm ranting. I'm not giving up on scholarships, but I feel that if I don't get the Pell Grant along with scholarships, or many scholarships I wont be able to pay my tuition. Right now I cannot get the Pell Grant. I don't have family assistance, why does the fafsa give a stupid EFC # when I don't live with family and I am an independant??
