Thread: FAFSA

    I don't know what a FASFA is. I'm filling out a FAFSA, though.
    Though thrown into banality, this is not who I am, not who I meant to be. I find my answers in my dreams.

    "All love, like fame, is fleeting, when there's no hope anymore."

    "I wrestle alone in the dark, in the deep dark, and that only I can know,
    only I can understand. You live with the threat of my extinction, I live with it too."

    Ha! FAFSA enjoyed messing with me online for months, with the pin and whatnot (which they snail mailed to me), till I just went to my university, said "You have my money. Pretty please?" and kept coming back till they processed it. The application can sit in the database at your university till they decide to process it - and they can have a backlog. (At least this was what I was told.)

    They did a rush job in the last week before classes when I had to register because I brought snickerdoodles and chocolate chip cookies for them.

    Haha! DAMN! I hope I don't have that much trouble.

    funny how even with all the internet, databases, automated processing, all to make our lives easier and more efficient, it still came down to good old fashioned bribery. lolz

    It was the very first application for student loans I'd ever done, so it had to go through all the appropriate venues before giving me money. After that you simply re-apply each year, which is less annoying. Slightly.

    Also, if one picked the right variety for each Prime Minister and whatnot, I think cookies could be just the thing to initiate world peace.

    I'm a first gen college student, so I had to fill out the FAFSA and all other official college things all by myself. In the end, it wasn't that confusing, but still pretty overwhelming... I think if I would have had a problem with my pin like that, my head would have exploded. I hope things get worked out for you.

    FAFSA stinks. They always get stuff wrong. It's a pain in the ass to fill out. Either you are really poor in which case you get everything, or you're really rich, in which case you don't need anything. Everyone else gets screwed.

    Okay, I'm exaggerating, but damn...

    ^ You're not exaggerating, that sounds quite accurate.

    I never have any issues with FAFSA, but i'm glad i only have to deal with it once a year.

    also it is true that its hard to actually get any financial aid. When i lived with my dad, i couldn't get any at all. They don't take enough factors into consideration at all. Now i'm glad i'm lower middle class so i can get some funds.
