Unimpressed3D Posted October 31, 2015 Share Posted October 31, 2015 I don't even know if I'll need one, but I'm trying to see what my options are, just to stave off fears of not being able to attend at all. I haven't even looked into grants and scholarships. I know it might be shooting myself in the foot, but I'm coming out of a dark place in my life, and just need to reassure myself that grad school is possible at all. I realize, too, that I might get a terrible interest rate and all the rest. I still just need to know that it's a last-resort option. What I'm finding on the internet so far seems...slightly suspect to me. I wonder if some of these companies are even legit. I'm planning to visit my university's financial aid office, but it was no help at my old college.I have a 4.0, did AmeriCorps and service-learning, and I just had a paper accepted at a conference, but I also have (quite a few) W's on my transcript due to ongoing health problems. I don't know what my chances are of getting funding at that rate. I don't know if it's realistic or not, but I just find it hard to believe I have a chance in the competition.
