    I'm finishing up my Junior Year PRAYING to enter and finish my senior year of undergrad.....I owe $5500 for this semester AFTER FAFSA and TAP (I live in NY). I ned to find a way to pay that off AND pay for my last year of school....my credit score is HORRIBLE therefore I can't seem to get approved for any private loans. All the programs I used to go to for Loan money are closed Thx to the recession....WHAT CAN I DO?!!! I already went to Fastweb and I have a small little page of matches that don't seem to have anything to do with anything, just the "sign up for a CHANCE at a $1000 scholarship" (yes I signed up for EVERYTHING) so it seems like life is.........[​IMG]

    ANY SUGGESTIONS??!! HELP?!!!!

    I thought the only way to get a loan now was federal?

    Join the National Guard. I was active duty myself, in the AF. Not only are all my classes paid for, but so are my books. On top of that, I get a cool tax free 11 bills/month.

    Where do you go to school? And do you qualify for work study? Do they have a payment plan? A lot of schools will do a payment plan for you if you ask...

    That was the decision, but I don't think it's actually gone into effect yet...

    I don't think he's talking about repaying loans, he's saying that he's maxed out all of his available financial aid but he still has a balance...

    No.....Do not join the military to pay for school. Join because you want to be in the military. Even the National Guard right now is almost a 100% chance of deployment. And the army is 10 months or longer for there deployments. To join for a reason other then joining will most likely lead to 8 miserable years of your life.

    Dot confuse paid tuition for tuition reimbusement. A lot of places will reimburse you, but will only pay x amount per year. Usually no where near enough to pay for full time. And you still have to have the money to pay it upfront. Very few places will pay 100% let alone pay it upfront.

    i agree with you 100 percent. people should join because they want to. not because they get paid and get schooling stuff paid for too. i think the military should take away benifits and pay...but at least provide housing for the family and our service men. and what ever the military teaches them should be recognized as career training/ experience/ or an education by all employment companies

    The millitary has a hard enough time getting people to enlist. If they start taking shit away no one would join

    Well the marines dont give benefits right now or take any waivers and are still having to turn people down. They recruiters are even scaring kids right now to only get those that want the marines. Every single recruit right now is joining because thats is what they want to do. The army and airforce on the other hand is telling people all kinds of garbage to make there quota.
