I got some great news today. I have a chance at getting a full ride for all four years of college. I received a letter in the mail today telling me that, due to the financial crisis we put down on our Student Federal Aid form and my academic achievements for the past four years, I am eligible to be in a program at my college that would, under a few conditions, pay for all four years of a bachelor degree. Thats really kind of funny, because we're not terribly poor and I only took all regular classes through high school, though I did have all A's in them. I'd have to enroll in x amount of classes and live on campus, which I wasn't planning on, but hey, I'd rather exit college debt free than live with my brother* for a year, hands down. They will send me a contract to sign, and I have to have that in as soon as possible, otherwise I might not get in the program (it's only open to 500 students). I'll post a new blog when more develops.
*I was planning on living with my brother through college. We picked an apartment that was the same distance from my college as it was from the airport (he's an airline pilot) and we already signed the lease..
