Just filled out the FAFSA for Spring semester.  I am not hopeful that it will net anything, but it is necessary, esp. if we need some sort of loan.

 

We had not bothered because we knew he wouldn't get anything for CC and we planned on a 4 year NEXT year....but things are playing out differently.  

 

He may be going to a 4 year school in 4 months!!!!!!!  

 

Such an exciting time.

We realized he really isn't getting much out of the community college.  And for what he wants and where he is going, he is spinning his wheels, very little will transfer.

I hope he gets into a great (and affordable) four year for spring!

Yup. That's the time to cut-and-run. Better now than later.

 

My oldest loved the community college and got guaranteed admission to a competitive business school that's he's loving. Totally different situation!

Affordable is all relative isn't it?  It is private and higher than state school, although we haven't gotten the financial package yet, which may help.  

 

But it is the RIGHT place for him and we are willing to pay.....so, there ya go.
