The financial aid office is here to help you make sense of your financial situation, whether it's scholarships, loans, or anything else. Your time in college is meant to prepare you for the future, and this should include preparing you to handle money on your own.
A modern day poet once wrote, “mo’ money, mo’ problems.” Guess that guy never had to pay for college. As a senior, it can be quite daunting for you (and if not you, your parents) to think about how you’re going to be able to afford a solid college education. We hear that all the time in the Admissions Office. “There’s no way I can afford to go to a private university.” Or “Yeah, MC is great and all, but I just can’t afford it.”
