    What's a nubile student loan?
    I'd never heard the term before, so I did a Google search -- and all that came up were links to "naughty sites"
    I'm thinking that in college, I didn't explore anywhere near all the financial aid possibilities...

    Re: Starting College or Going Back

    I have no idea. Auto correct on my phone did that. I sometimes love my auto correct and I sometimes hate it.

    Well the bad news is that I cannot go back to school in August. That $1400 is Pell Grant money that needs to be repaid and therefore, even setting up a payment plan on it, I can't reapply for it again for 6 months. I'm reqesting a hearing as it's a mistake the school made, but honestly, I doubt it will make much difference. Or at least that is what my financial aid advisor told me. I need that 2500 for tuition as the loan amount I get won't cover my tuition and books in the new online program and as I will be out of state, it definetly won't cover out of state tuition at a local college and it does look like we will be in Alabama before the end of July.

    So January is the earliest I can go back. But I got a lot accomplished and it's now just a matter of paying off the government and waiting.

    Maybe it would be a good idea, then, to look into some sort of "nubile student" financial aid. From what I found on the Google search, it seems as there would be a good amount of money in it!

    Major bummer, MRD. I'm behind and am just seeing this now about the fall semester but I have my fingers crossed that everything works out smoothly for the spring semester.

    Great story about your Mom, RC, and congrats to you and Missy and Kao and everyone else heading back in the fall. Looking forward to hearing updates if you guys have time.

    Re: Starting College or Going Back

    I haven't posted here in a long time (though I still read recaps and interviews from time to time), but I remembered this thread and wanted to come back for an update. In a little more than a month, I will finally be graduating with a B.S. in Psychology (concentration in perceptual brain sciences) from CSU. In the fall of 2013, I'll hopefully be starting graduate school for Cognitive Neuroscience somewhere close. I'm working for a year first to have time to study for my tests and graduate school applications. Anyway, I just wanted to update everyone so that if you're trying to go back to school or in the midst of going back-there is an end eventually! I'm excited to be finishing up and I wish all of you the best of luck in your own endeavors.
