So yeah. I need to break out of my current life and get back in school. I went to one year and am currently paying for it (literally) working 2 jobs and running myself raggad. At 20 years old I shouldn't be having to do this yet. I plan on trying to get into Ivy Tech near here and take a 2 year nursing course and in the following years after that (while working as a nurse) try for my PHD. Problem: I can't get loans from ANYONE.
My parents just divorced this last September (so sept. of 06) so last year when I tied to get loans for the year I DID get to go to school, it was a government loan you pay back right away. My parents credit is fucked, as is my sisters and grandmothers. I have no credit, so taking a regular college loan is sort of out of the question, as I have no co-signer and cannot just plain get one. The government? I can get like 2000 from them. Not bad as its money, but not enough to go to school full time as working my full-time and part time night job barely earn me enough to survive. I get a small scholarship from Ford where my dad work, 1500 and like a said, its money and that combined with what the governments gives me is more then enough to actully goto school, but leaves me without food and home.
So thats why my problem is. I do not know if my parents being divorced now would help me in anyway, but for the most part whith what digging I have done I have found that beacause I am white and american know one wants to help me
. Any help from anyone in the know would be greatly appricated.
Thanks in advance.
