I'm basically fucked right now.
I'm in nursing school at a local communityish college, but I spent a few years getting my footing, basically it turns out that the max on Federal Student loans is something like 57k and I'm at 51k before this semester even starts. That sucks balls, but even worse, I have about a year and a half of school left after this semester. I really have no idea what my options are, I've been applying for scholarships and grants like a mad man, but no one I know has any idea how to pay for school if you can't get federal loan money. I guess private loans are an option, but man, that would put me into like 30k in debt to a private loan place and thats even assuming they give it to me.
I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with this sort of thing, or had any advice. I really appricate it.
