Scholarships? Get a job? If you "need" to go to school there is other ways to make it bucko.

Rob a bank? If your smart enough that should work. Other then that you can try to find a oop hole in the goverment that gives you the money for the scholarship.

Same thing happened to me... I had to join the Reserves, plus had a job all through college... In the mean time, tell your parents to quit claiming you on their taxes, if you live on your own they shouldn't be claiming you anyway... When they don't claim you as a dependent you will be able to get all the loans you want... Also look for grants etc...

I know it can be hard, and really, I wish I was rich so I could help you out. I will see what I can do over my next few paydays for you Sod. Dont stress, life has a way of working out in the end.

Exactly right...check out local scholarships too. Some can be real easy to get.

Freedom is the key.

Also, you should consider completely separating yourself from your parents financially - they may make too much money for loans but you definitely dont...

Tell your parents to either shell out the cash for college or stop claiming you on their taxes - If you declare yourself as your sole supporter you should have no trouble getting loans.

You said you pay for rent and all? Then you dont live with you're parents? you should be able to get that loan then...as soon as I moved out of my parents house i qualified and was able to go to school with that loan.

They have to quit claiming him as a dependent, otherwise he is still considered thier dependent thus their income counts with his...

Stafford loans are good but I couldn't get as much with them as I could Phea (can't remember now if that was what they were called)... Once they quit claiming me (after my freshman year and I too lived on my own, dang money grubers ;) ) I was able to get what I needed easily...
