Chapman Still Refuses Help
Posted by Kiley Elizabeth
As much as I prefer to be positive on my blog, today kind of sucks. Fever/cold/headache all day, bleh. On top of all that, I’m even more stressed out about finances for this school year.
Financial aid was as useless as ever. My parents didn’t qualify for extra loans so I’m back at square one. I got a hold of the financial aid office (after calling for two hours, again) but they basically said there’s nothing they can do, which pisses me off to no end. Really? You can’t pull an extra couple thousand dollars from your multi-million dollar fund to help out some students in need?
There’s not really too much hope for me this semester, but I guess we’ll see. I’ve got to keep my options open – transferring, breaking into the industry now and abandoning school, taking a semester off, etc. Hopefully something will come through so that I can stay at Chapman. I’ve only got two years left and I really do enjoy going to school there. I just don’t enjoy all the bullshit that comes along with it.
As a last ditch effort, I might call up the OC register and see if they’d want to write a story about it. There’s nothing Chapman hates more than getting their reputation smudged. I got their attention faster by slandering them on Twitter than I did with emails/phone calls/messages to the office.
I want to finish college, damnit!
