I’m completing my Master Promissory Note for federal loans and I find these instructions very controversial:

  • List two persons with different U.S. addresses who do not live with you and who have known you for at least three years. If you are a parent borrower, do not list the student.
  • The first reference should be a parent or legal guardian.

like wtf? first you tell me to list people who don’t live with me and then you tell me the first contact has to be my parent, who just so happens to live with me/i live with them?

i am thoroughly confused. so should i list my parent or someone else like my aunt for the first contact?

holy geezus how do people afford college

I’m appealing to BU for a reconsideration of the financial aid package they offered me, so I’m required to send in my dad’s federal income tax return and his W-2 form to the office of financial assistance.

I’m really nervous about having to send those two forms in via mail (or through any medium/method of communication), actually, because that stuff has like, everything on it—social security numbers, everything financial-related…

Is sending that stuff via regular air mail safe? 

And has anyone ever appealed to BU for a reconsideration in financial aid before?

I just came back from meeting with, let me call him, Hugh* Stegner, someone my career counselor personally recommended I talk to in terms of better understanding the financial aspect of college.
