Location: Indiana University, Kokomo Campus - Kelley Student Center Item of Business: Financial Aid Description: I went to the financial aid office to drop off some paperwork and to check on the status of everything else. When I asked the gentleman if they had received my paperwork from the Vocational Rehabillitation office, he said, "If we did it won't matter until this stuff has cleared. Have you registered for classes yet?"

I replied with "no", to which he responded something that I was fearing: "If you register now, you'll have to pay for your classes up front, then be reimbursed when your aid is processed."

Typically, it takes 4 to 6 weeks for that kind of thing to clear, so I highly doubt I'll be going there this fall.

Location: Home, Rensselaer Item of Business: Reporting the status to Mom and Dad Description: When I informed Mom about it, I reinstated the point that it is primarily IUK's fault, considering I only received anything from them about my financial aid once, then never heard anything more after that. Add to this the fact that all the advisors have been out of the office for the summer, and you've got a nice case of "It's all their fault".

Mom suggested that I move to Kansas or an area like that, and study meterology. After a bit of discussion, the thought was changed to Purdue University. I would much rather go to Purdue than some out of state school, because #1 - I have all my finances taken care of by in-state grants and assistance programs, #2 - I'll be close enough to home, and #3 - A friend has already told me that I can live there until I can afford my own place, and his place is only about 15 minutes from the Purdue campus.

So you're not going to IUK now?

I don't know yet. I won't know until next Tuesday. They will either tell me I don't have my aid cleared yet or I do, and that will be the determining factor.
