FAFSA comments in real time via Twitter | 06.13.08

Posted in FAFSA By Kristin Morris

I’m a big fan of the life-blogging service Twitter, and thought I’d share some of the more recent comments about the FAFSA here, along with “director’s commentary” of sorts.

JanetIs: Glad the FAFSA isn’t due until the 30th.

@Janetis: Actually, the sooner you can file it, the better. There’s a limited amount of “free money” available each year, and once it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s allocated on a first come, first served basis.

andyduss: FAFSA can suck it!

dUbiAsIti: uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh, i hate filling out the FAFSA! even when the gov’t has prefilled my answers and it’s easy as pie, i still HATE IT…

donkeypoof: importing music/FAFSA/nebraska driver’slicense?!

unsympathetic: finally filling out my FAFSA

bvaughn: Just finished my FAFSA for next semester… let’s see if the gov’t will give me any money to go to school!

@bvaughn: Don’t just wait on the government. Go find some money yourself – check out our free scholarship search book!

brandanger: wednesday got up cameto class had class til 11:35 work on FAFSA work on homework go out to eat with a friend

twistedmentat: Did my FAFSA. Sorry, Financial Institution, there ain’t no WAY yer squeezin’ eight large outta me.

mmemaledicta: Ok, so here’s what pisses me off about the FAFSA: They ask you for the totals of all accounts. What if rent hasn’t cleared? BS.

@mmemaledicta: They do ask you for the totals of all accounts, but that’s as of the day you file. If you know your rent will clear in a day or two, you can hold off filing the FAFSA until your rent has cleared and your checking account is back to normal.

craftyminx: FAFSA… Knew i forgot something

jeffmckown: Filling out the FAFSA sucks.

hyakurin: Watching CNN. Bored. Worried about FAFSA ******* me on my loans.

@hyakurin: There are a couple of loans, such as the PLUS loan, and private student loans, which do not require the FAFSA at all. If your award letter and student aid report come back with meager results, look into these loans, too.

merrickmonroe: @valor26: maybe not the school (yet), but FAFSA hq should watch out!
