Friday Rant!

Did you hear the good news about the 2009-2010 academic year? In addition to the increase in Pell Grant money (which is great for students), Federal Stafford loan funds have been increased by $2,000! Terrific, let’s poor more student loan debt on the children of tomorrow.

Do you know what happens when the federal reserve puts more money into circulation? Inflation spikes which devalues the dollar; although that also has a positive subsequent effect on our nations trade deficit. Still, the point I’m making is that more isn’t always better. Giving students more money doesn’t get to the root of the problem, which is that tuition is so overpriced it’s ridiculous!

I really feel for the students of today who are getting out of school with mini-mortgage payments and no job prospects. The trail of tears is long. You may want to inquire about free debt consultation if you are struggling with your monthly bills like so many Americans these days. For those students who are still in school there is some hope in the form of scholarships.

At ScholarshipPoints.com, our sister site, we know how tough it is on today’s students, which is why we are committed to helping as many as we can with $100,000 in free scholarship money. Take a look at all the year-to-date winners.

Taking that one extra step may save you thousands of dollars. So I guess more money is a good thing after all, provided it’s in the form of a scholarship.

Scholarships

Does money really make the world go around, because I was under the belief it circled on its rotational axis at a 23.5 degree angle from vertical at 1000 miles per hour with no monetary influence, but that’s just me. Others have theorized that money actually makes the world go down like the Dow on black Tuesday. So which is it? Does it make the world go down or around? I guess it all depends on your vantage point and wallet size. The bigger your wallet, the greater your chance of motion sickness.

My goal is simple; find a way to beef up that wallet of yours devoid of any dizzy spells. The number one way to turn your paper thin wallet into a certified Jenny Craig candidate is to take someone else’s money! Scholarships provide the perfect gateway to which I speak.

You would be astounded at the number of scholarships you actually qualify for, and you don’t need to be Deans list to qualify either. I can not possibly stress enough that you need to take the time to look. I’ve even created a top 5 list to help streamline your search.

I get calls from desperate college graduates all the time who inform me they are in over their head with their student loan payments. And as sure as the sun rises in the east I’ll be fielding calls once again this May from despairing students who just graduated looking for advice, but at that point the damage is already done. The point of this blog is to put you in front of the 8-ball instead of behind it

Being proactive about the cost of your college education opposed to reactive can save you thousands of dollars and a whole lot of stress in the long run. And I promise it won’t be long before you’re spinning around the sun with your Ray-Ban sunglasses and calling Jenny Craig to let her know that big is beautiful. Student loan debt is the only thing you need to lose.

Student Loan Network Announcing Ten Year Anniversary Scholarship of $10,000

Click to enter our 10K scholarship

Quincy, MA — The Student Loan Network, an Edvisors Company, is marking its 10th anniversary by sponsoring the Ten-Year $10K Scholarship – a special $10,000 scholarship to be awarded in the first quarter of 2008. “We are celebrating 10 years by giving back to our students. It is becoming increasingly difficult to pay for the rising cost of a college education. Our goal for the last 10 years has been to help students find the right solutions – from scholarships and grants to federal and private loans – for them,” said Joe Cronin, President of the Student Loan Network. “What student couldn’t use a $10,000 scholarship?”

Any current full-time college or graduate student – or student who will be enrolled full time by the end of 2008, such as high school seniors – is eligible for this scholarship. By registering at here, students will receive one entry. Each time they refer a friend who registers, they will receive another entry.

“The funds will be sent directly to the winning student’s school,” explained Cronin, “so our only requirement is that the student be enrolled, or will be enrolled, this year. It’s important that these funds are used for tuition and other essential education expenses, and sending money directly to the school ensures that.”

Visit www.studentloannetwork.com/10k to learn more about the Ten-Year $10K Scholarship. Students do not need to be customers of the Student Loan Network to be eligible. No purchase is necessary.
