FAFSA (Free application for Federal Student Aid) begins its filing process on January 1st! Here's a quick little hint/tip: The filing pool is open from Jan 1-March 1st BUT, the closer you submit it to when it opens, the better chance you have of receiving more financial aid. Think of it as a "parking spot". If you submit on January 1st, you're parked at the very front of…Continue
Whats up everyone? Hope everyone is having a great time being off of school and having a great holiday season! I am pretty stoked on how much snow is falling in Tahoe, but I have been too sick to even ride the fresh powder! :(

This week is finals week at my school and the deadlines are closing in. On top of school projects, homework, and studying for finals I am still filling out my Common Application for the Private Universities as well as searching for scholarships.
