Where can I go to get money for college?

I'm not sure what I want to go to college for. I know I'm not cut out to be a nurse, so don't bother sugguesting that to me. Since I don't know what I want to do, I don't know where I want to go. It would be somewhere in Meadville or Erie, PA.

  • If you call or go to the financial aid offices of these schools they can help you with the FAFSA and give you an idea of any grants you might be able to get.

  • Don't go to college unless there is something you're passionate about studying. College is no place for someone who has no idea what they want to do as a career afterward. It's a waste of time and money if you just go there to drift. Find out what you're passionate about first before going to college.

    fastweb.com is to get scholarships.
    You also might qualify for grants from the government.

  • When you decide for sure if you want to go and what you want to study, make sure you find out about deadlines. There are deadlines for applying, for taking college entrance tests, for signing up for classes, and for financial aid. You'll need to fill out the FAFSA. They will look at the information from your previous year's tax return, then determine what your EFC (expected family contribution) should be. Your college will decide which grants and loans they can offer you.

    I've tried fastweb.com, but have not found it to be worth my time. The financial aid office at my school has given me every lead that has produced a scholarship (the last three times I applied). GL!
