I am wanting to go back to school. I will have to try for financial aid. I know it is based on your income, but "can" it pay for it all. Is there still some you have to pick up in the end. Any info is greatly appreciated.

It depends on what kind of aid you get. If it's something like a Pell Grant or scholarship (and at least here in VA we have something that I think is COMMA but I can't remember what it stands for), then you don't have to pay anything back and a lot of the time it will cover everything, so long as your income in low enough. Go here and fill out your FAFSA now if you want to start in the spring. If you intend to start in the fall or summer, then wait until you get your tax return next year. At the end of the FAFSA it should give you an estimated amount that YOU will have to contribute. Sometimes you do have to pay for some things, sometimes you don't.
