It's that time of year! It's been insanely busy for our office this week. People want to register for classes and need to pay their bill, so they're taking out loans.

I don't, but I'm an advisor at a university and refer students there ALL the time. I don't even pretend to know all the federal regulations on that kind of stuff... and I don't want to be the one who gets the university sued when I give bad information. lol

Not me. The financial aid dept was a painful location to visit.

Do you enjoy working there?

LOL YES. Very important to only speak what you know. I wouldn't be the Dean of Financial Aid for any amount of money. As soon as you get used to a regulation, the Dept of Ed changes it.

I can understand that. For the most part, I do enjoy my job. Delivering bad news never gets easier though. I process loans and Pell grants, so my part of financial aid isn't as unpleasant as other.

I am an adjunct at a local university. I'm not sure how much I can commiserate, but I understand the peculiarities of working at a university.

Oh yes. I'm sure we share many of the same pains.
