Applying for Scholarships

Well, they say that old habits die hard, and I seem to be living proof of that. Last year I waited until THE last minute to apply for college and even scholarships. In fact, I don’t think I applied to CSS until the middle of April. Word of advice: DO NOT be like me. Seriously. Applications are so stressful and so annoying, but they are absolutely necessary. Applying for any scholarship that you can is fundamental, too. I need to start searching and applying for scholarships, which is something I should have done months ago! No matter which way you put it, college is expensive. Scholastica is especially expensive and sometimes I have no idea how I’m ever going to be able to afford to come here for the next years to come. I love this school, though, so I know I will have to make it work. The only way I can do that, is by applying for scholarships. That is FREE money so why wouldn’t you try to get some?! CSS especially has a lot of great scholarships especially for first year students and I would take advantage of any one you can. For me, after all was said and done, it cost less to go to CSS than any other public school I was interested in. I hope the same goes for next year. I am trying to decide how I can cut costs and save money here and there. But that won’t be enough, so apply for scholarships and get ahead of the game. It relieves a ton of stress and this dark cloud that is hanging over your head. Seriously.
