Financial Aid and Food Stamps

Postby frankjones » Wed Jan 27, 2010 3:15 pm

I'm on food stamps. Am I likely to get need-based financial aid (at a T-14)? Or is need-based aid pretty much a total farce used to disguised merit-based aid?

The latter except for HYS. They know that anyone can borrow $200k in loans regardless of need.

Huh? So except for HYS need-based is a farce? or did you mean the former, and OP is likely to get need-based aid at the T14 minus T3.
