OK, I'll be applying for a couple of universities in the fall of 2007. Now what's more confusing then anything else and is driving me nuts is all the financial aid stuff. The websites say my deadline is February 1. February 1 of what, 2007 or 2008? If it's Feb 2007, then that's crazy. Since I have no counselor, I don't have a clue about financial aid. Are loans, grants, scholarships all a part of financial aid? Who do I apply for financial aid? What if I want to apply for scholarship, but want to apply for loans just in case? What if, when I'm repaying the loans, I do not want to give interest? Is there anything interest free? If not, what do I do? HEEELPP!!
