I'm pretty clueless about how to get scholarships I have tried

    I'm pretty clueless about how to get scholarships... I have tried searching online but all I have found are school-specific ones.

    I got accepted into a good university, and just got my financial aid award... and I'm still about $9000 dollars short! So I really need to get some scholarships or I'm pretty much gonna be screwed. How have any of you gone about getting them in the past?

    Well, I'm taking out a lot of loans. That's how I pay for college!

    That, and my parents.

    The idea of being tens of thousands of dollars in debt when i still have grad school ahead of me is scary though. i don't see how i can ever afford that. And I'm getting no assistance from my parents or anyone.

    You should contact the financial aid department at the university you plan to attend ASAP. They're probably your best source of information.
