“It’s only money”!?!

March 10th, 2011

This will teach me.

I just realized that for two out of his four years of college, there was a grant my son qualifies for that he didn’t get simply because we weren’t paying attention. I’m kicking myself for not reading the financial aid website more carefully.

There is a lot of help out there, and for families like us who are counting the dollars and trying to minimize the student loans our sons and daughters have to take out, it’s worth it to not leave any stone unturned.

The nice thing is, my kid isn’t blaming me.  I guess he realizes he could have read the webpage too…

Lesson learned.
