School Financial Aid
I'm thinking of going back to school, both because I'm bored at my current profession and I'm not making enough to make ends meet. Well, other reasons too, of course... ;) Anyway, since I'm living alone and all that, I'm sure the financial aid office will at least look at me twice (never the case before), but I know that my credit rating is crap right now. Things have been horrible, financially, for over 18 months, I'm behind on /all/ my payments, my credit cards keep threatening to write me off as bad debt, my student loans are past due, my car got reposessed... So, my question is, how much does that weigh in? My friends think that the financial aid office won't look at my credit score, which could well be true, but what about the bank financing the loans? I'd bet that they do... Any ideas?
