The financial aid office is a nightmare. As a student responsible for my own finances, I was relying on scholarships to pay for my education. I had bigger scholarships at better schools but I held out for APSU. After pushing back the date I would hear something 5 times, they told me I need to accept my loan offers. Since they made me accept loans before hearing back on my scholarships, I don't get scholarships, and have loans for the full cost of attendance. Thanks, guys.
