Is there anyone out there that can fill me in on this financial aid application process? I'm gonna ask for the full amount of Stafford Loan, but what about the Perkins one? Are we automatically considered or is that a separate application? I know a lot of this information is probably on the website, but their financial aid webpage is too much to handle right now. I need at least another 6,000 dollars after the Stafford Loan. Anyway, any help would be great.
Do you know which lender you will be using? What are the perks for using their preferred lender (Sallie Mae)?
