For many students, the financial aid process is an emotional rollercoaster. When you just spent hours applying to colleges or studying for your finals, financial aid doesn’t rank high on your list of desirable weekend plans. We get it. Filling out your FAFSA®, sitting on hold with the financial aid office, texting your parents about their taxes–none of this sparks joy.
But when you finally finish, you get the money, and see your hard work pay off (literally), it all feels worth it. When it’s good, it’s really, really good.
ALL CAPS GOOD...
Tears of joy good...
Sometimes, though, you do put in all the work, and it doesn’t always go your way. What if your college thinks that you have $8,000 sitting in your savings account wondering about its purpose in life? What if the actual number is closer to $80 (or $8)?
What if your financial aid package is crummy?
What if your water polo scholarship doesn’t pan out?
Or maybe the government has some misconceptions about your relationship with your parents or your parents’ relationship with their bank account.
Like why do they ask for your parents’ tax information when you’re the breadwinner?
Do they know something you don’t know?
No matter what your situation, it shouldn’t be like this. Now, it doesn’t have to be. Skip the misery and apply for your financial aid with Mos. We put the FIN back in the financial aid process–as in, we put an end to it.
So do Mos and be done (really done).
