I'm currently putting myself through school at Rutgers University, while working 80 hours a week, as well as financially supporting myself. It's been very difficult working so much in the last year and a half, while being so young. I transferred from a community college after my associates degree and the difference in expenses really hit me square in the face. I was not given any financial aid based on my parents assets, but am not financially dependent whatsoever. I've already taken one semester off to save for a semester. I was having minor hardships paying for the fall and spring semester. However, now I need to take a lab/ class combination and can only find the accomodating times for my work schedule during the summer session. I am going to be very tight on cash financially considering it's an extra expense excluded from the normal Fall and Spring semester. Any help is really going to make it possible for me to finish my undergrad without sacrificing my current income and security.
