Hello, My name is Rachael Gethers. Sadly, as of yesterday, my mother has informed me that my attendance at FAMU will no longer happen due to financial reasoning. I'm not sure where I stand on school for next semester or how I'm supposed to feel about the situation. From a realistic point of view, I understand we don't have the resoucres to pay for it out of pocket and I understand the importance of not being in debt coming out of college. From a personal point of view,for lack of bettter word, I can't help but to feel disappointed and hurt. The real question is, where will I be attending school next semester with it only being a month away? Most of the schools I were accepted to were out of state or wanted me to start in the summer. At this point, I just need advice.
If you can't obtain a loan before school starts, consider either going to a Community College this fall while you obtain funding and then transfer to FAMU beginning in the Spring semester. If that's still not an option, sit out a year and work while you find funding to begin in Fall 2011. Don't let this stop you from attending college, if it's what you truly want.
