Help Amy pay for nursing school!

If you know me, you know how stoked I was to get into OHSU- and how freaked out I was about paying for it. Well, now is the time for maximum freak out. I have NO idea how I am going to pay for this term. Luckily, I've managed (until now) to pay for school with the federal nursing loan and scholarships. I have been awarded some scholarship money this year, but it doesn't kick in until next term... This term, I have a remaining balance of $3389.69 that I need to pay in order to register for classes next term. So here I go, I am resorting to begging you all for help!!!


Just a little background...

I am currently a junior in Oregon Health and Sciences University's nursing program, which was ranked #7 in the nation's top nursing programs by US News in 2011, tied with Yale University and Duke University. Out of more than 400 applicants, only 24 were accepted into the program, with a minimum GPA of 3.8. I have a passion for working with children and teens, and plan to specialize in pediatrics (maybe pediatric oncology or trauma??).

Why not get more loans you ask?
I maxed out my federal loans am no longer eligible to take out additional loans, despite my financial need and a very low Estimated Family Contribution(EFC) number of 0 (zero). On the FAFSA, I qualify as a graduate/professional student, but OHSU registers me federally as an undergraduate... Because I have a previous Bachelor's Degree, I no longer qualify for the federal loans and grants available to undergraduates. 
Taking out a private loan is impossible for me because of my bad credit. I do not have anyone to cosign a loan for me, because my family members also have immense amounts of debt and bad credit. I've been denied on alternative loans from Citibank, US bank, Wells Fargo, etc. I need a significant amount of help to pay for tuition and fees... I am applying for as many scholarships as possible, but in the mean time, I need some serious help.

Your donation will help make it possible for me to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing, and help me continue the road to becoming an AWESOME nurse!!!


Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!! Donate ANYTHING and I owe you whatever services I can provide (babysitting, cleaning, dog-walking, mani/pedi, back rub, etc).
