I am a Biology Major(pre med) and also college senior at the James Madison University. I am almost done with my fall semester and am writing this post to seek donations toward my tuition for spring semester so i can graduate in May. As a transfer student from Ghana, i have always relied on financial aid because i was fortunate to become a resident of Virginia and i did not have to pay from pocked (which would have been impossible). Unfortunately, i had bad news 2weeks after fall semester started that a huge part of my financial aid was cancelled because my parents did not qualify for the parents plus loans that i apply for every year. And the reason was the my parents now have bad credit because they have hard time paying their mortgage in this really hard times. I really did not know what to do so i talked to my parents and they decided to help me but it looked like they really did not have much to help.
Because i had not really thought of any unfortunate incident, i already signed a lease around April this year and that was suppose to be the place i would be living for fall. After i head my loan was cancelled, i talked to the apartment and they told me because i had already signed a lease, there is nothing they can really do about it. So i had to take a part time job and still try to cope with my 19 college credits. I did not have any other option and dropping out of college was the last thing on my mind. My parents were barely able to help me with my tuition because there are 4 other ones my parents have to take care of and i must say these times have been hard.
I am just putting this post out here to seek help so i can be able to go back to school for spring semester and hopefully get a degree in May. I am also a Medical school applicant and i started my application late October. The sad thing is although i have really worked hard enough as a student to get to where i am today, i might get admission into some medical schools but if i don't graduate in may, then i really don't get to matriculate into medical school because medical schools say any student admitted should have graduated before matriculation date.
I spent most of summer shadowing a physician at the Rockingham Memorial Hospital and i was fortunate to meet a really good doctor who made me feel become certain i want to be a physician and that's pretty much all i want right now. Am at the point where its either i get the chance to become the good doctor i always wanted to be and your donation will be a good determining factor.
I only have 17 credits to go for spring semester and i will be more than glad if you will donate towards my tuition because it will go a long way to help me go back to school during spring semester and hopefully matriculate into medical school next fall. I AM A SENIOR AND I HAVE ONLY ONE SEMESTER TO GO SO I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP.
