While I enjoyed the campus itself and being able to hang out with my friends, it really sucks being out of state. I felt like I was treated unfairly because of the fact my parents refused to fill out any FAFSA paperwork. I could've gotten an unsubsidized loan or something but financial aid made me get all of the paperwork that took almost six weeks. I had to keep running around and my advisor was never available. I am a physics major and there's only three total.

Once I got all of my paperwork, I still had to keep fighting them about getting aid because they refused to help me. I was also given the number for the school's ombudsmen but I couldn't get a hold her either. Then all of a sudden I get this massive $8000 hold on my account that suspended me from getting classes. Tried getting it fixed and pretty much had to drop out of school to work because a hold won't let you get classes. As much as I liked being there, it put too much stress for an out of state college freshman to deal with.
