To Do List

I should have gone to bed a while ago, but instead, I filed my FAFSA! Just like that, all in one go. It's such a weight off my shoulders. Now the ball is in someone else's court. It feels good!

Although, I suppose I'm supposed to apply for a Grad PLUS loan, now. Note to self: look into that.

To Do List for Going to Grad School in London:
  1. √Apply to grad school.
  2. √Get accepted into grad school.
  3. √File FAFSA begging for moolah.
  4. Get Student Aid Report back from U.S. Gov’t.
  5. Send SAR to school of my dreams.

It gets a little fuzzy from here:

  1. Look into Grad PLUS loan.
  2. Get sponsored for all loans by some third party company.
  3. Prove to school of my dreams that I’m financially covered.
  4. Receive formal letter of admission from school of my dreams.
  5. Apply online for student visa from British consulate.
  6. Get visa and head off to Ol’ Blightey! Woohooooo!
  7. Procure student housing? (Perhaps this should be step 11, if possible.)
I'm on my way!


  1. Does FAFSA cover international school too? Awesome!

  2. It covers some of them, including mine.
