Candy bars used to be 44 cent at Walmart and 51 cent at Kroger.
I remembers this.

they're need based, if you're taking out a loan with more money than you need.. 

why should more money be awarded to that student? its wasteful. 
 
you do realize that while quasi need based, these loans HAVE to be paid back with interest?  and i don't even think they can be discharged with a bankruptcy...so the bank WILL most likely GET their money and then some.

And can sodas used to be around 35 to 55 cent. You could go to the store with a dollar in my day & rack up. The only places you can get cheap snacks are in the hood.

Lol. Refunds aren't a luxury.
Most of the time its from a loan that you have to pay back.
Flow....


i don't care about loans though lol. 
if you're taking loans to go to school, and want to spend 5,000 bucks on a entertainment system ... gon head. most likely you're gonna avoid paying that sh*t back for the rest of your life. 


Then this is really a non discussion.
The only folks gettin' refunds from pell grants are nigguhs in CC.


<span style="line-height: 1.4;">if you qualify for pell grants and loans... </span>
they will combine, isn't that how it works?

if your tuition is 10k, your pell grant is 2k and your loan is 12k or something...
the gov't should have just not given you the pell grant. since its money that is wasted. 

it should be applied only after all other awards/loans are received. 
You do know the cost of living is added in to college cost right? Even when you take out private loans the cost of living is calculated within the private loans and a refund is issued to cover that cost. That 2k would be to cover books which can cost up to over a thousand, and travel to school room and board etc. I don't see that as waste.

totally. 

but because of that, you shouldn't take more than you need in an attempt to try to create a certain lifestyle. i've never taken out a loan, but im sure you can choose to only accept the amount you need and only a little more. 

you will have that loan whether or not the gov't decides to give you the pell grant. the grant is trying to ease any loans that you will take. and yet students still take money that is twice the amount of their tuition.
