Hi gang.

I've recently been admitted to UW and it looks like it's at the top of my list right now. I've just gotten my financial aid and I've been offered a work-study program. Now, I've read the online UW handbook for work-study and everything, but I'm either really dense or suffering from lack of sleep, and I'm still confused about it.

If you do a work-study program, do all of your earned wages go to paying for tuition? For example, I've been offered $3,000 through work-study; does that mean that all $3,000 of it will go to tuition? If so, is it in any way possible to hold down another job so I can have money for books, food, etc?

Also, is there any way to contact the Financial Aid Office and attempt to wrangle more money out of them? They've offered us a $13,000 parent loan to cover the difference but my mom's a single parent and a florist, so you can imagine she doesn't exactly bring in the big bucks. I was thinking about having my school counselor call and see if there's any more loans, grants, anything, that I could get in place of the parent loan. Is that even remotely plausible?

Subject:funding and grad school question
Time:9:16 pm.
So I have a question for all you UW students...does anyone work on campus such as the bookstore, cafeteria, etc? If so, what are your benefits? insurance? tution waiver? out of state waiver as well? what is the current min. wage on campus or the somewhat average pay?

April 15th is rolling around and I'm getting really nervous about saying yes and not having a research assistantship lined up yet. I was wonder if I could get an on campus job and still get some benefits as RA's get and be able to afford UW. Btw, I'm out of state. (the person i'm suppose to talk to with about these issues is gone due to personal reasons her email said and won't be back till after the 15th)

Thanks so much!
