Hi, and thanks for the reply.

BTW - I recommend she get a part time job. There was a study not too long ago that showed a part time job actually helped students do better. (IIRC theory was it helped with their time management skills)

I agree with you completely, and so does my grand daughter. But if her meager earnings are going to reduce the amount of aid she might be eligible for, it might not be worth it (except for the experience, of course).

She is meeting with the aid counselors at the U soon, and I will post what she finds out about the aid/work question.

Thanks again, The Boston Globe link was very helpful.
