    FAFSA before admittance to UNIBE

    Advertisements



    Hello

    Is it true that UNIBE will reject an applicant for completing the FAFSA before being granted admission. I have completed the FAFSA and was also sent a supplemental document to complete from UNIBE although I have not been accepted nor rejected. If they reject applications due to completion of FAFSA before admission into the program, why would they send the supplemental documentation for me to complete?

    Any insight is much appreciated.

    I have heard this over and over. NO, one is not rejected by application to Stafford Loans prior to admission. They go hand in hand. You can not attend school without money and you can not get money without attending school.
    The application is processed but you do not receive the money until you are actually in school and it is disbursed by the financial aid officer after the school receives their portion (tuition). If you are rejected it is because of something other than applying for the student loan prior to actual admission. Does make a good excuse though instead of personal inadequacies.

    I applied at UNIBE for Jan 09 semester by June itself which is way ahead of time and then sent my FAFSA application also same time when I sent my application... I've been in the health care for 8+yrs as a critical care RN, Nurse educator and Nurse Manager and written an honest, well written (according to some very gud doctors who read it) personal essay, furnished some very gud recommendation letters from renowned doctors with whom I work including their credentials as an attachment, I have 3.97 GPA, I also have mentioned about the community services I did like heart walks, fund raising programs for cancer kids, breast cancer awareness amongst women, stroke survival reunions etc, wrote numerous articles on various nursing related topics including on the WHO theme in the past and my articles were even published in some of the national nursing journals, was a college topper in my nursing school and above all was willing to put my 100% effort to study hard and determined to get a medical degree.... and yet I got rejected by UNIBE.... I tried NUMEROUS times to contact admissions and also the medical school and tried to speak to the Dean directly and also emailed every possible person but, everything went in vain..... I even mentioned in my emails and phone calls that I would like to find out my "inadequacies" for my rejection and if there was anything I could fix it and then apply for next semester in May...To a point, I even said that I'm willing to pay the school fees for an entire year if they thought I might not pay fees as I applied for FAFSA ahead... Till date I didn't know the reason for my rejection....I never even got any kind of official letter stating I got rejected except for an email... All they told me was "We dont have a policy to notify the applicant the reason for their rejection"

    But now, I got accepted at a different school and YES I'm gonna start for Jan 09 semester itself.... But again, I'm not here to spit bitterness about UNIBE here in these forums but would definitely like to know my "personal inadequacies" for my rejection if anyone can help me on this and thus help me be a better person if not get admission at UNIBE. If my inadequacies are genuine, I would definitely like to know and overcome those and mebe not face such rejections in future...I guess it's basic courtesy and an act of professionalism to inform the applicant the reason for their rejection... And again, I've great respect for UNIBE and heard it's a gud med school and that's why I applied and even have my user ID with UNIBE in it hoping that I would go there... But, looks like this school has different protocols which I personally never heard of.... IMHO, I felt I had all the necessary credits and met all the school's criteria to get admission but looks like I have some "personal inadequacies"... Which I guess is ok as no one is perfect but the only thing what bothers is that this school should notify the applicant the reason for their rejection and whether or not they are eligible to re-apply.. I guess it's the right of the applicant to know that and also I feel it's unfair and sad that UNIBE doesnt value the efforts an applicant puts forth in gathering all the necessary documents, sending everything to them the way they want etc n stuff only to know in the end that one gets rejected without knowing the reason...

    I've also received my loan documents, but it's just so complicated to figure out! There are like NO directions, anywhere!
