College Application Essays

I am the first in my family to go to college. We don't have good credit so every place I applied for a loan turned me down including the parent PLUS loan. The parent PLUS loan was my last option, I called them and explained that without this loan I won't be able to attend college and they granted it for me. I'm very grateful to be here!
