Good evening Sally!
As of today, I am now considered an in-state student! In addition to that, MSU has put me in their Spartan Advantage program, which pays for my tuition, room, and meal plan! So this semester and all of next year, MSU will be paying for me to go here. They also paid most of my loans from last semester (I took out over 8,000 in loans, now I only owe 1,300.) I am so blessed to have gotten so much from the, and I am beyond grateful! I want to thank you again for all your help with it! Again, thank you for everything Sally! Justice - Class of 2018
I can personally say that the amount of help I got from Vandana and Sally during college application season was invaluable, and I couldn't have done it without them. As a first-generation college student, I had no idea what to even look for in colleges, let alone determine which would be my best fit. After acceptance letters came in, I was able to sit down with them, narrow down my choices, figure out how I was going to pay for school, apply for scholarships, and prepare for the next step in my life.
I learned so many lessons along the way

Everyone has been so helpful I am so grateful for you all. I don’t know how I would do any of this without you.
