    This goes out to all the people who went to the University of Memphis, goes there, or knows about. Well, I'm 16 year going to be 17 in august. I love what University of Memphis offers but the problem is that when I graduate from high school in May 2009. My dad says I can't go because of money. For all those who are out of state that are going there now. Isn't what I heard that it's a cake walk to get into school. I'm not going to school there too party. I'm there to get me a degree so that I don't have to be some guy for 50 years working at Mcdonald's or BurgerKing because that would be sad. I make A's and B's. I'm going to retake my SAT. I made a 1200 on my first SAT which was bad, but when I checked for what they required I already past there test requirements. I'm good in math and science. I just need money. Financial aid to be specific. I really need some help. You guys are probably asking where do you live. I live in Beaumont, Texas. University of Memphis is only but 7 hours from there. By the way, if any person who goes there can answer this question. Does anyone of you play a sport and in engineering or medical or law. I like soccer alot. I was hoping to play soccer. I wondering if they take newbies. Also, are there any good little jobs: for example like restaurants. I really need help. If that fails then I need help getting into Baylor University.

    I think you need to be realistic. The cost of attendance for out of state students last year was $28,441. That's a hefty price tag for a mediocre OOS public school. Is it worth it?

    http://www.enrollment.memphis.edu/FI...ninfo.html#coa

    On average, only 81% financial need was met for students who qualified for financial aid. The average FA package was $8700. OOS students undoubtedly receive a bit more aid than this, but it's still a lot to pay.

    Why not consider some of the public schools in Texas? Baylor would be considerably cheaper with a better reputation.

    Apply to some open minded universities with good financial aid programs. Good luck.
