I cannot f*cking believe this.

You see, I'm enrolled this coming school year in college, at Ball state in Muncie, IN. I'm in my 2nd year of college, first year I stayed home and commuted to IUPUI. I earned a 3.8 gpa there both semesters, so as you can tell i do take my academics seriously.

Well anyways, a few days ago, I was caught by my parents smoking marijuana. They're the uber-christian conservative type so of course they flipped out. But, I had no idea they'd do this. They now refuse to cosign my student loan so I cant go to ball state this semester (All the aid I have is $5500 in stafford federal loans, but thats not enough). THey told me i have to go to iupui again this semester, which is bad enough because it doesnt even have my major (telecommunications, I just took care of core classes/electives last yr). Even worse, I explained to them that its more or less too late to enroll in most classes at IUPUI now because its so close to the beginning of the school year. So they pretty much tell me, "too bad". Not to mention I already signed the lease for an apartment in Muncie (they ignore this even tho I told them). They just havent signed the financial guarantor sheet (pretty much cosign). So I'm stuck with no school for now. Its horsesh*t when you handicap your sons future because he does something you dont agree to.

Anyone here know where I can go to find student loans with no cosigner needed?

If my parents did that I would never tell my kids about them. I hate it when parents over-react over something so small. Though drugs are bad...

Hell, I would've been cool with them grounding me like not letting me go out for the rest of my time until I go off to school (even tho what I did was totally harmless), but this is just too drastic.

i feel what your saying man, i live in indianapolis and i know how ball st is really know for their telecommunications. that is completely absurd though to take away ur future like that, i thought my parents were bad but damn that sucks big time. the only thing i can think of is maybe going to ivy tech for a year or something because then you can commute their and my buddy's neighbor just went today to schedule for classes. thats really the only thing i can think of, but anyways im sorry for what your parents did to you, i would be super pissed.
#14
you're parents are ****ing stupid, they are going to **** up you future just because of some weed? selfish ****s (no offense, but i cant imagine any parents doing that to their kids so i'm just infuriated)

they could be bluffing ofc

Better yet, become a satanist and hold sacrificial rituals at your p[parents home when they're out.


That will show em'

Better idea: do it while they're home. When they confront you, tell them, "Well, if you hadn't stopped me from smoking weed, I would've been too high to even think about this. This is your fault, you're terrible parents."
#16
Sounds like your parents need to start smoking weed.

as long as your permanent residence is under their roof, you are still in an undergraduate program, and you have no substantial income, at least not enough to support yourself without their aid, I believe they must cosign any loan that will be used for said undergraduate program.

That sucks though. In no way is that fair. If they really think compromising your future just so you learn your lesson about drugs or, even worse, disobeying them, is fitting, then I do not see how they can live with themselves.

well even though they may have overreacted, you still knew that there would be consequences for what you do. but even though you knew that, you still did it. thats just asking for trouble man.

drugs are bad, but your parents are destroying your future. if they continue to refuse, get a job. any job. whatever happens to you is there fault.
#24
Thats unbelievable...

Its mj not cocaine...not worth this kind of punishment holy crap.


Unfortunately the only way to get a student loan with no consigner needed is if you apply for financial assistance because you have no parents. Im sorry man, this is unbelievable...

Dude that sounds like something my parents would do. Parents can be harsh, tho I don't smoke pot. Im starting my freshman year at college this year, and there have been those same threats for lesser things that I've done. Threaten them by telling them you won't ever speak to them again or something... and act like you're serious. Maybe that'll change their minds. Just a thought...

that doesnt work on them, as I've already more or less shut them out since they've done this. They don't care as long as they get what they want in the end (control).

Marijuana is not a drug.


1)

a) A substance used in the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of a disease or as a component of a medication.
b) Such a substance as recognized or defined by the U.S. Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

2)A chemical substance, such as a narcotic or hallucinogen, that affects the central nervous system, causing changes in behavior and often addiction.

Agreed. Plus it's not like the TS was doing heroin or anything. Jeez...

Also, TS, you don't have any family that can talk to your parents? Or maybe you can talk to your minister/priest and have him talk to your parents about forgiveness?

I know that second one sounds stupid, but trust me, it really could work.
#34
Remind your parents your ENTIRE life depends on you going to college, who you marry, your kids, your income, your studies, EVERYTHING. Maybe that will sway them. Also mention that you were just curious and that you were trying it. "Say" you're "never going to do it again."
#35
Just use all the facts about weed to convince them that it's not even bad, and if used every once in a while, can actually be good for you.

They probably just don't know any of the facts about weed.

lols, my other family/minister would probably make things worse. My whole family is filled with the conservative christians who will have a meltdown if I say "ass" in front of them. Seriously, its rediculous. My dad's (I dont go to church) minister is a hypocritical whackjob (in that church, the people cant even go to the movies, women cant wear pants, etc.).

BTW I wasnt even smoking in my house, it was while i was out hanging w/ friends.

I tell my parents how harmless weed is, they're blinded by society's image of it. They think for some reason its addictive even tho I kno from experience it has no addiction factor whatsoever
