Haven't made any real progress in the bureaucracy at ASU.  My attempts at communicating have been ignored.  Fortunately they have a Walk-in Wednesdays that allows me to just go into the advisor's office and chat.  If I haven't made headway by then, I'm just going to get all dolled up and head in.  I'll handle the finaid and the MMR hold then.  

What really worries me currently is the new Arizona House Bill that will require students to contribute at least $2,000 toward their education each semester.  The Bill bars students from using loans, neither federal nor private (!) to cover this gap, and bars scholarships and grants from covering it.  The Arizona Board of Regents, which runs ASU and AU and NAU, have pleaded with the state government to not do it, because it won't fix the problems and the writers (Tea Partiers all) have lied through their teeth to fudge the numbers to make the situation look worse than it is in the first place.  I'm very worried that I'm going to be responsible for paying two grand on top of my living expenses that I simply don't have - it would essentially force me to drop out for good this time.
