I've found financial aid counselors at most colleges tremendously helpful in uncovering hidden sources of grants, loans, and funding and consider adding some part-time employment/work study to your schedule. One important detail, however; always represent yourself with excellence especially when you're communicating on social media or a site like this. Using the incorrect "excepted" in your question rather than the correct form of "accepted" creates a negative first impression for you and should be avoided at all costs. SPELLING MATTERS!!!!!
