Has anyone who has applied for financial aid ever used a financial aid counselor or consultant to help prepare, research, etc. for funding. I am not rich person who is too lazy to do my own research but I do work full time, go to school, and I really, REALLY need the money to help with the school I want to and have been accepted to go to this coming fall. So if you have used or heard of such people or organizations could you give your thoughts on the matter or recommendations? Thanks ahead of time.
