Trouble is, the lessons she has learned have cost us big time. She didn't turn in any applications in time for scholarships so there are none for this year. Even with her great grades and minority status. She seems to think the money will just appear (as, in fact, our struggles and parent loans are making it do so). I want her to go on to college now, I don't want her side-tracked by waiting.

Supressing the parental urge to kill. . . as we're working on all of it.
