  10. ugh!! couldn't keep on reading!!! .... "not fair"? well it's not like it was our fault ( I'm not saying my parents did wrong by bringing me here) but they are making it seem like it's our fault that the economy in CA is getting worse because of us!! we also work hard and many of us take the jobs that they DON'T want! what would it be of this country if we weren't here to work those jobs that they don't in California (at least in the region i live) i see a lot of young people(DREAMers) working out in the fields working under really hot temperatures and for long hours just to get enough money to support their families and pay for school and I see a sign that says "the citrus capital of the world" and all I think is "the citrus capital of the world"? and thanks to who?? ... and to be honest I don't see any "white" people working at these type of jobs!! I know it's a bit out of topic (the article's topic) but it just gets me mad and saddens to see all those prideful people who want compassion from others but aren't willing to be compassionate towards others! and just complaining about us being the ones harming the economy :/ ... sorry I had to let it out

    my sisters sent their app on November 1st and did their bios on Dec 5th and one got approved on Jan. 16 I believe and my other sister got approved a week after that (don't remember the exact day) ... and me .... well nothing yet look at my time line .... wish you the best of luck!!!

    1. erika22


      Do you know if they offer classes in Spanish? Maybe I can get my mom to do some learning while she's at home instead of watching novelas all the time

    2. splif0clock


      erika22, I am not sure if there are any courses in spanish but some have subtitles in spanish. But, the course work would still be in English :\ .

    3. erika22


      Awesome thank you for the info though now I'm thinking of what class to start first!

  22. Hello, From California! \(^_^)/

    i think you have to file the AB 540 form first (don't know if you did already) . You should talk to someone from the financial aid office at your college because apparently the forms are different for every college (that's what the lady from the financial aid office at my college told me) but you should qualify for it.
  23. Hello, From California! \(^_^)/

    Cal grants are a type of financial aid. Financial aid is any kind of support/aid/money that you get to be able to pay for school. I think you meant federal aid. Federal aid is money that you get from the goverment such as FAFSA. Cal grants are a type of aid from the state of California, not from the federal goverment
  24. Hello, From California! \(^_^)/

    No, you do not have to pay them back
