My name is Jay Betts, and I’m a sophomore at Hamline University majoring in Pre-Med Biology. My current GPA is a 3.4, and I plan to attend medical school after graduation.I’m also a part of the Hamline University Men’s Basketball team. I am a first generation college student, and completing my degree is of a great personal importance to me. I’ve met with financial aid specialists and their only solution was to apply for an alternative loan. I have tried everyone close to me, from immediate family, to relatives and friends to have someone co-sign, but they have all been denied approval. Unfortunately, with my family’s financial situation we are unable to come up with the $4,000-5,000 I owe.
