I could understand some of your responses if I was knocking on your door asking for 20 bucks but im not! All im asking is that you click a "like" button stating that you like my essay that I submitted for a scholarship, not your appoval for me to get welfare. lol. I sorry if Im trying to better myself and get a higher education and im not able to rely on my parents to fund it. And im even more sorry that I posted this to look like a "begger" or that Im "lobbying". Hope more of you can find it in you to help me out, thanks
Do like me, sign your life away to the air force if your want to "better yourself". I worked and paid for my two year degree. Working two jobs while going to school. Go be shocked somewhere else.

Im not trying to sound offensive but it is intresting that this is the only place I have received negative feedback. Im sure you guys arent the only ones to think this way but as the saying goes "if you dont have nothing nice to say then STFU!".

More curious as to why you will take 3,5,10 minutes to troll diffrent posts that are meaningless but yet you wont take 10 seconds to actually help someone, and I dont want to sound desperate but I just find it more than interesting as to why.

What the hell ever happened to scholarships based on academic, athletic, and good citizen achievements?

It seems like you have to write a paper for every scholarship around these days, but papers are so easy to cheat on. Oh well, if people feel like giving their money away, more power to them I guess.

Some of you guys sure are bitter. The guy wrote an essay for a scholarship to better his life and his future. More people need to be concerned with improving their future and going to college so there aren't so many ******* people around who can't think outside the box.

Its not your money so quit ragging on the guy. I had to work 40 hours a week and go to school full time when I was in college just like most of you had to. But i'm not bitter about it and think that just because I had to do it, others have to too.

He isn't asking for money from mommy and daddy. He is looking to make his own way. Help the guy out a bit...
