Short version : Academic probation, academic dismissal, appeal forms. My mother has been giving me money for tuition and housing when I've needed it since starting college, and that includes time after I knew about my dismissal. I haven't yet told her (or anyone else but close friends, really) about it. I'd have about two weeks before I was evicted if my appeal is denied. I'm not sure how much my family here would be willing to help me when they find out that I was keeping my problems with classes from everyone. (Renting me a room or helping me find a place until I can get more than a part-time job, anyway. I'd plan on getting two full time jobs for fall semester or so, drop one to take full time classes at a community college around spring semester to keep from having to pay back loans and to help with my readmittance application, if the appeal was denied.)
Mostly not relevant detail - My parents divorced when I was 6. My mom is a dispatcher for Burlington Northern and lives in Kansas City. My dad remarried and is retired, and lives with my stepmother here in Lincoln (along with most of my family... I've never lived anywhere else) who works for the accounting school at the university I attend. My mom recently broke up with her boyfriend and sold their house together, and bought a house alone in Kansas City.( Collapse )
What do you think of my appeal forms essay thing?
Do you think I should tell my mom right away, or after I know the results? (She may or may not be willing to help me find somewhere to live at that point.)
How should I tell her in either case?
Any other advice you can give that I'm not thinking of?
For random addition, I plan to attend all of the Big Red Welcome events this weekend, regardless of the status of my appeal, and have fun with my friends here in case it is the last time I can.
Edit - Yes, I fixed the typos. :)
