Default Need to make money quickly!

hey guys...

So, my tuition funding for this term was cut, and I need to come up with $2000 by the beginning of next week. Eeep! I'm not really sure if this is even possible. My credit is horrendous, so no kind of loan/credit card chance. I've been running ideas through my head of things to sell, and can't come up with anything.

Does anyone have any ideas???
Current goal: No longer morbidly obese

Because I am worth it!!!!!

Maybe asking friends/family to lend to you?
$2,000 in a week is a lot of money. D:

Have you asked at your school's financial aid office for any ideas? I'd recommend taking the semester off and getting another job to save up. Not fun or ideal, I know, but I can't think of many legal ways to make that kind of money in a week.

Yeah, setting out this semester may be your best bet if you can find a job or can you reduce the number of credits you are taking this semester? I don't know of any legal ways of getting $2000 in a week. But talk to finicial aid, they may have some ideas.
Good luck

have any gold jewelry lying around? it's at 1000 bucks an ounce curantly. Electronics? Games? have a Yard sale? Borrow from the parents. Ask for an extension or payment plan. Car paid for? Title Loans are BAD for interest but might be money quick.

The only time we truly fail is when we give up and stop trying. Everything else is just information to help us find our way to success.

Is there a way to get a promissory note through the school so you pay that $2,000 over the term? If you explain your situation to the school, they will likely have a solution. That may be your only viable option save reducing your course load to match what you can pay for with cash on hand. If there was a good way to make $2,000 in a week that I knew of, I'd be doing it already!
