<p>oh asians count for this? that's rare. i qualify anyhow, yay for being hispanic :D</p>

<p>Do you have to meet certain financial requirements to apply?</p>

<p>^
You must be Pell Grant eligible for GMSP.</p>

<p>The essays look unbelievably daunting.</p>

<p>I know the essay section is extremely important to letting them know who you are, what is the best possible way to translate that in a essay. I'm freaking out</p>
