Applying for financial aid in college may often seem like a complicated process, a flurry of paper involving forms, budgets and many steps that must be completed before moving on to the next one.One group of students that may cause extra concern for some universities when deciding who gets financial aid is students with divorced parents.
Mike Scott, the director of scholarships and student financial aid at TCU, said the university has had problems in the past when dealing with divorced families.
I had a teacher in junior high go off on a spiel one day about how our high school and college years would fly by."Sure," I thought as I watched him, "you also eat chalk."

The screams of more than 300 fans filled the University Recreation Center's Special Events Gym on Tuesday night as the TCU volleyball team defeated local rival North Texas in three games.Sophomore outside hitter Talaya Whitfield led the charge for the Horned Frogs with 16 kills and junior middle blocker Anna Vaughn added four blocks to lead the team a 30-25 win in each game.
Sophomore middle blocker LeMeita Smith also added 12 kills for the Frogs.
Fans on Sunday filled the bleachers, lined the fences and spilled out onto the grass of TCU's Garvey-Rosenthal Stadium to watch the soccer team take on No. 6-ranked Texas A&M.The turnout of 2,200 set a new attendance record.
Despite the fan support and strong play toward the end of the first half, TCU fell to the Aggies 4-0.
Head coach Dan Abdalla said the team dropped their effort at times, giving A&M too many chances.
