Not as much as your GPA does!

GPA gets you noticed. Truly learning and trying to GET AN EDUCATION rather than just grades, will make you much more successful than your peers starting out.

I actually never calculated mine, but let us know your results. Then we can discuss if it's worth it to take the fine or to buy insurance.

On a side note, I think is is fundamentally wrong to FORCE healthy info like yourself to buy health insurance.

On the flip side, everyone should he responsible for their debt. Longgg debate

You won't see insurance come down until mandatory insurance goes into effect in 2017. After that, new companies will pop up, ppl free to switch plans all the time. That's how costs are supposed to go down

premiums didn't go down yet let's invent a new system

How can I get credit without any income?

How risky is it to fraudulently claim non-existent income in a credit application?

I don't need much. Just enough to pay the upfront costs of moving to a new city (deposit, first month of rent) when I am offered a job there.

Did you ever work an accounting job between getting your bach and mba? During mba?
Yes and yes. Big piece of advice: find a company that will PAY for you to get a masters, which is what I did.

For someone pursuing the same general path anything you wish you'd done or avoided?
Look for the opportunity in a job, don't look for the highest pay. Over time, the latter will cost you.

What kind of scholarship were you on?
Full ride, scored 35 on ACT

How much of your income is from investments/portfolio management, how much from work?

About 33% from investment and the other from my job

Our situation is the same. The "affordable" care act has decimated the healthcare industry.

We had our first operating loss last year.

On the other hand, if healthcare systems are able to adjust to the new bundled payment initiatives, they could become more profitable.

I need an internship to graduate but only have one semester left. My advisor said I should contact the local hospital and ask if they could use an unpaid intern for accounting or fundraising or something. My major is Innovation & Entrepreneurship so I know a little about many business subjects but a lot about none of them.

You think a hospital would be down for something like that? I'm going back to school soon and looking into contacting that hospital. Who exactly should I contact for such a thing? Should I ask specifically about accounting or fundraising or something else? I don't want anything too heavy or serious. Something stress free like data entry would be nice since I'll already be stressed enough from my huge workload in school. Any advice?

I absolutely do. We have multiple unpaid interns who work just a day or two a week, unpaid.

I would contact HR and see if you can get them to give you a name of someone in finance to talk to.

hurr i give good advice cuz i make money

Get out of here. You're likely where you are because of nepotism and where you started.

You sound like a complete tool with a superiority complex which is common with hospital workers.

How do you feel that your industry has completely fucked the health and well being of good Americans for decades? Being in the finance side of things i'm sure you know exactly what i mean. And before you blame the insurance companies (which is always the 1st defense of anyone in your position), your industry is equally responsible.

TalkBomber

@kizzmybutt
Why does your dad have to file taxes? To get a Parent loan? If you can prove that you can't get a parent loan (apply and get rejected) they will increase your stafford loan a little bit. Call your schools financial aid office and talk to them about it. They usually try to help, I mean, your tuition pays their salary. It is a business, they will try to work with you to finance you.

@RavySnake
Damn that's right, they need to verify your parents income. Are your parents divorced? If so maybe you re-do your fafsa with your mothers info instead of your fathers? I only filled out my dads income, and they didn't even ask about my mom (but they are divorced).

Yea, but if you're broke you can apply for forbearance, which sucks because you'll be building interest, but it's what I did while I took a year off school to figure some things out. You might even qualify for unemployment deferment (no interest) if you show them you're applying for jobs but not being hired.
