in under 2 weeks i start a new semester at college (my
second, actually) and i need office xp pro for 2 of my
classes... my problem? i am on disability and with only a
pell grant i barely have enough to buy books... i might be
doing the work study (am waiting on letter from school)
but still i need to come up with at least $200 (office xp
pro) or $300 (office xp pro w/frontpage - kinda what i
REALLY need cause i'm going into web/multimedia) to get
the software.... it's academic pricing
[academicsuperstore.com]... i literally have no one to
borrow the money from.... my dad's been laid off for
almost a year now after 32 years at the same place and my
mom has been out of work since being hit by a car while
walking almost 2+ years ago..... [yes, when it rains, it
pours].. and my friends? have not seen them since i first
got hospitalized for my disability in 1997... any help or
suggestions would be appreciated - please e-mail them as i
use netzero and can only access online from home
occasionally due to living situation [not living with
parents]. THANK YOU & GOD BLESS!!

It's been a while since I was in college, but I seem to remember them having
a computer lab, with software installed, that you could go to and use. Ours
was even open 24 hours.

If you are getting financial aid, perhaps the cost could
be considered like textbooks...the financial aid office
should be able to help you out.

depending on the college, some actually have site
liscenses open to students, where for $5 you can go and
buy a CD set with the college's open liscense key.
Perhaps you could look into this?
