What's the best way to pay for an MBA at Texas A&M University ? Need Financial Aid Help ?
Graduate students can borrow a maximum of $20,500 per year in federal student loans. I would definitely take advantage of a federal loan because the interest can be deferred while you're in school, and if you qualify for subsidized loans, the interest is paid by the gov't during your school term. Definitely talk to the financial office about other graduate school financing. Also, they may offer special grants and/or scholarships to grad students. Also, are you working? If so, your HR department may offer tuition reimbursement ... esp. for an Executive MBA. Good luck!
What do I have to do to get my drivers license when I'm over 18 years old in TEXAS?
Hello Lise Breivik
Here's a step-by-step guide on getting your Texas Driver's License: http://driving-tests.org/texas/how-to-pass-texas-dmv-test/
I also suggest you study the official Texas Driver's Handbook which is available online from here: http://driving-tests.org/texas/texas-drivers-handbook-online/ (please note that it may take a few minutes to load - depending on the speed of your Internet connection).
I hope this helps.
How do I reduce my property tax in texas when I'm not a resident?
You can't. TX has a homestead exemption that reduces your assessed value for tax purposes by $5,000. However you must live in the property to qualify for it.
Unless your property is over-valued compared to similar properties in the district, you are stuck with the property tax bills as they are. If you feel that it is over-valued you can appeal the valuation to the tax appraisal district. TX has a strict schedule that you must follow. File one day late and it will be automatically denied. The appraisal district can give you the details for filing the appeal.
I lived in TX for many years. Finally had to leave and sell off my rental properties due to the insane property taxes there. TX likes to brag about not having an income tax but my combined income and property taxes in MO are 30% less than my property taxes alone in TX were.
