I sent his supervisor an e-mail over the weekend which I also included him on the e-mail in the cc field explaining that due to his inexperience and being green behind the ears at this he has failed to provide for my basic needs. I expressed my understanding of his being new and not being as experienced as my two previous counselors, but nonetheless he wil not listen and thinks he knows it all. I explained that I am going into this semester with no textbook money which in the past the 2 counselors provided the funds knowing that it would not take it all, but that it would be used for something dealing with school and more than likely prevent the department from having to pay out even more money for other areas. I went on to explain that I understand my Hope scholarship was based on merit and therefore according to their website on policy it has to be used before any agency money is used. I went on to explain that since I am not being provided textbook money a basic need for going to school I am requesting that maintenance fees be included (I also found this on the website under policy). Maintenance fees include things such as funds for shelter, clothing, and food. I have never been provided these funds in the past because the excess money from textbooks has covered it. We will see if I receive a response today because I did not receive a response yesterday so I will be collecting the regional supervisor's information today in the off chance I do not hear back from this supervisor. Once this one doesn't answer then I will go to state representatives and cc everyone I attempted to talk to prior to going this route.

I chose law school. Keep in mind I was given a choice. Now, I am having to defend my choice with this knuckle brained VR person. Asked me how my current path relates to law school. Well *scratching my head* look around buddy psychology is in everything we do, not to mention the fact that I chose law school first thing when I was asked back in 2009 and I was forced to make a smaller goal. I wrote my response very carefully. Now, I guess we will see come the first of the week.

I am going for the top and told my VR counselor that I am sticking with my original plan to go to law school.
