    My name is Emily Glazer and I'm a reporter for The Wall Street Journal newspaper. I'm working on an article about tackling the financial aid process and saw your smart comments on College Confidential.

    Specifically, I was interested in the advice you gave on appealing financial aid awards at college. Did you go through that experience yourself?

    If so, are you open to a brief phone interview for the story? I'd love to hear more about your experience and how you made it a successful one.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    You have a good point, Glido! Thank you. I worry too much--a consequence of motherhood. Thanks for your thoughts.
