So I'm hoping to go to uni this year. And since going to uni isn't the least expensive thing in the world to do, I'd rather like to have a student loan. To achieve this, I either have to fill in the paper applicaiton (a 28-page novel), or apply online. According to the letter I got with the paper application, the ability to apply online would be available in April.

Guess which way I would like to apply?

Guess which way I'm going to have to apply?

In early May, they said (on the website) that they were hoping to have the online application available in May. Currently, they say that "Update...Update...This summer we will be announcing the launch date for applying on-line." They would like the application in by the 2nd of July for new applicants (like me). For current students, they would like it in this Friday.

It doesn't help that I used the original form as a template which I was then going to type up on the website. So I've got two choices: I either wait in the hope that I will be able to apply online before the deadline, or I reprint the form and fill that in. Since I would rather like my first payment sometime this year, I think I'll have to use pen and paper.

Out of curosity, just when was everyone going on about how the 'paperless office' would revolutionise life?
