Letter: MAP situation is aggravating

The following letter to the editor was published in a March 23, 2011, edition of The State Journal-Register.

"I am writing to bring to light yet another despicable act by the state of Illinois.

My husband, a 35-year-old student at the University of Illinois Springfield, received an e-mail Thursday relaying information that the state has significantly moved up its application date for Illinois MAP grants. Any application received on or after Monday, March 21, would not be considered. I have a couple of problems with this."
