What do you do when you don't have all your tax info by the FAFSA deadline?

I plan on attending graduate school in the Fall 2011 semester and applying for financial aid. The FAFSA form asks numerous questions regarding income, adjusted gross income, and taxes for the 2010 year, but much of this info I will not have in time by the February 15th deadline. How do I proceed?

What can I do about a situation my negligent recommender placed me in?

I am applying to graduate school, and have been gently nudging a former colleague for their letter of recommendation that they agreed to write on my behalf. For the past month and half I have routinely followed up, politely, and empathized with his circumstances as to why he could not get to writing it. He told me repeatedly it would be written. Now my application is incomplete and it is due tomorrow. [more inside]

(Much) older student needs academic reference.

I'm applying to graduate programs for a MA in counseling. I'm closer to 50 than 40 and haven't been a student in nearly 20 years. One program wants "at least one academic reference" among my three letters of recommendation. Does this person necessarily have to be a former professor of mine? [more inside]

Ungrateful entitled prick with his head in the clouds? Or exploited lab rat with legitimate concerns? You make the call!

I'm having trouble dealing with dissatisfaction with my first post-college job, which makes me feel more than a little over-entitled. My frank impression is that the workplace is in shambles and that I'd been lied to in the interview process; more charitably, I'm wondering if perhaps this particular posting just isn't for me. Given the details, what's the best way for me to go about readjusting my mind for the position, readjusting the position for my mind (i.e. closer to what I was told it would be), or giving up the ghost and going for something different?

How can I use my MLIS and my language skills?

What are potential career options for an MLIS graduate interested in using language and translation skills on the job as well? I am a 21-year-old undergraduate student who will be graduating one quarter early in March 2011. This summer I'm applying to the UW's iSchool MLIS program and hope to start Autumn Quarter 2011. I am very interested in traditional library work, but in the last couple years I have worked hard to learn Spanish. I'm currently training to be a Spanish-English translator and interpreter as well, as this will help pay for my MLIS degree. I would really love a career that could incorporate my growing interests in linguistics and translation, as well as my interests in the research and service-oriented aspects of librarianship. Any suggestions? I know the State Department has some positions that would incorporate all these skills, and I'm looking for other options, too.
