Nope. this is a very weak response to the prompt. The only line that you can use from this is as follows: I am applying to some other lower cost universities with some form of financial aid as a backup plan. That is the opening statement for your revised response. From here, you can indicate a character of resiliency, hope, determination, an "I can do it" attitude, all of which can help to create your 4 year plan. For example, you can say that since you will be going to school using financial aid, you will have to look into and procure yourself a part time job in order to help augment your income and offset some of the non-aid covered fees that you will be incurring. If you know that you can be hired as a part timer based upon your currently existing skills, then indicate that this is the field where you will find a part time job so that you can combine your studies, skills, and a chance to spin it off into a financial opportunity over the next 4 years. This should make it easier for you to also gain regular employment, possibly at the same company where you worked as a part timer upon your graduation. That is the kind of mindset that these reviewers are looking for in their scholarship applicants.
