They sent me a check for about 1500, for overpayment. I graduated two years ago, so it was an extra happy day! When I first moved to California, they sent me a check for 7000 for overpayment. Don't ask me how I overpaid so much (something to do with some screwy loans?), but it allowed me to put down a good down payment on my car, and combined with the other few thousand I'd already saved, pay rent until I found a job. Now? It's going right into the emergency fund and hopefully, staying there.
Now I don't feel quite so terrible about NOT saving the past couple of months.
