Hi all, I'm starting college next fall and it's time I started planning how I'm going to pay for it. How are/did you pay for college? Specific types of loans and lenders would help.

Workin at DQ will cover some of the first year.

My grandma is more than likely going to pay for quite a bit; I know I'll have a few student loans though.

Working. My. Ass. Off.

No money from parents, barely any scholarships, cheap ass relatives. I have to go to community college because I could never raise enough cash to go to a four year school, and I don't want to spend the rest of my life paying off student loans.

When I went to college I was working night shift at Ihop as a cook makin like $8.50 an hour full time. that paid for all of my living expenses and then some, and I had Fafsa to pay for most of my tuition and what not. I also had to take out some loans and I had to buy the books myself. It got too hard though because I only slept about 15 to 30 hours a week for months at a time. I couldnt do it so I dropped, and started working a job. Now I joined the marines so I suppose when I eventually go back they will pay for it

My parents pay for tuition. I pay for everything else from working. I guess I am very very fortunate that way.

I'm paying around 24.5k a year at my university. My family's not wealthy, so they took out a huge loan for me. Then I had to take out a couple of smaller loans and I had some grants and scholarships. I also have work study, so I'm doing that too. It's gonna be hard repaying all my loans later in life.

go to community college, its way cheaper, like 1500/semester for me, I dont work over school so i can get good grades and some schoarships then work insane hours over summer; like 60-70/week. no matter what you have to bust ass the whole time and its not easy... puting yourself through school is respectable. PS high school is a joke, even if you took honors/ap stuff. prepare to work hard

Davis is great man. It's just a little college town, and it has a good atmosphere to it. I just moved into a pretty tight house with four other guys and we're having a blast here. We are building a mini-ramp to skate on, so I'm way psyched for that. I like Davis. Where are you going?

And what year are your friends?

My mom is considering sending me to Canada. Really.

It's on account of the fact that my current college costs a BOATLOAD of money, and the fact that I'm Canadian entitles me to Canadian Financial Aid...which in retrospect I should have done in the first place...

how much is 15,000 PHP? I didn't know they played guitar in the Phillipines. I thought they played ukelele or something.


Because, of course, we're too far away from places with guitars and all that stuff so we play ukelele...

Hahaha, at my college, Porter, the smell of weed and stuff is always hanging around in the quad, especially at night. It's awesome here. I love how the campus is basically like a bunch of buildings situated in the woods with bridges and stuff. It's like I'm hiking to class everyday. It's great. Also, at Porter, there's something called the "First Rain." That's when classes start and the first time it pours here, people run outside butt naked around campus. Hahaha, that's gonna be one amusing day.

Why the **** would you do that? Just do a study abroad or something if you want to go to Brazil.
