Question by waiting for melchior gabor 🙂: How to not go completely broke when I go to college?
I’m 16 and my grades aren’t good enough for a regular university so I’m going to community college. The only thing is where I am (Atlanta) we get a grant to basically go to community college for free basically. It’s called the Hope Grant. But I don’t want to stay in Atlanta, I want to live in California, Seattle, Chicago, or Dallas. How can I not go broke when I get to college? How can I not go broke when I transfer (I plan to transfer to UCLA, SUNY Purchase, Colombia College Chicago or University of Texas)?? Thank you!!!

You really have to set a limit on what you spend per month/week whatever. Give yourself a limit of say $ 25 a week or something. Its rough since there are so many things you can possibly do.
My freshman year in college, I put myself on a rough budget of about $ 75 a month, that way I still had money to take a spring break trip to college fest in canada. it was epic
