No Experience Necessary
Question by Akarui: Should I just give up on my dream college?
I want to go to SUNY Albany. It’s about 17,500 per year. I have no money for it; my EFC is 0. Do you think I should just give up and stay home, go to a city college instead?
Elisa- I couldn’t imagine how stressful it must be paying that much money off!
Answer by Elisa
It is very responsible of you to be considering the financial specifics of your future college education. You need to do what is comfortable and right for you. My family did not contribute to my college education, either, and I am currently paying off approximately $ 85,000 in student loans (from undergraduate and graduate school). While I wish that it had not been so expensive, I am proud of my education from a prestigious school. Good luck!
