How poor is your family/ how much financial aid can you get?

I am not paying for college right now. I have a couple of thousand bucks in loans...that's it.

I'm like lower middle class I guess and my mom and dad are divorced and I have three brothers. They give me more money than the actual tuition bill and I get e check each semester for however much they go over by. Also you can get scholarships for basically anything. There are a ton of them just looking to be taken advantage of.

doesn't your hs have college counselors? i'd say your best bet is to go to them, not here.

 

Yes my HS does have college counselors.:rolleyes:

 

I'm asking here because I don't want to hear the typical from them, and I also want tips from people who are out there doing it right now.

 

Anyway, I might look into doing the junior college thing or at least stay in the state.

junior college saves you a ton and i believe colleges look at junior colleges before people out of highschool

 

Bingo.

 

Instead of suffering from "refrigerator child syndrome" go to a CC get an A.A. in Liberal arts or some other wide open bullshit. Do good/party and at the same time not be burdened by the stress so many have: "this fucking "prestigious" 4 year has me by the proverbial balls".

yeah, i went and got my associates for free because i qualified for a full free ride. i decided to go to an expensive private school after that and took out a ton of student loans. then i took out more for other things...haha. but that is a good move or you can always go this route:

This is pretty solid, and I would recommend going for a BS over a BA. Probably the hardest thing about college is paying for it, so get that shit figured out before hand.. spend a year after HS working and saving if you need to, and look into moving and establishing residency out of state if you can find a better or cheaper school.

What matters most is what you make of your time in school. If you're a dumb ass, go to harvard, take it semi-seriously; guess what? you'll still be a dumb ass.

 

but, if you're super smart, go to a state school and take advantage of your time, you'll still be super smart and will be much better off than the cat who went to harvard. especially 5 years or so after graduation. when you're years removed from college, employers dont give a shit what your gpa was or what school you went to. it's all about what you did since college.

 

point is, where you go is not going to fully define you. don't trip too hard, just take shit seriously. the more serious you take it, the better you'll be.

 

trust.

I'll add this: if you are super smart with rich parents go to the private college.. if not take a scholarship to the best school you can get into.. Call me crazy, but colleges/universities are not created equal, graduating from Harvard Business School with a 2.5 average is light years beyond graduating from say UMASS with a 3.7.. even though I doubt anyone finishes HBS with less than 3.0

Fuck trade school. Go to a decent 4 year college, major in business or finance. Work towards being a financial or business consultant and make bank.

 

then jump off the 50th story in your city's financial center once the economy TOTALLY falls out, and the money that you handle isn't worth the paper it's printed on!

 

TRADE SCHOOL. SMART PEOPLE CAN TEACH THEMSELVES ANYTHING FURTHER. COLLEGE IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION AFTER THAT, TOO

oh, you'd be surprised. you'd be VERY surprised. it's more if you can pay the outrageous fees than anything.
