    • Thanks government. For inflating college tuition and allowing children chose their lifelong careers right out of highschool. If I had to give myself advise four years ago it's take a break, get something on your resume and apply to uni once you know what you want to do.

My parents aren’t gonna contribute anything, and though I had to put their info in, I put a $0 expected assistance from them. Talked with one of their financial people, and they accused

    • Don’t go to college. Or if you’re going to go, go to community college. See if your parents will let you stay and just work for a couple years first. Let that frontal lobe finish cooking before you agree to debt at interest rates you mathematically can never pay back.

    • If you are in this situation (like i was four years ago) i went to private loans for my schooling. I was just a dumb kid and the only loans i could get was ones with fixed 11.5% int. Which is horrible. And the worst part is if you dont pay they exact amount back that they want per month they (1/2)
