  2. Toddler So frustrated....dd finishing junior year - has dreams of going to private liberal arts school in great city. I never wanted her to take out loans to make this happen but I'm...(more) 1 hr 40 min ago (68 replies)
    getting more and more worried about her even using all of the money we saved for college on undergrad. Our country is getting less and less friendly toward hard working middle class young people (any age I guess.) Dd does not want to go to a large state school and the smaller state schools feel.....uninspiring to her.

              will make her no money. I am telling her she's not allowed to take out loans for undergrad but I'm not sure I can stop her, honestly. She doesn't need to start life out with $30K in debt when she'll be lucky to make $30/yr in any job she wants to do.

                  That $100K won't cover 4 yrs of college is the problem. It's ridiculous. After all the saving....and the saving we're still doing....the idea that both students and parents should take out loans to make tuition payments is ridiculous. And I get it - she can go to some random state school with no financial burden whatsoever but that's not her dream. And while it's really easy to type to a stranger "we don't always get what we want," it's a lot harder to actually go through this with a right brained, emotional dd who has busted her ass to make straight As and really thought she was going to walk into any college she wanted.

          and $5,000 loan to the parents. I mean, I'm supposed to come up with $28K/yr AND take on debt? We actually have over $100K in a college saving account for her - when we set that goal at her birth, we thought that would completely cover 4 yrs of any undergrad. Sigh.

            kids up to have more options for college and I don't think it's going to make a big difference in the end. We're still at the beginning of the process but I wonder if her financial aid package would look different if we didn't have money in a college savings account. Would we get dinged if we lived in a more expensive house but had nothing set aside for college? Oh well - we just have to keep on looking and hoping she can get excited by an honors college within a state school.
