This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!
WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!
SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.
THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.
This is why I’m so afraid to take out a loan to cover the 36k remainder of the 50k tuition needed to get into the only art school I’ve found that will be able to properly help someone like me with ADD. I learn well enough, but I have a hard time when it comes to written exams and tests. Art Institutes is the only school I’ve found that has what I need, but I’m deathly afraid to take out student loans because of the high interest rate. My dad WANTS to help, but he barely makes enough for himself and his deadbeat wife. My mom and her husband probably could help, but she thinks I’m a worthless piece of trash and doesn’t want to invest that much money in her disappointment of a daughter.
And I’m expected to come up with 36,000 dollars?! Working at a restaurant?! Yea, that’s gonna happen.
