Any1 else here paying 20k-30k a year in tuition. I received merits and need based scholarships but i still gotta pay a shitload remaining. If so, what do you guys do to decrease it and can someone explain what sub and unsub loans is. If i work during the year how can i budget my earnings so tht i have enough to pay off tuition and have fun?
The only way to decrease that number significantly is grants/scholarships/etc, anything that you don't have to pay back. Loans are obvious.
You can't pay off much with a job during the year, unless its full time or something. I'll only be taking a few classes for my first semester because of AP credits and shit, so I'll be mostly working or partying. I don't expect for the job to pay for much though, because if you figure you make around $700-1000 a month working a part time job, that won't do much on your loans unless you are saving a large majority of that.
