Should I choose the easier route or the hard one?

I got into a university, but I have no money for that school. However, I already admitted to it and declined all of my other schools because I thought I had note time to find the money. But, they want the initial payment this week. I also signed up for a school in my state, but it won't get back to me before I have to turn in my money for the other school. Should I stick with my state school even if I don't know if they'll accept me or not. Or should I pay my initial payment and hope for the best. #college #university #money #scholarships #help #advice #financial-aid

Go for the job that interests you - if you don't enjoy what you do, then you won't love your job and it won't be worth it in the end. You want to do something that will make you happy and enjoy whether it may be hard or easy!

Kevin’s Answer

I believe state schools and even local community colleges provide the best value for the money for college. I went to a state school and the cost was much less than private schools. My advice is to stick with state school and perhaps consider going to community college for the first year or two then transfer to the university. It'll be much more affordable that way.

Matthew’s Answer

I would agree that state schools or community college will be a better value and you will want to have a plan to pay the bills before jumping in. Hope is not a plan.


Talk to friends and family to get ideas on sources of funding including loans or scholarship opportunities that can help. Maybe defer the university offer for a year and attend a local college to obtain some credits while you create a plan. Make sure the credits will transfer to the university if your plan is to transfer after the first year. Good luck!
