What are the pros/cons of living at school vs. commuting. #campuslife #trafficjam

I want to live at School, my pocketbook says I have to commute. I live 45 minutes from campus on a no traffic, best case scenario commute. I am concerned about the time, stress and safety of this twice daily commute and will talk to my advisor about maximizing classes on certain days so as not having to travel everyday. I will also see if there are some online classes in my curriculum I can take. I am concerned I will be missing out on an important part of my college experience by not living on campus. I really don't want to incur a huge debt, but I don't qualify for any Grants or free money. It's so difficult to determine what's best for me now vs. what's best in the long run. #campuslife #trafficjam #personal-finance

I know we all have a hard time with money and school and bills. Does anyone have some good advice on how to save and then continue to save.

How can we socialize and be happy when all these bills and school work keep falling down on us. #money #saving #expenses #college #job #financial-planning #personal-finance #money-management

Is it worth it to take out a student loan?

I want to make sure that taking out a loan is a good idea. If I don't get a job right out of college, it will be hard to pay back any student loans, and I'm not guaranteed a job out of college. Is it a good idea to take out a student loan, or should I try to find a less costly option of getting an education? #loans #studentloans #financial-planning #personal-finance

Are unpaid internships worth it?

I'm currently a full time student working at a part time job. I'm currently looking for an internship to work in the public health field, but I noticed that most of them are unpaid and demand a significant amount of dedication. I understand that internships are extremely important for career advancement, but I don't know if it's worth pursuing without payment. Right now, I work part time and make enough to pay off school debt, pay for supplies, and personal necessities. I know that if I take an unpaid internship, I would struggle financially, but I just wanted to know if it's worth the sacrifice. If I was to take an internship, should I quit my job to put my 100% into the internship? Are unpaid internships really worth pursuing? #internships #personal-finance #publichealth #money-management #career-counseling #problem-solving

Is it better to go into debt to go to an Ivy League or go to a UC and have a comparatively smaller debt level?

Hi! My name is Anina and I'm a high school senior interning at CareerVillage. I'm facing this decision currently for Brown University vs. UCSD for Computational Biology. Most of my family and friends want me to go to Brown, but my best friend pointed out that tuition for four years at UCSD is equivalent to one year at Brown. Currently, based on students and alumni I've met at both schools, I'm looking towards Brown. Thoughts on the drawbacks and benefits, and which decision I should lean towards? #college #computer-science #finance #money #personal-finance #ucsd #brown-university
