When the hope of scholarships is not there, is a loan the only way to go to school? I am so afraid that getting very deep in debt is the only way of finishing my degree. What if I don't find a good job after I finish?
Actually, there are so many means for you to be able to get your degree, but it will also require some sacrifices and discipline. Not a lot of students wish to go the hard road that is why they tend to just go and finish their problems with their finances with student loans. I've read articles suggesting students to delay their college education for a year so that they can get a job first and save a little or go to community colleges first then transfer to a university after two years. Do your own research and see whether you can do those stuff suggested.
