So it’s May, you have your award letters. You don’t get enough financial aid from any school. What now?
How about delaying admission for a year and taking some online classes to get requirements out of the way? It’s certainly cheaper than tution at your first choice university.
Yes, I know this isn’t what you want to hear. There’s been a trend recently that people are entitled to a degree where and when they choose, but the reality in these tough economic times is that we have to make hard decisions. That may include either not attending the school of your choice, or delaying admission while you take classes online or at a community college.
Seriously, you should look at this problem from a completely different angle. You have options that you likely have not considered yet.
