I am a high school student who dreams of going to BU.
I live outside of Boston, was accepted to BU as a guaranteed transfer, but its a ton and I dont want to leave college with over 100 grand in debt. I would be under 100 grand if I went three years, and was an RA junior senior year.
I was accepted to umass boston as a safety and would only pay like two grand a year.
My parents are okay with me staying home and commuting, but life at home is getting tougher. My siblings are driving me crazy (all younger than me). My mom always criticizes tiny things I do. My dad and I have never gotten along.
If I were commuting, would it matter since I'd be at UMB or Id be working so much? Is the low cost worth it?
