I really want to go to college, but after my deposit was put down, my mother refused to allow me to go to the college, and I filed as a dependent. Depending on how much I make this summer (provided I can FIND a job), I'll have to get a loan for about 2-5 grand, but my guess is about 3. This makes me ineligible for the PLUS loan, though, and my mom has poor credit, anyway. I don't really have credit built up, so is there anything I can do? Maybe go independent? Although I filed as a dependent, I should be going to basic military training during the beginning of next year, and the school wants me to confirm it, so can I change it? I just need to figure out a way to make things affordable, since my grades suffered due to personal problems, but I'm certain I'll flourish in college, I just need to get there.
