Okay so I really want to go out of state for college but my parents are really REALLY against it for the fact that we just can't really afford it...it's not like we're super broke but we jus don't have enough to cover the expenses. And I also have a younger sister who will be entering college as well in a couple of years and I guess they are saving up some money for her too.
I talked to my counselor about it and she said i should apply to just a couple out of state private schools and rack up some scholarship money to cover the expenses. And my doctor (when my doctor gave me a physical) she also gave advice that even though I wouldn't be able to afford it, I should at least try because I wouldnt regret it down the road that I didnt apply out of state.
We also applied for FAFSA but Im not sure when it is coming in yet.
Also, I have a couple of out of state schools applications due in the next couple of weeks but I haven't told my parents about applying to them because I'm scared they're gonna say no.
I'm not the most elite student at my school, but I am a pretty well rounded kid. So I don't know if I'm eligible for full tuition scholarships, but just to clarify, if one does get full tuition scholarship to an out of state school, are all the expenses (dorm, books, etc.) all paid off for while the student attends the school?
So yeah this is my situation and I don't really know what to do. Help?
