Emotional and Mental Health

I realize my questions regarding Ivy League schools are unrealistic, and as a society we obsess *way too much* over colleges just because they are prestigious. In the grand scheme of things they are only colleges; what one does with their life is much more important.

I struggled a lot in my freshman year (and dropped out) due to my emotional health and having to live with a family member who was toxic. I want desperately to move to my own apartment.

What if someone, though, cannot advance in college and function because of a family situation? What did you do?
