Got into my dream school but I can't afford it
I got into FIT but I was only offered 7K in grants and 4k in fed. subsidized loans and 2k in fed. unsubsidized loans. I already did three semesters at a cc, and I am out of state and my etc is 0 and I am also a first gen. student, which is why I am here because I don't know anybody else to ask. Should I take out a lot in loans to go to FIT, I know this is the right major for me and the right school for me, I would hate to not be able to go here because of financial status. If I do apply for these loans, where do I apply and how do the Federal Parent PLUS loans work? Can anyone advise me on what to do? Is there anyone I can talk to who can advise me about this?20 replies
