Fees just became too expensive

<p>Hi guys,</p>

<p>I want to make this story short. Initially it wasn't a problem for my parents to support me with about 50k per year, however things changed because sometimes you never know how things turn out. This circumstence leads to the fact that I can't pay the fees for a LOT of universities I applied to ( all of California for example ). I really don't know what to do now, since I've invested so much time and money into SAT,Toefl and Applications.
Of course there is always the possibility to visit a CC, but I am not really sure about that thing.
Additionally I dont think that I am competitive enough to get financial aid in any form, moreover I've already applied without need for financial aid.
What should I do now ? Consider CC ? Can I apply for financial aid after I got accepted at a university ? ( Although they always want a certificate of finance before they accept you , I guess ?</p>

<p>I don't have an answer really, but I do share your pain.....curse you Certificate of Finances!!!!</p>

<p>You could try applying to some more public schools because they are cheaper than private schools so hopefully covering the cost won't be much of a burden.</p>
