    I'm new to this (have a HS sr) and we have been saving as best as possible for our children's college educations since they were born (and still don't have enough), but one college funding option I've heard is for student to borrow money from his parents and pay them back with or without interest after college. While you might not want to ask them for money outright, what about a loan? Also, have you asked them about helping you pay for college? They might be willing to help a little. We have been paying for our kids their whole childhoods (after school programs, special school trips, club sports, music lessons, etc.), but we don't want them to have a huge amount of debt after college so we will pay as much as we can (and hope the school will give merit or need-based aid) and they will work during the summer and some during college to pay for college.

    I don't have any feedback on your chances or recs for college. My sr is not looking at CS.

    All the best to you!
