What is up with all of these colleges and universities? My daughter is a senior in high school. She is a FAB student. Got A's all through high school with numerous extra activities, tons of volunteering and SO much more. She has been accepted to very good colleges but they don't seem to understand that not all people can write a check for $25,000!! I filled out all the application for financial need. When asked how much can I afford to pay and I honestly answered what the hec are they thinkingthat I am lieing to them? We don't have that much money-thankfully I have my necessities of food, water and shelter but my daughter does need to continue her education and these big time universities are very heartless and really should not send me pamphlets of how they can help make college affordable when all they did was give my daughter false hope!! Can anyone relate? I am so upset and hate to se my daughter cry for working so hard and seeing this happen to her.Answer Question

Has she considered going to a community or small state college for the first two years before transferring to the school that she wants to go to? This will save thousands of dollars and may even qualify her for more scholarships when she transfers to the higher costing university.
