I just got my financial aid offers for fall 2013, spring 2014. I get free money that will pay for all my college costs. Should I take out a student loan for extra just in case money?

Unless you absolutely HAVE to, don't go into debt with student loans!

Only you can make that decision, but there is nothing in my life that I regret MORE than my student loans.

You're kidding right?

If not, no you shouldn't get a loan. Buy used books, pay your tuition and you might even have some $ left afterwards.

Dont take out a loan unless you have to. My financial aid covers everything right now and I'm not going to take any extra money unless its absolutely a must.

Don't take out loans unless you have too.  Otherwise you'll be paying them off the rest of your life.
