There’s government loans for students. Most students qualify for
them, they are no-interest or low interest. You need to fill out aFAFSA (I think that’s right) onine. Make an appointment with your
financial advisor. The government will base how much they give you
based on your “estimated cost of attendance” will be. The schoolestimates that number (and they don’t count your daughter)…they say
for a student at our school the average rent is____, the average
amount on groceries should be_____, etc. Then they loan you thatamount. So they will give you enough for full tuition and then some
for rent, food, etc. Not that much above tuition, but you make it
work. My husband is just finishing up dental school and we have 3kids. He can only work saturdays and I do babysitting here and
there, but basically we live off the student loans he gets. No way
we could’ve gone to school without getting into debt…no a 1/4million dollars later we’ll be graduating (yeah)..but spending 4 more
years doing a residency for an oral surgery program 🙁 Good luck!
