Daniel, you're not the only one in the situation. It's tough, it really is. I'm actually in the same boat myself. Maybe even worse with some debt on my shoulders. I don't care though. I have a family I want to uphold and get back on track. As the oldest sibling, I've got kids looking up to me. Can't let them down, you know?
Sure, the big colleges like one I'm at now might provide assurances and loans...but what's the point of it if you're worse off when you're done...when they can't guarantee you the job you worked hard for...or the skills you dreamed of?
