Going to college is a life changing experience for a number of people because these individuals will experience
something that they have previously only seen in the movies. Unfortunately, the movies do not show these people
how expensive going to college actually is, as Hollywood tends to focus on the more glamorous aspects of school.
When you are finally accepted into a good college, you will have to decide on whether you want to work your way
through college or apply for a student loan. In the end, your best bet is to apply for a student loan because it
will allow you to focus on your studies and avoid getting burnt out.
A high percentage of people who attend college end up dropping out and there are a number of reasons for this.
First of all, many of these people are not motivated at all and they end up going to school just to get their
parents off their backs. Other people end up tiring themselves out because they are trying to work and go to
school at the same time. A student loan can eliminate this stress from a student's life and give the student
the chance to focus on school without any other worries.
While there are reasons to avoid a student loan, such as the interest rates and the difficult repayment
period, but the goal of going to college is to get the most out of your education so that you can make a good
living in the real world. Being able to truly focus on your studies gives you the best chance of doing this,
so it is definitely the way to go.
