I worked full time and went to school…that’s what Fiance is doing too… We didn’t take any time off just sometimes had to take a little bit fewer classes. It sucked. It still sucks (I now make enough as a RN but they are making me go back for more education!?!) We both lived on our own. We hardly saw each other and used a lot of credit 🙂 But it worked out! And we are far more close now than had we had it all handed to us.

It always just seems to work out!

Sorry that you are going through this! It’s soo stressful, but in the end it will be totally worth it!

It’d burn me to have my sibs treated differently than me.  I feel for you!  If they won’t pay outright, will they give you an interest-free loan that you repay (set it up formally, not just a handshake!)?  My parents did that for all of us to get us through college.

Not much advice beyond suggesting you look into loans and trying to cut bills – lots of posts on that.  I worry if you put off school now, it might turn into a habit and too difficult to start back up.

My bff is going through that too. She barely makes enough money to live, but yet her mom is paying something like $600 a month in parent loans for her brother and sister. They both make decent money, but have not offered to take over the loans, and her mom is too nice to ask. Now, my bff needs some money but her mom can’t help her even though she wants to because everything extra is going to the other 2 loans
