    You live in Wisconsin the land of beer, cheese, milk.

    You will have to give a Wisconsin girl a 12 pack.

    Another tip, always keep up with the readings.

    Though it may not be important at that current time, when the mid terms and finals come around a lot better than having to read the whole book in a week.

    Yeah, no joke. A 6 hour commute is crazy! If you could get through college without needing a job I'd totally go for it. I grew up in San Diego where a car is pretty much a necessity, and being that young the car insurance is crazy expensive.

    Just being a stupid kid and buying a bunch of worthless crap like fancy clothes, video games, CD's and such. I'm so against giving 18 year old kids credit cards.

By moving out though you learn leadership skills by doing things related to school that are much harder to pick up later and being involved is very beneficial when your trying to get a job. I would have a lot to show by spending 38k on housing, for one I would be able to enjoy college. For me its different though cause I have a daily 5-6 hour commute..
    That's true. There is definitely a lot of things you pick up by living on your own at an early age. There are positives to doing it that way or deciding to live with your parents through college. I think it just depends where your priorities lie.

    For me, I had to pay for a car, insurance and the credit cards so I worked full-time while I went to school. I wasn't going to be able to live the wild party life in college anyway so the parent situation worked well for me. To each their own ya know?

Student loans are wayyyy better than living with your parents. my financial aid says my parents make too much for me to get a loan in my name. i wish i could get a loan so badly.......
    I lived at home until I was 21 and it was TOTALLY worth it. I was able to knock out most of the credit cards I opened when I was 18 which helps tremendously!

    Besides 4 more years isn't hardly anything. You'll still have another 20 years or so of partying hard (depending on your life plan) so you really wouldn't be missing out on that much. Figure $800/month for rent x 4 years that's $38K blown and nothing really to show for it. Ya know?

    Same here.

    Can't get financial aid because my parents make "too" much but they will not pay for any of my college.




    I'm not loved.

    Why my fiancee and I live in a duplex off campus about 30-40 minutes away. It is about 15,000 a year for room and board, so a total of 30,000 a year for us.

    We spend less than half of that renting a duplex and buying our own food and all those other needed things in life.

    Though she goes to school for free.

    1. Never talk about fight club.

    2. Dont sleep with your tutor, if she catches something, she is gonna be pissed and wont help you anymore.

    3. Dressing casual in T-shirt, shorts, flip flops and a backpack with one strap that crosses your chest doesnt make you look like the laid back cool guy. You look like a tool. Park your ten speed and go get a haircut.

    4. Being sober at a soroity party is like catching dead fish in a barrel.

    5. Being Drunk at a soroity party is like catching dead fish in a barrel.

    6. Your professor wont pass you just because you sit in the front row and wear short skirts everyday.

    I learned these all the hard way.

    I have to go to class Monday and Wednesday at 8:30 AM just because that was the only class available. The thing that sucks is that I have to go back later at 2:00 PM because I have classes from 2:30-6:45 which means I have to waste a lot of gas going back and forth between school and house unless I go and find somewhere to chill for a couple of hours... But still. BLEH!!!

    On the bright side though I only have one one hour class on Tuesdays and Thursdays so I guess there's some good out of that.
