    Is it worth it financially to spend more money going to a four year college or should I go to a community college and then transfer to a four year?

      I am starting grad school in the fall and my parents and I decided that the interest rate on a student loan is too high to be worth it so even though they did not budget for grad school they decided they will pay then I will pay them back (so it is an informal loan from the Bank of Mom and Dad). Does anyone have recommendations about how to structure this?

      I get college work study as part of my financial aid package. If I want to have a decent amount of spending money as well as contribute to my tuition, what's a good percentage of that to keep for myself?

        Several professors have expressed to me that it "isn't worth it" to attend graduate school or a PhD program if you have to pay for it. In other words, if no school is willing to pay your way, then you're better off picking another career path than taking on that kind of debt. Does anyone (especially people who have gone through graduate/PhD programs or are planning to) have any thoughts on this?

        I'm thinking about becoming "independent" from my parents to get in state tuition for a graduate school (my parents live in a different state, so this is the only way to do it). I'm 21. What are the benefits to still being listed as a dependent? How much would I have to be saving from the tuition price for it to be worth it to change my status?

        Asked by: Julie

        What are people's opinions on 'free' higher education? Obviously nothing is ever 'free', and it would come out of taxpayer dollars, but would this help or hurt the economy? I'm hearing (and reading) articles on both sides of this issue, but I am not sure how many come from reliable economists. Also, if it is a negative impact on the economy, how are other countries managing to do this successfully (or is it actually detrimental to them in the long run?)?
