Even after years of saving, Christina Slota’s parents still couldn’t afford the pricey tuition of a private college. And while she was disappointed that she wasn’t able to attend her “dream school,” she ultimately attended an in-state college, received a terrific education, and graduated without any lingering debt.
Now pursuing her Ph. D in nursing at The University of Pennsylvania, Christina feels grateful that her parents explained the reality of student loans to her before she committed to an undergraduate program. She was still able to find her best fit school, and achieve her goals – all while having fun in college!
