This is the main reason why I chose to attend a state university and 
work as much as possible. I should graduate with minimal (poss. zero, 
as I'll hit the magical age of 24 next year for financial aid 
considerations) debt. I was accepted to two west coast liberal arts 
colleges, but would have been in deep debt in the end. Good enough to 
get in, too much of a slacker in high school to get much in 
scholarships or grants.

(anyway, if I hadn't I never would have moved from political science 
into fine arts/photography and doomed myself to a lifetime of poverty)
