    Question Who here goes to college on their parents bank account?

    I was wondering who here is going to college, and has their parents paying for it?

    Do you even work, or do you spend all your free time partying?

    A combination of my parents' cash, my cash, student loans, and a nice scholarship (which, unfortunately, runs out this term).

    > Do you even work, or do you spend all your free time partying?

    WTF's that supposed to mean? I work my ass off here. I also party a lot, but not any more than anyone else around here. It's a matter of knowing when to do which.

    Great, I've shouldered this debt for no reason, then. Dammit.

    it is common in India to see students go to Masters with their parents money.. I have applied for a loan for my undergraduate course which starts in september... In a way i feel that using parents money for education is a bad idea.. My parents make me me so odd when some times they make an issue out of sometin verry small.. I want to be independent as sson as possible..

    I'll be going to college next fall; it's a combination of student loans, parents, scholarship and grants.

I didn't want my parents to pay for anything so i just did good in high school. However i also work my ass off!!! And I get to party a lot as well, I am in TKE a fraternity at Towson University in Maryland.

    Jeez, there's nothing wrong with going to school on your parents'
    money. In fact, that's exactly what should be expected of every
    parent. They have a moral obligation to get their children prepared
    for life. And paying for their education is part of that..

    The kids who's parents don't pay their tuition are the kids who
    were accidents. You know, "unexpected births." It just seems like
    anybody who wanted kids in the first place would have waited
    until they were financially capable of supporting them.

    >... blah, blah, blah Humvee, blah, blah, blah...

    Humvees are lame. Nobody thinks your cool if you drive one... In
    fact, don't be surprised if a pack of wild hippies egg your automobile
    because they're angry that you're ruining the planet.

    haha, agree with ethic about humvees. My parent's don't expect me to pay much for college, but I'll help out anyways. They don't want me to work, just to concentrate at school.

    Worked nights.

    We have HECS (higher education contribution scheme). When you earn any cash the tax department slowly takes back the cost of your education.
