If I pay for 100% of my college education, would I be better off if my parents will give me a college graduation present: half of the money they presently plan to pay for my college costs? If my parents paid for me to go to college they probably won’t have enough for my siblings. If I paid for me to go to college then My siblings could maybe go. I would need to get a small business or a small job and use savings. Either I could pay 100% for me to go to college, My parents could pay 100% for me to go to college, or I could pay most money and my parents some. What I want to do is have a small business and pay for myself to go and if my parents want to help I’ll let them. College is very expensive which means that I would have to pay a lot to go to college. This is my plan for me to get into college.
