Today, I needed to pay my tuition for this semester. Though it was a small amount compared to last year, I still needed to take out a private loan. So I began the process and started filling out the required information.
With every page of information, “Are you sure about the information? CANCEL/ YES” would pop up. I know they just want to make sure that I know what I’m doing, but with every prompt, it felt like they were second guessing my decision on top of my own second guessing. The whole time I was wondering if I was doing the right thing. Not to mention the pages of fine print also overwhelmed me.
The great responsibility of paying back a loan is mind numbing. When I finally got to the signatures, I felt downright sad. “This is a lot of money,” I thought. I felt like I sold my soul to the devil.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed dealing with school loans, Lovelies? Is college more expensive then you originally thought?
