QUESTION
Why do I need to go to college? and What are some ways my mom and I can pay for it?
I’m 14 years old and I’m doing an essay for the school and they ask me why i want to go to college and how can i pay for it and that i need to find a solution.

ANSWER
You need to go to college because it is necessary for pretty much any career these days. Also, almost all colleges offer internships and co-ops, which offer great experience that will be helpful after you graduate and are looking for a job.
As for paying, start with FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. After you will this out you will get some money from the federal government, and most states use this form to determine who will get aid from the state, too. Then, apply for student aid from the college you will be attending. After this, start looking into student loans. If all this still isn’t enough, get a job!
