How does a young person make it in life?
I’m 18 and I found a college that is literally perfect for me. My problems are as follows, in 2009 my parents made a lot of money. My dad was bringing home 5,000 a month and my mom 2,000 a month. FASFA requires my parents W-2 for 2009, so I don’t fit their requirements. But, my parents are also dirt broke and haven’t paid their mortgage in months so their credit sucks. I have applied for a loan and the only way i can get it is if i have a co-signer. The only people i have is my parents. So if they were to co-sign i wouldn’t get it. Oh and i applied for a credit card where you dont need credit, and apparently I’m to horrible for them too. So while trying to gain credit and build myself up I’ve done the opposite by being rejected, multiple times. Oh yea not to mention i get about 7,000 a year, if and only if I had a very lucky year. With that i have to pay school, insurance both car and health, and have to find out how to live on my own. Please help me. I do not know how to get out of this rut. Any financial advice will be so helpful.
