Best Students Loans

Postby qwertstar » Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:51 am


I am 17 and a little stressed out right now. My mom spent all my college money during my childhood and is messing with my head about going to college or not. To make matters worse, she closed my bank account, I can't get a job or internship easily, and I'm left with selling things on ebay. In addition, I was planning on attending community college, but my family wants me to be literally thrown out the house---LITERALLY. I do not have any friends or have good relationships with people. Furthermore, I didn't want to use student loans for room and board and tuition until I transfered out of my first college, however I have no choice. What are the best student loans sites that will help me without my parents assistance? Also, can anyone give me some helpful advice on this situation?

Tough situation.

While you're 17 you can file for emancipation from your parents. This will allow you to have a bank account which your mother does not have access to and while you may have to live on your own, it's something to look into. Just know that once you're 18, you are legally allowed the same rights so it may be easier to wait.

Here is a list of resources that may be able to provide some guidance...
