I did too. I was very fortunate to get a fair amount of scholarships and grants. I also did Work Study. I borrowed a little, but ended up only borrowing $4,000.00 for my entire undergrad. Of course, that was many years ago. I don't know how available they are today.
Oh, another thing. Meri almost lost it when the idea of Mariah not having a new car when she left for college in Utah was mentioned. She said, "I'm not sending her there without a car." Well, if she's going to live on campus, she may not need a car, especially for the first year. It may be different now, but I recall when some colleges did not allow a freshman, who lived on campus, to have a vehicle there. The entitlement of Meri and Mariah is just ridiculous.
