Mo’ money, mo’ problems: how to balance school, life, and work
As crazy as it may sound, having more money isn’t always going to make things better for you.
In fact, there are times when making a less-than-ideal financial decision may be the right thing to do in order for you to keep your sanity.
In college, your goal should be to get your degree in as little time as possible. The less time you are enrolled in college, the more money you’ll save (every extra year of college costs you an additional year of tuition and fees plus the opportunity cost of not working).
It might be worth taking on a little bit of student debt if doing so means you can finish on time—and not have to work yourself to death in the process.
