    Unfortunately I had to go private. Grants and public loans combined don't even fully cover my tuition, but my family is supportive so several members are dipping into what little savings they have to help cover the difference in order to keep me from having to rely on private loans with exorbitant rates.

    It really is disgusting the expecting that any person who wants to train for almost any sort of professional career is expected to load up with such massive amounts of debt before they even get their foot in the door.
