    The tuition was the same amount and so we paid some of the amount and my daughter paid the rest with loans like we have done for her freshmen and sophomore year. Before leaving, she also had a job and saved most of her money for her expenses abroad. Whatever she couldn’t cover we helped her pay and then of course she used her credit card which we have begun to pay off.

    We helped her out as much as we could, but for the most part she took care of it herself. She took out loans, but we saw this trip as an investment rather than an expense; an investment from which she would benefit from in the long run.
