DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: Public or Private When Money Is Tight?

DEARSUGAR and Concerned Cum Laude need your help. Finances are tight, but will loans be a small price to pay for the future you've always dreamed of?

Dear Sugar
I am going to college in the fall and I am having trouble deciding if I should go to public or private school. My mom said that I could go anywhere that I got in. I would really want a college private school experience, but my mom is a single mother and I know that she'd just have to take out loans to send me.

Should I go to private school and get out of my hometown, meet different types of people and enrich my life? ... or should I go to State and stay at home even though I don't really want a continuation of high school in college? Concerned Cum Lauder
