BUT HOW DO I AFFORD IT?????

Anonymous

I feel your pain freaked out anon. Marquette is outrageously expensive, as is all college in the US (but that’s a whole different discussion).

Loans are how you’ll pay for it. Get as much as you can from the FAFSA and then take out loans elsewhere if you have to. I know it’s not the best choice but if you really want Marquette and you can’t afford it, it’s necessary.

I am at Marquette completely on loans, a $10,000 a year scholarship, and some small grants. When I graduate next month, I will graduate with over $120,000 (possibly closer to $150,000 after interest) in loans.

I do not regret my decision to come to Marquette. In fact, I am extraordinarily grateful and happy that my 18 year-old self understood that some things are worth more than money. 

If you feel strongly that Marquette is the right place for you, that it will help you grow into the person that you want to become then take the loans, work your ass off during school and save money, take every opportunity you can, and make it count. 

I won’t lie to you, a very large part of me is terrified by the amount of time and work it will take me to pay off these loans but I’m more grateful for my time at Marquette. I know that my time at Marquette is worth so much more than the couple tens of thousands of dollars I would have saved going somewhere else. I know that sounds crazy, but it’s true. 

You can always make more money, Anon, you can’t make more time.

No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.
