    Yes, I transferred in 5 classes which cut my cost down a lot. I feel you on community colleges being so packed. It really sucks. And yes, the college algebra class is pretty hard. I had the very best math instructor ever, if I may say so lol. So he made it easier on us.. but You have to push through that class. If math is not your strong suit, go on khan academy . com and watch ALL the algebra videos starting from the basics. I did that last summer and it saved my butt. Also, go to tutoring on day 1. Do not wait until it gets hard. And with failing, it is a 2 fail rule. Basically if you take math and fail it, you have one more chance. If you fail it again, you are out. But you WILL NOT fail if you put your mind to it. You can do anything you set your heart on. And they have you apply for financial aid in the middle of the program, so I guess that yeah... maybe you could get denied for the loans? Just make sure that whoever is signing with you has good enough credit. I have to reapply in November and I am gonna try to qualify without my mom on the second. The government loans are all me. the private is her. And yes, I know the feeling. It took me 3 years to decide on west coast. I wish I would've done it earlier, but I was not ready. Most people that say bad things do not look past the price tag. It is not cheap, so you gotta know, without a doubt, that this is what you want. Good luck
