This is the middle-class trap. In reality, kids from middle-class families are squeezed, because they are ineligible for most financial aid / scholarships and dont have enough money to go to college on their own.

I was part of that trap. My parents wouldn't or couldn't help me and they made too much for me to get financial financial aid.

Out of curiosity: what are you doing now?

Designing/dev at a popular restaurant guide and mobile app. School loans paid off by my wife and I working full time and only living off of my income.
