Like I said, I'll subsidize whatever portion loans will not cover.

My parents made the same deal with me, and it worked out pretty well. I also went to a really low tuition school (out of state at WVU was less than most in-state Virginia schools), and got a 100% scholarship midway through my second year.

I was, however, really dumb and kept my student loan money. I'm kicking myself now for not investing it, immediately paying them back after graduating, and profiting the interest. Oh well, lesson learned.
