I went to a state university where the tuition was low, but the education was very good. The school was not prestigious, so it did not attract a lot of the wealthier students. Most of the students worked to pay for part or all of their education and did not have a lot of extra money. Most of us were in the same boat, poor, studying hard, working hard, and having a great time. Of course, when money was really tight, or I was feeling very overworked, I would think about how much easier it would be if I came from a family with money. The flip side is that I do not owe my success to anybody else. My success is mine and mine alone. I also did not have any familial pressures as to what to study or what career path to take because I was financing my own education.
