ANYWAY. My sister was hanging out with my cousin yesterday, and somehow the subject of how she was dreading college because of how much she would have to take out in loans came up. And my cousin was totally confused because "Duh! Why not just use the college fund grandpa and grandma set up for us when we were born? That's what I did!".
My sister and I had NO idea there was a college fund set up for us. I'm just starting my THIRD year of college. And my sister is starting college in the fall. What should I do? Is there anything I can do? I'm just so upset right now. Our father left us when we were born, and my mother was paralyzed by a stroke a few years ago. My sister and I have had to balance taking care of my mom on the weekend and school work. So needless to say, a college fund would have really been a blessing.
