Loan For college?

I want to a loan for college for like $5,000. nothing crazy, just to help me pay. My mom makes me feel somewhat bad for wanting to get a loan and says I should just use the grants, but I dont think its enough. She makes me feel like if I get a loan it's the end of the world and my life is ruined. Should I still get a loan to help?

    A loan can be a reasonable choice if you NEED the money and can't get by without it.  If you have grants and scholarships and can pay your way with those and maybe a part-time job, then that is a better option.  $5,000 isn't a lot if that's ALL you take out for all of your college, but $5,000 a year will add up.

    Maybe consider getting a part-time job?
