I wonder if I’m the only one who feels guilty for not saving more for college.

So my parents were poor, ( I qualified for the full Pell grant when I was an undergrad). I think the kindest thing is to do what my parents did and just be super honest with me as to how much they could pay, and then sit down and do some math together to figure out a reasonable plan. I do really think that in the end, and granted I ended up in a well-paying career in my major, that it set me on a better, more realistic path from the beginning than other people my age got.
