I'm transferring into my dream school, but can't afford it at all. What can I do?

I would rethink the decision to transfer to a school you cannot afford. What is it about this school that makes it your “dream school”? Can you find that quality or qualities in a less expensive setting? Are you prepared to take on a significant amount of debt that might delay your ability to begin your adult life (marriage, family, travel, etc.)? So many young people are in this position now and it is not a good way to live. Consider this move carefully.
