Savings mostly. And then I was still short about $2K, so since I owned my car and it was worth more than that, I took out a loan on it with the car as collateral for what I still needed. So it was kind of creative.
College doesn't have to be that expensive. Heck, I finished a master's degree by age 22 with $1,800 in debt. And I'm not even working in that field now! I worked multiple jobs, took full loads and worked for the dorm system to pay for room/board/and in grad school that covered tuition and a stipend. Well worth it. But college is no guarantee of anything. I have lots of college friends working at waitressing, etc. It really depends on your patience, drive and ambition and willingness to work I think.
