Is 15k for room and board just too much to manage on our own?

Anmol Rkstar 11 Rep.

As my parents wont be paying any penny for my living costs, i guess the responsibility lands solely on my shoulders. Is it possible to somehow manage that sum(by working) on my own?(The school is in New York.)

I don’t think it is easily doable. If you get paid for $10/hr and if you work for 20 hours/week (meaning 80 hours in a month)- so in a year you can make 80*10*12=9600. And of course there will be breaks, summer breaks so even that cost is a great stretch. It is not doable. You would need to find some alternative sources of funding.
