Some schools have a : work-study program that provides some income &amp; fits into your class/study schedule. Trying to work outside job may conflict w/ classes &amp;/or study time or exhaust you so can't concentrate on school. Loans can be helpful, but payback interest may be major burden. Check w/ finance office about possible scholarships you may be eligible for.

Depends on the sourc: If from reliable company, ought to be OK. If from another country, have to consider contamination w/ heavy metals, unlisted ingredients, no active med in it. Even those in drug store have been found not to have any of what's on the label. If uncertain, ask pharmacist in store to advise you, or your doc can recommend a reliable brand.
