Not sure if I should get a tooth pulled

So about six months ago I was eating some pretzel rods when I felt something sort of crack in the back of my mouth only to find that part of one of my back molars (that had a filling) had broken. I just got it fixed 2 weeks ago ( It didn't hurt so I wasn't in a rush) the dentist believed that it broke of some sort of cavity near the actual filing. He said that the damage was rather deep so he didn't know if my new filling was going to hold or not. He told me my other options were to get a root canal or pull the tooth. The tooth is doing fine, but anything could happen. So I was wondering if push comes to shove should I just pull the tooth? I'm a 20 year old college student so I really can't afford to put thousands of dollars into a tooth no one can even see.
