A logic board does not get corroded by itself. Something must have caused the corrosion; moisture getting inside, condensation, attempting to clean the keyboard, etc, etc. There's nothing much you can do unless you can somehow convince Apple that the corrosion wasn't caused by you. That's why it's smart to have insurance. Even as a "poor" student, insurance makes sense.

If you purchased your rMBP with a credit card, check with the issuer of the credit card. American Express for example extends the warranty on items purchased with their credit card and that includes accidental damage.
