Cost of Living

After yesterday's cost of living activity, what have you realized about how much money you are going to need in order to go to college? Where are you planning on getting the money to live and go to college?

  3. I learned that college living is really expensive and that the best way to pay for things will be lots of scholarships and working. I plan to apply to as many scholarships as i can and get as much family help as possible.

  12. I realized that everything these days are extremely expensive and i rather live at my parents house so a lot of those costs are minimized. If i stay local i would save a lot of money as well as having college tried to be paid for by scholarships,

  13. Originally I was going to attend Nova University, I knew it was expensive, what college/university isn't? After applying and getting accepted they sent me my financial aid information and told me how much the university was going to give me a year. I ended up getting 19,000 dollars a year, I was elated, however, Nova's tuition alone is approximately 22,000 dollars a year. I thought to myself, well, I would be paying about 3,000 out of pocket, per semester, that's not so bad. However, the tuition did not include dorms or even a meal plan. The dorms including the meal plan would equal about 31,000 dollars a year so, I would really end up paying 12,000 dollars a year out of pocket. After yesterdays activity I realized college was way more expensive then I initially thought because originally I hadn't considered those other expenditures; I would be broke and and have to take out loans probably. So, in the end my family decided I should start off at BC then transfer to Nova. Now, I have a better understanding of college finances and I have a better appreciation for the money I have now.

  15. i realized that college life and living on your own is very expensive and costly as it costs an arm and a leg. With that said i would have to rely on loans and getting a job to support my needs.
