Yeah. Public universities are a little more reasonable but the tuition fees have been going up a lot, at least for the ones in California. I think University of California schools are around $12,000 to $15,000 now? Not sure. It's expensive to go to school. >.>

Holy crap. I don't even... wow.
I think it's more to do with prestige these days. "I went to Harvard" and all that pretentious crap. It's all printed out of a xerox printer, that piece of paper. Seriously.

We should go with what Europe got, free education.

I do. :p
My tuition was 6,600 this semester, so 13,200 a year.
I have a lottery scholarship, gvt. grant, and an academic performance scholarship where I have to work 75hrs a semester for college moneys.

You will always be my best friend, .

Well that's good :) At least you can affford it!!(yay)
It's near impossibru to get grants and scholarships around these parts. So backwards and ignorant. It would be more work for me to apply for a scholarship now because I applied when I was 21. Most of the scholarships go to high school students and people with disabilities.
I love being a student though. HATE dealing with loans. Mine will be another week coming in because instead of calling me to clear stuff up on Sept 5 and 6 they decided to wait until today to email me (after I emailed them first) to tell me there has been a problem with my "year of study" on the dfvjbwlyub q application. I know what I put down on the application because I never been a fourth year before. Jeez Louise.

Oh, sorry for being unclear! People around here don't specify between the two much, so I'm used to not paying attention. I go to East Tennessee State University.

Edit: If it wasn't for the state scholarships and my grades, there'd be no way I could go. I think our "education" system is ridiculous!

You will always be my best friend, .
