Anyone wanna loan me $26,660? Really I’ll put it to good use.
That’s what it will cost me to pursue finishing my degree (that’s for 20 classes including books, cause I already have two years completed). At the end I’d get a big ole diploma saying Bachelors of Science in Communications. Thrilling eh?
When did school get so darn expensive?? And these are online classes through University of Phoenix. Believe it or not this is the cheap school. Granted, I shelled out about $20,000 for one year at the former Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science (long name so now it’s Philadelphia University). That was room and board too. Oh, but not books, or fees or any of that other stuff. That was in 1995. I do not even want to know what they charge for a current years tuition. Thank goodness I got a partial scholarship or I’d have been going to, well who knows where. Maybe Clown College?
I am going to probably have a heart attack when Boo walks up in about 11 years and says he wants to go to Harvard or Yale or Boston University (just pulling out some names cause you know my kid’s a genius and all 🙂 I’ll have a heart attack on the spot when I see the cost no doubt. When did trying to get an education so you can get a good job (and lets not forget how great that economy is doing these days) become so expensive?
Have I been out of the college loop too long? The last class I took was in 1999 (I did night classes after bankrupting myself that first year). At one point I worked two part time jobs and went to school. Then I worked one full time job and went to night school. And I could still barely afford it.
How do all of you manage college? Have you put aside money for you or your kids?
And this has nothing to do with this post BUT go visit Kat over at Sunshineandlemonade for some awesome Disney Tips! I can hardly wait to go. Two more months!
