How much was your college tuition? And if you got loans, how long did it take you to pay them off, or rather, how long has it been since you've owed them?

Scholarships are a godsend.

Wow, and I thought it was bad in the UK - £9500 tuition per year, plus an average of £120 a week for your dorm room.

Fortunately for me the prices were only hiked up a couple of years ago, so I get a grant to cover me much smaller fees, but I feel so sorry for people who're looking at going to uni now

They are taking education away from people I feel

American here and I'm paying double this
User avatar #59 to #53 - midgetyjoker (09/17/2013) [-]
Are you in England, by any chance? In scotland we have SAAS to cover tuition :/ it's unfair the amount anyone anywhere has to pay to get a decent education...
User avatar #61 - kaosminett (09/17/2013) [-]
My tuition was 1180, books were about 900 or so. Only need the 1 year to get a career out of it. a career that makes way too much money for the job i do

By the time I graduate, my total tuition will be around $82,000. When I was applying during senior year of high school, I told my parents that I didn't have to go to a university and could start at community (because of how much it would cost), but I was accepted into the honors program at a great university, so I went there. My parents paid for most of my first two years, but I will be paying for most of the rest.

And then grad school after that...

Dude, it's called community college.
No one is forcing you to go to a private school.
The government would actually give you money if you come from a poor family to go to school. I'm going to CUNY next year, and it'll be completely free for me. (Except for the housing)
#52 - brainy (09/17/2013) [-]
Education in Denmark. 0 $
Living in a dorm 430$ a month.
Aid from government for going to school 1000$ a month.

570$ each month for everything else. Where is your freedom now America.
#54 to #52 - anon (09/17/2013) [-]
In the money I don't have to pay in taxes...
#55 to #54 - brainy (09/17/2013) [-]
Im sorry, cant hear you over my ******* free health care.

I dont understand the argument with 'no taxes'.

I would rather have free health care and free education than paying no taxes, forcing me to save alot of money for my kids to go to college.
#51 - anon (09/17/2013) [-]
Funny. You can learn in a library what you can learn in school. Except in after school you get a worthless piece of paper saying you read and wrote some **** and passed. And then you work somewhere that is not in your profession. Unless you are a Free-Mason. Then, you're ****** .

User avatar #37 to #36 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
$7,000? For how long?
User avatar #39 to #37 - itemexchange (09/17/2013) [-]
that is room/meals and really its not a bad price if thats all i got to pay ill be fine through college
User avatar #38 to #37 - itemexchange (09/17/2013) [-]
thats for the whole year....if i stay another year its the same price
i dont plan on staying on campus all 4 years tho
User avatar #40 to #38 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Ah, that's not too bad, then. Your own room, or shared?
User avatar #41 to #40 - itemexchange (09/17/2013) [-]
shared
i picked the room with its own bathroom tho and thats shared between 2 rooms so 4 people share the bathroom ...i wouldnt mind if the other people werent always in there and didnt make a mess...the floors covered in hair WTF
its not a big room and the way we set it up most space is taken but i like it
User avatar #42 to #41 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, it's a nice experience for meeting people which you'll grow to hate.
User avatar #43 to #42 - itemexchange (09/17/2013) [-]
lol i ignore the side people and treat it like a public bathroom its whatever
my roomates fine isnt annoying or anything
and its quieter than my real house and im much happyer here
all in all its been nice
User avatar #44 to #43 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Good, what are you in for?
User avatar #45 to #44 - itemexchange (09/17/2013) [-]
first year so you never know what could happen
but the plan is computer science
what im thinking is if worse comes to worse and i give up on computer science ill still have all the science credits i can transfer over to forensics
then i didnt waste time or money on extra classes and still get an outcome i want
User avatar #46 to #45 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
That's good. Computer science is a pretty broad study.
User avatar #47 to #46 - itemexchange (09/17/2013) [-]
thats why i like it
im really into computers but never been to dedicated into it in my own time
a small program here a design class there little things taht make me only above average.
i feel this takes something i like but leaves me with many opportunities
User avatar #7 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Yeah, I know what you mean.

I'm currently going through the entire school year with a total budget of $650

Last year, I had a bursary scholarship, and that helped out beyond belief. Unfortunately, my mother decided to get a second job (no, not at ******* subway or something like that, we're talking insurance work) and that means I don't get a cent from them because she made too much money.
User avatar #11 to #7 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Cent from your parents or from financial aid?
User avatar #13 to #11 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Nnnnnope. None from parents, and again, no financial aid because my mother got a second job.
User avatar #15 to #13 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
My mom didn't want me to say I lived with her, as she thought it would ruin my case, but we're poor so that didn't make sense.

The options to say I lived at home required to say I was abused or something, and I'm a terrible liar, anyway. Kinda silly that if your parents make a lot of money, they're expected to pay for you.
User avatar #17 to #15 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Yeah, agreed. I know the feeling. It's just a staggering amount of money.
User avatar #19 to #17 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
It really is. I mean, it's insane that you pay tens of thousands of dollars, but you never see a penny of it, but you pay them for it.
User avatar #21 to #19 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
I honestly try not to look at it all at once, it's almost panic inducing. In addition to that, I fell down some stairs and got a concussion, so I lost a good chunk of my year, so that's a whole other year of tuition down the drain, too.
User avatar #23 to #21 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
That's extremely unfortunately. I recently got the bill for my next semester, and we were a bit worried to see if were could deal with it. If my financial aid didn't work, there'd be no way for us to come up with $4,000. My mom has health issues, and noone is employed right now.

School is a bit of the positive future I have.
User avatar #24 to #23 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, it's a good bit cheaper than mine, at least. I'm at $7,500 per year
User avatar #26 to #24 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
It's not $4,000 for the year. That's the amount the loans from last year didn't cover. If you look at the picture, it appears to be $12,000 a year.
User avatar #27 to #26 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Aaaah, I see. Damn, I got off lighter.
User avatar #28 to #27 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
It's sort of like, "It's not really my money out of pocket, so it doesn't matter", but I hear nothing but horror stories from people still paying their student loans.
User avatar #29 to #28 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Yeah, I know. Thank god that I was getting bursaries, not loans.
User avatar #30 to #29 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
It's probably better to be in debt from your education than something else. Without this degree, I'm probably doomed to manual labor or call centers.
User avatar #31 to #30 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
I know what you mean.
User avatar #32 to #31 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
This is the type of thing where I hope this degree makes me financially stable, so I can put money back, like those shows and commercials always tell you. I want my kids to be able to go to school without worrying or owing anything.

User avatar #33 to #32 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Completely agree there.
User avatar #34 to #33 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, thanks for the conversation, ya deep blue bastard. Unlike that other guy.
User avatar #35 to #34 - LaBarata (09/17/2013) [-]
Cheers.
User avatar #3 - lordscooby (09/17/2013) [-]
i can't stand the thought of getting a loan.
User avatar #4 to #3 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
I know what you mean, but considering I was an adult living at home doing literally nothing, I had to do something. There was no way my parents were going to be able to put in anything.

Basically, I'm going to be in debt as soon as I come out, but I'll be doing something i love hopefully. Scholarships soften the blow, and so do grants.
#1 - anon (09/17/2013) [-]
Thats 4 years, yes it is expensive but good programs will let you earn it back from having a good job
User avatar #2 to #1 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Full Sail actually only takes 2.6 years to complete. The 4 years thing means, as stated, 4 academic years.
User avatar #5 to #2 - ihateallofyoualot **User deleted account** (09/17/2013) [-]
its a for-profit school, might not be the best academic decision
User avatar #6 to #5 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Best for me at the time. When I went to my local college, which was Ohio State University, and asked if they had anything similar to game or visual design, she said the closest she had was designing pamphlets.
User avatar #8 to #6 - ihateallofyoualot **User deleted account** (09/17/2013) [-]
a fellow ohioian, look into shawnee state university they have a game design program and its in ohio. Its close to the cost of Columbus State maybe a little more but tis cheap
User avatar #9 to #8 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
I don't live in Ohio anymore, and not to mention, I'm pretty deep into Full Sail, now. Almost to my 2nd year. I must mention I'm taking this online.
User avatar #10 to #9 - ihateallofyoualot **User deleted account** (09/17/2013) [-]
you're paying that much tuition for online?
User avatar #12 to #10 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Yup.
#14 to #12 - ihateallofyoualot **User deleted account** (09/17/2013) [-]
what kind of degree are you going to be getting?
User avatar #16 to #14 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Bachelor's.
#18 to #16 - ihateallofyoualot **User deleted account** (09/17/2013) [-]
User avatar #20 to #18 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
Perhaps if I were a child, but I did do my research before enrolling. I know what I've gotten myself into and what is expected. I'd have to be completely gullible to let an article make a decision on my life.
User avatar #22 to #20 - ihateallofyoualot **User deleted account** (09/17/2013) [-]
It was the first credible article I found, there was quite a few. Why are you so okay with paying so much? nothing that I have found about the place is positive. didn't know much bout the place so I did some research
User avatar #25 to #22 - flammablefetus (09/17/2013) [-]
I'm not doubting your intelligence, much, but if you think you can completely judge the value of something by looking it up on the internet, then you'll find yourself constantly fooled.

Who said I was okay with paying so much? The entirety of college tuition is a scam. Why are people who are wanting to advanced their selves charged so much, especially when the cost are wholly flawed. $500 for a book you use one chapter of?
