I’ve come up with some things that students should definitely consider prior to committing to a college. For example:
For example, if you want to attend Columbia University, the annual estimated tuition fee is approximately $57,708. Times that by 4 years, and you’re at about $230,832.
That doesn’t factor in the cost of living, how much you will spend on food and travel, etc. Also, if you have to take out loans like many college students, the interest rates will be factoring in year by year, making your overall repayment cost a lot more expensive than the amount you originally took out. Have I scared you enough? Just kidding.
Did you know?
Getting good grades in high school can give you a greater chance of obtaining grants and/or scholarships. If you choose to go to an in-state institution, there are state-based programs, like Florida Bright Future scholarships. If you meet the particular GPA and SAT/ACT requirements (that vary based on the state), you get to obtain scholarships for college.
