Brother, can you spare a dime? :( They say I'm too 'rich' for student aid, then why does tuition make me so poor?

Why does tuition go up five times faster than inflation?

Why do you make such trivial threads, and so often? It's a little trying. "No offence."

You mean, you have to pay " Dennis' ". :p You don't add an extra "s", you just put a ' . That's what I learned in school, anyway. :p

It's correct either way, because 'Dennis' naturally ends in an 's', even without it being plural. You were probably just taught a different convention.

Meh, effort. :p

By cheap I mean 12-17p. Still cheap, and good enough as a meal.

"We don't need no education"... :D I just paid off my own fee, so we're pretty much in the same boat. I'm not complaining though, I don't eat much or like to shop.

I was meant to go to uni in 2 and a half years time but thanks to the rise in money I will not be going at all.

So this has changed my direction completely. :(

The rise in money hasnt changed my decision :S it should come into effect in my second year at uni. I'll just take our a student loan or something? There are some family savings too

I follow Strunk's guidance. (http://www.bartleby.com/141/strunk.html) Lynch (http://andromeda.rutgers.edu/~jlynch/Writing/p.html) is not in disagreement with him.

You just need to take out a student loan, and you won't pay it back unless you earn a certain amount in a job. If you don't have a job, you won't be paying it back and in 25 years after getting the loan it'll be written off even if you haven't fully paid the amount back.

Besides the government aren't forcing the uni's to rise the tuition fees, they're permitting them, afaik.

So...

always write on student aid/financial aid forms that niether you nor your family are going to be using any personal money for your education; they give you more.

at least, on my forms it asks how much anticipated funding will come from family or personal money, and i always put $0.
--------------
my (community college) school costs (without books) for Spring Semester is $3440. its about 14 Credit hours, room and board in the dorms (Meal plan included in the dorms here). so it should be about 4K with books. ive been able to reuse a couple books over 2 years, so i was able to save money that didnt go towards books.

but we have to pay before school starts, is it not like that for universities?

Take your arrogance someplace else. You are not who determines what is 'trivial'.

this thread actually has some decent point of being here; unlike the "LOL catZ in Sinkz", or the "Why is Mr. Krabs Daughter a Whale?" threads.

If one other person likes a thread it has a purpose. If you don't like what's in it then leave, if you don't agree, then put a point across and get some discourse going.

Seems simple to me.

Tuition fees are one of the main talking points here in the UK at the moment. I'm glad i finished my degree this year to avoid the possible hike in prices, but due to failing the year i'm worried as to how, if i wish to resit the final year in future, how much it will cost.

Yes, Uni is always pay up front. It is smart to go to community college first. What is your major?

The English are really getting whacked too. How much does it cost to go to Uni in England?

I don't do uni. I sincerely doubt that it's going to get me anywhere in life, rendering it a waste of time and money.

Im double majoring in Secondary Education; adn hopefully in Russian or Japanese, with a minor in something related to either language (like history or politics or something).

I plan to become a High School Foreign Language teaccher, as its a field that is in high demeand, adn i think american students need more culturalizing. Ive always wanted to be a teacher, and i ve alsway wanted to learn several languages, so i decided to combine the two adn make it my carerr choice :D

maybe after 10-15 years of high school teaching, i'll teach at a community college, so that i can swear and talk about whatever adn not get in trouble :p :pi:

Sounds like an exciting goal. You can also travel the world, teaching English and making very good money.

At the moment, just over 3,000 a year on tuition fees, then another 4,000 on living costs etc.

So that's roughly 21,000 for a three year degree... and that's the lower end figures. Some people have to pay out a lot more for living costs, books etc.

After the reforms come in... roughly 9,000 a year in tuition fees, then the same on living costs.

That'll be over 39,000 for a three year degree, and again, low end figures for living costs and books, depending on whereabouts you have to live and what course you're doing for the books.

A friend of mine looked into that lol :p He thought he was a Scottist citizen because he was born there - but you have to have lived there for 3 years to be entitled to apply for uni
