Is a $200,000 difference worth it?
College Comparison – Is a $200,000 difference worth it?
College is expensive…But, the true cost is not just tuition. Families should look at all expenses including room, meals, books, fees, and travel. The picture below shows a comparison for two New York schools.
The cost of a school should also be looked at over four years, not just for one year. The numbers are large. Yes, some schools do offer scholarships but these figures are the rates posted on each school’s website.
Be prepared to pay those prices! Not everyone gets a scholarship.
