This combination of more selective admissions and higher tuition prices can cause much anxiety for high school students and their families. For many of those who are accepted by a college or university, alternate ways to pay are out there. Although in years past, a summer job, a little help from the parents, and maybe a small loan have been enough to cover costs, that is no longer the case.
I think this will be a fundamental question I will have to deal with. When does cost exceed the value of the education given? While I hope to save enough to attend any college I want, I would also like to leave college with some savings still intact. I will have to think about this more later...right now it's time for my nap
