Expected COA Greater than 100K!!???!!

Postby jas5076 » Fri Aug 13, 2010 1:40 pm

Seriously how long before the first school hits the 100 K a year mark including living expenses? What school do you think it will be? My guess is ten years and it will be columbia or boalt

Considering tuition tends to increase at a rate of about 5-10% annually at many schools and schools are already upwards of 70k with ~42-49k of that tuition and 22-25k being cost of living/fees.. 10 years is a good conservative estimate.

Using Columbia as an example, with current tuition of 48648 and 9 month living expenses of 21,699, if tuition increases at an avg. rate of 5% in 10 years tuition alone would be $79,242. If 9-month Living expenses stayed flat that would put COA around 101k.

Pft. Take on all the loans you want. Car. Pad. The works. When you get your JD it's the gravy train and you'll single-handedly pull California out of the recession.
