So does the 16.5 and 19k reflect just tuition or is that the total for all the fees schools describe (e.g. books, transportation, fees, cost of living, etc.)?
I want to know the answer to this question, too.
Although, that price tag is still acceptable IMO. I am CA resident, and in-state tuition at California schools such as Davis hovers around 30K.
All of the information I can find just describes the total amount (e.g. 2010-2011 tuition $16,386 instate and $35,751.30 out of state). I can't find anything concerning the breakdown of this amount. I have a feeling this is intentional. I say this because when I attended the Road Map Seminar my tour guide said tuition for him was around 12 grand. He also says it varies from person to person due to the credits you take and whatnot.
There is a big difference between 12 and 16 grand for instate tuition and regardless I think it is a pretty acceptable price tag; however, I really feel like those numbers are the totals including all the fees and stuff that some people might not need (i.e. that number does not represent the cost for tuition alone).
If anyone knows for sure/can verify it would be much appreciated....
