Could someone post it? I believe it was in the fin aid letter and was around 80,000 flat
Estimated COA is ~$79,000 give or take a couple hundred. I don't remember the exact number.
Exact number was 79,500
Every time I see this, I get really sad.
Yeah, quite a large number.... Assume at least a 3% increase every year, or ~82,000 year 2, and ~84,500 year 3. Of course a 2L SA helps mitigate some of the loans, and as I said a few pages back, if you're semi-frugal, you certainly won't be using the entire loan budget either. Also, if your parents have health insurance (and you're still eligible to be covered by it), then that can save you an additional 2k a year.
