View Full Version : Universities
i want some advice on how much do you need each year to study in america.
Just give a guess would be good enough..
I have thought about utah, mainly bacause it is chaep. I heard that we need half a million HKjust to pay the universities in america each year, excluding other expenses, that is way too expensive.:(
i am not rich, and i still got a little bro who just started primary school, so i don't want my parents to spend all the money on me, and leave my little bro behind, and since i suck at school already.
Baasically i only want to know what expenses are not avoidable in america and how much do they make up.
If it pass 1/2 million HK each year i think i might go to new zealand or stay in HK instead..

I think a rough average would be in the $20,000 US range. Some are cheaper, some are much, much more. But hurry, because they raise the price every year it seems.
Which isn't the point, really. The point is you'll have a much better ping to the game servers ;) and that's worth lots of money.

Unless you go to a community college (and maybe even if you go there) you are going to be paying out-of-state rates. This means almost anywhere you go, you can expect your first year to cost you $25,000-30,000 US. But, this'll only be for the first year; after that you can establish residency and pay local rates. I had no clue out-of-staters paid so much more until a friend told me he's paying something like $27,000 here at berkeley..the rest of us get off at $15k. hehe. Other schools' local rates vary widely between $10k all the way up to $35k..just research the school ahead of time.
If you want to go the economical route, goto a community college for your first two years (basically get your major prerequisites or lower division courses out of the way)..or maybe it'll only take you one year. Then transfer to your intended school for the last 2 years of your major. Community colleges are WAY cheaper. And they're everywhere. Hope this helps a bit.. :)

You guys are nuts, 20,000 is way to much. B.C. you can get away with 10 to 15,000 if you play your cards right but never have to pay 25,000 damn rich people. Who do you think we are Bill Gates

I got four years (accelerated - 2.75 years) for $41,000 U.S.
Factor in living expenses (housing/transportation/FOOD)
and the cost will go much, much higher..........

Sorry bout the high quotes, but that's a fact, not an option if you're going to a non-community college university and you're out of state. Luckily that high cost lasts one year only. And you can probably avoid it if you do some CC stuff first (good way to get adjusted to living/working on your own too).
