College Tuition and Birth Control

January 20, 2007

Oh man.. this has to be one of the best headlines I’ve read in a while:

TuitionCoach: Tuition Planning Site Is Good Birth Control

I must admit there is some truth to this headline. I read somewhere that you need to save roughly $10,000 per year, per child to cover college expenses! That’s just nutty and totally crazy! What happened to the day of relying on scholarships and financial aid? Public Grants? From what I hear, competition is getting quite fierce and these approaches are going “the way of the Dodo”.

But to make things worst, even though I didn’t go to an Ivy League school, I can’t help but wonder if my own child may aspire to attend one of these schools. What am I to do, if he applies, gets accepted but can’t afford the tuition? Tough Luck to the little one? Easier said than done..
