I'm Asking: How Much Was Your College Tuition?

I'm Asking: How Much Was Your College Tuition?

Many of the Gossip Girl cast will begin the next chapter of their lives as freshmen at NYU next week, and I can't wait to see what happens when the drama goes to college. If they were really attending the university, it would cost $52,000 a year in tuition and room and board. Approximately how much was (or is) your college tuition?

$53K for room and board at Cornell. Thankfully they paid for 95% of it. Yay for being poor and smart.

Geez! $52,000?My first year was about $3500 for tuition alone (I live at home), but I had a scholarship that covered the first four years. After the first year, the cost kept steadily climbing. I didn't have to take out any loans until 08-09, and my cost was about $7000. This is my last semester and it's about $4500 for this alone.

FinnLover, I also went to school in Quebec. Not only is our tuition super cheap compared to the US (2000$/year), my bachelor's degree was only 3 years. So I only had to pay 3 years worth of tuition instead of the usual 4.My husband also went to university in Quebec, but, since he is American, he paid international fees which were about 12 000$/year. This was still cheaper than the in-state rate at the University of Vermont.

Canadian schools are highly subsidized for those in-province (all universities are public) and my first year was $3000 and it was $3800 when I graduated four years later.I lived at home so I didn't need to worry about room and board.

I just looked it up and the current cost is actually closer to $40,000 a year, so maybe it was closer to $35,000 when I went there. I'm not really 100% sure, though.

I went to university in Québec and it was about $1000 / semester for tuition. I live in Europe now and if I wanted to go to university here, it would be free.

I went to UW-Madison as an in-state student, so I only has to pay about $6K per year and I finished in 4 years. I had a $1,000/semester scholarship that helped out a lot, but the rest was student loans and my parents helping a little bit where they could. They never saved any money for our tuition; they wanted us to pay our own way through college so we'd appreciate it more or something.

right now I'm in the university of Victoria (in BC, Canada) and with room and board, its about 19k/year. so by the time i finish my degree in the next 2 years, it'll be just under 60,000$ gross.

@havok636 Hook 'em Horns! Don't you mean 4k/semester? I'm in the school of communications at the University of Texas and I'm paying 4500/semester, or 9k/year and 36k total.

I think it was about $28k, but I have to honestly admit I don't even know since my dad was kind enough to pay for everything - having planned for his entire life to pay for all of his kids to go to private school and then any college of their choice. I do feel good that I was able to receive a $5k annual scholarship to ease the burden a bit, but yeah, it was a LOT. I can only hope to be able to do half of that for my kids someday.

Fordham's tuition plus room and board was about $40,000 per year. However, I had a four year grant that totaled $90,000, so that pretty much covered tuition, thank goodness! Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to afford it!
