This is just about the ONLY reason I've tolerated dear hubby's 8.5 year PhD and still haven't left him after 4 years and counting of post-doc with STILL no job... because one day he WILL get a job, and that job will come with FREE TUITION for the youngin'. :) Sorta makes it worth the poverty level wages, I 'spose. LOL.

Hey--there's always scholarships! ;)

This country is cr-ac-ked out.

If I have children I will home school them.

That is to say, Google will school them into adulthood.

And if they end up only qualified to give Moon tours, so be it.

There's dignity in all sorts of work.

Education is SO over-rated.

And to think I was breaking a sweat at the 100K we will have kicked into her education (not including daycare) by the time she hits middle school). Off the the wooden barrel store to buy my fall clothing.

Try this mathmatical equation......an $11,000 deferred student loan will cost $33,832 when paid off in total if payments begin in January of 2010. That 11,000 goes toward this years fees only! I think we need a new strategy for financing the sheepskin. Maybe we should buy the whole sheep.....or sell a kidney...or plasma....there must be an easier way to finance an education.

I have a hard time imagining that most people will be able to pony up that kinda dosh. Take heart in knowing that at any spiffydiffy private school, the student body contains both the rich kids & the scholarship kids. Even private colleges recognize that sometimes the deserving don't have the cash. That's what endowments are for.

Think "state university" a bargin and good education to boot. You just have to live in the same state as the state university you want to go to.

Dear Sweet Jesus - your post made my heart stop. $80,000?? That dream of my yet-unborn daughters going to Smith just died a sad sad death.
