One of the issues we have in America these days is the skyrocketing costs of higher education, so the question is. What school did you go to? And how long ago was it? Also, how much did it cost you. I went to Florida State University starting in 1999 and graduated in 2003. When it came to tuition costs, room and board and blah blah. It roughly came out to around 32,000 dollars when it was all said and done. First year I lived on campus, the other 3 years I lived in my own apartment. Because it was cheaper. So, 32,000 sounds like quite a bit for 4 years. Costs today at FSU http://admissions.fsu.edu/freshman/finances/costs.cfm Holy crap, roughly 20,000 dollars for in state students, and 32,000 dollars just for one year. Wow.
