Apply for federal aid. The school I went to was about 50k a year, but I ended up actually paying closer to 10k.

Good news! Most of the rich kids that buy their way through Harvard can't pass the bar exams, so most high end law schools are being forced to lower tuition.

That's why I ******* love socialist Sweden. Oh how much does it cost to educate yourself further in a university? NOTHING. You pay for your living costs, and your textbooks, that's it, and to do so, you get a loan from the government that is partially a loan (which you have to pay back) as well as some free money as to make sure you can live a life of reasonable quality while finishing your studies, without getting drowned in debt when you're finally out.



**** YEAH SOCIALISTIC CAPITALISM

Yes you do. Taxes. Nothing is free.

You're right, saying it's free was the wrong word. I, obviously, meant that it has no fee.

Taxes really aren't that high though, if you compare the average net gain from working with what you get in return. After student loans and taxes, you still haven't come close to paying what you pay for a college in the US for example. Our income tax is 30%, and that includes all the basic stuff like roads, schools etc, as well as an amazing health care system that has fee roofs in which you only have to spend something like ~$200-300 per year at all, after the point of last fee everything becomes free from fees, including medicine.

Even as a student at $1000 per month, ~3-500 of which goes to rent, the rest of it is enough to survive quite nicely on. It's a good country in general, I'd say, except for our high youth-unemployment rates currently (~25%).

If it works for your country then that's great. Over here we have way too much waste and corruption to pull anything like that off. Only about 30% of ever tax dollar ends up going to the end user. The rest is spent on magical fairy princessistration.

I personally prefer to keep my money and make my own choices with it, but I'm not going to rip on something for not thinking like me. Our problem is that the government involvement with financial aid allows colleges to raise their rates. Colleges take advantage of Federal Student Aid and raise their prices to rake more of it in. Others will raise their prices only to make it seem like they're giving you a great deal by cutting your tuition in half.

But the problem isn't that bad everywhere. For example, most Ivy League schools will adjust your tuition to be 10% of your family's gross income.

US Colleges/Universities fees are so wrong. Here in Europe i pay less than 1000€/per year to go to one of the highest ranked universities in the world. Not to start a eurofag-amerifag war, but education is the most important asset for a successful economy/society. Making it so expensive is the stupidest **** a government can do imo

Yeah man, seems pretty retarded that the UK government has put the fees up to £9000 a year, I'm lucky I managed to get in when they were £3000

That isn't so bad. Are you finished with school or still in? I would expect any job you get with a college degree should pay at least $30,000 a year. So unless you can't find one after college you should be fine.
