How Much Does College Cost?

Where you attend college and what you will study are two of the biggest decision you will ever make.  These decisions could greatly impact your life and your future.  While there are many things that will impact this decision, the cost of college is most often at the forefront.  The cost of college needs to be a balance; since it is an investment in your future, spending $20,000 or $30,000 on a four-year degree is not that unreasonable.  You need a good education from a respectable school in order to launch your career in the field of your choice.  However, if you choose a career that will earn you less than$50,000 annually, choosing a school that costs $30,000 per year is probably not a good idea.  Get a general idea of what you want to do in life, and choose a college that is as well-known and respected as you can for the price you are willing to pay.
