College 18 Years From Now…

College in 18 years

In 18 years, the average sticker price for a private university could be as much as $130,428 a year (See chart.) The situation isn’t much better if you go the public route. Sending your child to a state university could set you back at least $41,228 a year.

Seems unreal. But…

I remember looking at one of my old spreadsheets from the early 2000s where I used $13,000 as the cost of one year at the University of Texas. It’s now around $25,000 a year. Unbelievable.

Maybe it might be wise to consider some college alternatives.

    Thanks for the mention (again). Those future cost figures are staggering.

    Also, great to see you’re reading James Altucher, too. I started following him a couple of months ago and really enjoy his writing.

    And I thought this recent Mark Cuban post on higher education was good as well:

    Hope you and your family have a great Memorial Day weekend.

    You too, Russ. I promise to always give credit where credit is due.
