And I spent it touring another college. Starting to get tired of it. But that was the last one!!

BTW - it was Washington College - for those nearby. BEAUTIFUL campus and a really nice school. I just have a hard time getting around the price tag - $40,000. Yikes. But we will see if she even gets in - they are very selective. Perhaps I can actually start to enjoy days off now.

I recently read somewhere that the higher-priced schools end up being cheaper for the top students, because they offer more financial aid than the lower-priced schools. I guess (although the article didn't say so) it's because there's more competition at lower-priced schools where the population is larger. At more selective schools, fewer students get in, so fewer will require financial aid.

That's true Chrystal. Also - the smaller schools are private. They have more money to give out too than a state school or university. Clearly, that's the only way she's getting to go to that school. Unless someone has an extra $40,000 laying around we can borrow.
