So recently ive been looking into further education.. just finished my college course and going to look into getting into UNI... but i had a thaught braught to me by Beast...

why dont i look at universities over in the U.S?.... well i was looking to find one... and i did.. University of Northwest Ohio..

sent them a nice email saying " hello, how much is all the college fees?" and saying im english, done a course and blady blah blah.

got a reply a few hours ago, woman called Deb emailed me back with the costs...

    Can guarantee you'll find a suitable multimeter for educational purposes (ie fuck surgical accuracy) for less than $288 USD.

    Also, you're in England. Go to Oxford =P

    Also keep in mind that International student fees EVERYWHERE are pure fleecing bitches. Although if they provide a student VISA.. I suppose 30k isn't all that horrible.

    Beast has a British Airways voucher if that helps =P

    Welcome to America. "Land of the free, home of the brave, and center of ridiculously steep college tuition prices with dumb ways of paying for them." They usually tend to keep that last part out though. I know for me personally my school costs about $50,000 USD per year tuition and fees, though I was quite fortunate to receive a lot of scholarships and aid that I will not have to pay back, around $35,000-$38,000 USD. I will still have a hefty amount of student loans to face when I graduate, but I am hoping that my education, mixed with the school I am going to, and the alumni relation network that we have that I will be able to land an okay job. However, the cost for attending school in America is terrifying for an American citizen. I could not even imagine being in your shoes coming over here. Heck, most of us try to travel abroad once we start college here anyways.

    College is a business. One that loves to monopolize on students' interest and money.
