Response to wilt the stilt (Reply #2)

7. The actual cost with meal plan is about $10K

in my state. I do feel uncomfortable with schools requiring freshman to live on campus but realistically except for commuter students coming from home the cost variance is probably not that great (consider apartment rentals next to campus). One area that I think they should consider is the meal plan - that is an area in which students could save money especially smaller ones (my daughter is small and eats like a bird). The dorms at the college she is leaning towards are all you can eat, and the food is top notch. I want her in the dorm closest to the engineering building. The time savings can make a difference in her academics (and free her up to work more).
