Paying for College

If you're planning to go to college, how are you planning to pay for it?
The bad news:  Tuition at the average public university in the U.S. would set you back about $8,200 a year.   The good news:  Fewer than half of all public university students actually pay that, according to government surveys.  Scholarships, grants, and financial aid are three things that help students out. 

Family savings, work/study programs, and student loans also factor in to getting a higher education.

Using your first name only, please let us know what you're doing to prepare for the cost of college,
if you're planning to go.
