Are absolutely exorbitant.
I want nothing more than to attend the Art Institute International MN, but they charge $70,680 for a four year program; that's roughly $17,667 per year.
I can't afford this, as I don't come from a privileged background, my family scrapes by weekly, so how am I to afford FUCKING college? I could get a shitty minimum wage job that pays $6.65 per hour, but even if I worked 30 hours per week for 50 weeks a year, that's only $9,975 BEFORE taxes.
So lets say I dedicate each and every penny to school, $17,667 - $9500(after taxes approximation) = $8167.
Meaning I accrue $8167 of debt per year for four years, which is still $32668 in debt when I graduate.
That's a fucking ludicrous amount of money, I don't want to be paying off my debt into my late 30's either.
Scholarships? Oh boy; maybe I can knock off a couple 1000 dollars if I'm lucky.
They need to have better funding for low income families to go to college. At this point my future looks pretty bleak.
