Why is college so expensive nowadays? #Spring23

For example, Appalachian State University is 23k and change, but GTCC is only 2 grand at max for a four-year education. I understand the latter is more geared toward two-year degrees, but both are in-state and both are colleges. Do the demographics in recent years matter in the equation of cost, or is it simply size and convenience? #Spring23

Should I attend Northeastern University or a cheaper state school?

For context, my parents are insistent that I go to Northeastern University, as they're obsessed with acceptance rates. It's 34,000 without federal loans, which is quite outrageous as we are broke. They're insistent that they are able to afford it yet even if were not, I'd rather not spend that much money on a equation when I can get an education anywhere. My parents are convinced that somehow I'll end up more successful just because I go to a school with a lower acceptance rate. We still have a mortgage and my sisters college expenses. How do I convince them that I don't want to pay 34,000 for college?

How can I manage my time?

What is the best way to manage your time? I am a student athlete and I play 2 high school and 2 club sports. I currently have a 3.6 gpa which is good but I feel stressed all of the time during the sports season because I feel like I never have time to study or get homework done. I am also a very social person so on top of all of that I want to spend time with my friends outside of sports and school. How can I manage my time better?

What does it take to double major?

Hi, I am currently a sophomore high school student that is also minoring in psychology and will be earning my associates in 2025-2026. I am looking to double major in psychology and sociology. I'm not the greatest in statistics or maths so I am comprehending whether or not I should double major in psychology or just stick with sociology. Starting my associates has shined a light on how demanding (time-wise) college coursework can be. I deal with mental health problems like Bipolar disorder, and other issues that make it hard to stay on track sometimes, and can easily lead to burnout. When it comes to work, I always have the habit of prioritizing work first, and then my mental health (this has been something I've been working on recently). With a double major, I understand that I will possibly have less time to do certain things, like working, which would put me into a deep hole of financial instability. And there is the possibility of my mind and body giving out. If I do decide to double major, is there anything I can do to lessen the rate of these risks? If you have double majored, can you tell me a bit how you schedule things like working, and time for yourself?
