What is the best way to find merit-based scholarships?

I am thinking of going out of state for college because I like the architecture program set up at Virginia Tech, compared to in-state schools. I fall outside of the financial aid category for college but out-of-state tuition is still costly and I would like to know where to find more merit-based scholarships to help offset the cost of out-of-state tuition.

Should I be saving the money I earn for college?

I'm an upcoming junior in high school and I work a minimum wage job. It's more of a part-time job or internship, but I've been saving most of my paycheck for college because I'm almost terrified of not having enough money to pay for it. I've been stressing over finances and scholarships and I haven't even started my junior year in high school. But a part of me wants to save the money just in case I need it when I'm older, although there's another part of me that just wants to be a kid and spend most of my paycheck on things I like.

With a business degree, how influential is the name on your diploma in the interview process?

On average, college tuition has more than doubled in the last 20 years. Many college students graduate with significant debt, is it worth going to a school that is more expensive with an equal reputation of another school. While still getting the same degree. #business #after-college #college-tuition #degree

Without going to socialism, any hope of more reciprocity between states concerning out of state tuition? Maybe cut some Board of Regents salaries to get costs down? #college-reciprocity #college #college-tuition #financial-planning

Is there any way I can get in-tution for a non-resident freshman at Colorado State University?

A person I talked to at my high school told me that she is getting an in-state tuition for an out of state university and I was wondering if Colorado State University did anything like this. This school is one of my top schools and even with scholarships the total cost for one year is still really expensive. #Colorado-state-university #csu #scholarships #college-tuition

What is the best way to earn cash for college?

I have never liked the idea of using loans. I have earned several scholarships from the college where I've been accepted for the fall semester and most of my tuition is paid. However, there are still some expenses left before I can say everything is covered.

Will school tuition be less in the future?

School has become a business here in the US. I have seen other countries and University tuition is not high. They want people to go to school and be educated. In addition, I have noticed the quality of teaching material is better as well as teaching methods. Is that going to get any better?#college #college-tuition #financial-aid #financial-planning

Is the college I go really so important?

I know that some colleges are better than others but at the end of the day is it just about the degree? Lots of people tell me it doesn’t matter where you go as long as you get the information. But there’s a reason some schools costs so much more- is the quality of education worth it? I don’t want 4 years to cripple me financially, especially if I’m not sure what it’s worth. #payingforcollege #college #financial-planning #college-tuition

How can I afford college in my situation?

My mom made a bulk of my families' income, but she is leaving her job for personal reasons. Additionally, my father refuses to put his own money towards my tuition, which makes my FAFSA particularly unfriendly. I am currently at my dream school, Penn State, and have made lots of friends, but I worry that I'll be forced to transfer to a significantly less prestigious school. Please help! #college-tuition #college #scholarships #financial-aid
