i only linked the tuition of fscj for comparison. most of the info on these sites are a couple of years old so tuition is actually much higher. what you can see for comparison is that for 1 year, you will pay 10x to 30x the amounth of money for tuition at these for profit schools as you will for attendance at fscj.
if you calculate out repayment for the private school: loan balance: $35,050.00 adjusted loan balance: $35,226.13 loan interest rate: 6.80%loan fees: 0.50%loan term: 10 yearsminimum payment: $50.00
monthly loan payment:$405.38 number of payments: 120
cumulative payments: $48,646.20 total interest paid: $13,596.20
you will have to pay $405.38 per month for 10 years. if you start out earning $21.50/hr on a 36 hr week, (mult by 52, div by 12, mult by .85 to get rid of taxes), you would have take home of $2850.90/mo.
as long as you have no bills right now and you are ok with that, then go ahead. it took me 1 yr of pre-reqs (at 2 classes per semester) and 4 terms of ns to graduate from fscj. fscj credits are transferrable. most, if not all, of the credits at those private, for-profit schools are not. not a big deal unless you want to go past adn.
