School costs are increasing every year. Heck, some even take out a loan just for the books. I still remember how I felt when I purchased my first book -
. $300 is a lot of money for a book! That was a wake up call. By the time you finish school, what do you think will be your total school loan costs (estimate)? How many decades do you think it will take to pay it off?

I hope to graduate from the Bachelor's program with no debt, since I am studying at night and working full time during the day, and my wife is also working. We were able to pay cash for my enrollment this year, after help from Uncle Sam
. Later during the Master's I may not be so lucky. It pays to shop around and see where you can pinch pennies, especially for the Bachelors. My university is a lot cheaper than many. I plan to get the BSN and Masters at this university and then, if God provides, eventually go for a doctorate from a more prestigious place down the line to balance out cost/benefit. I would hate to be forced to make future decisions based on debt I rack up today. Of course, nothing is set in stone and the job market will dictate much how much, if any, we need to borrow in future.
