I'm On My Way To School

I'm on my way to school.

Well, not my school really. I'm going to one of the universities that my younger brother is applying for college. It is one of the ivy league universities here in Manila. The one that bleeds green and is represented by an archer. I'm not too keen in him getting into this university. I know there are better universities out there that don't cost an arm and a leg. Education is a right, not a privilege. Not sure about the figures but I think college education here in Manila is one of the most expensive in the region. How much does college education costs in your country?

Back to the matter of running this errand, I'm doing this favor for my mom and younger brother. I raised a howl when I was asked to do this because it will eat up the time I have for my usual activities like going to the gym or just loafing around. LOL!

Actually, I really don't mind. I'm more than happy to help my younger brother out. Of course, I don't mind doing errands for my mom. How often do you do favors for your family? Do you mind?

Way too much. About the cost of a house $90,000 to $100,000 undergraduate higher for graduate.

In the UK, the local universities charge between £6,000 and £9,000 a year to local students, I think it is more for students from outside the EU. Students can get a student loan to cover this and also extra for their living expenses. Say they borrow £12,000 a year, then that will cost them £36,000 for a 3 year course. That is probably about $70,000 US at the current exchange rate (didn't check it exactly though).

In the U.S., education is a right up through high school, and a privilege on the college and university level. Unfortunately, most of the jobs that pay decently require at least a college education. Costs vary widely - a community college can cost as little as several hundred dollars a year (depending on where you live, some states are more expensive than others), and a private university can run as much as $50,000 to $60,000 per year.
