    Default Going to College in New York

    Hi,

    Im currently living in the UK but have been over to New Jersey a few times. Been to NYC once but cant remember it much but i was wondering what is the best college/uni around nyc/new jersey. I want to go to a fairly cheap college/uni over in the states if i can get the grades or maybe do a exchange year but what will the cost range around?

    Thanks

    I think Columbia is the best college in the NYC metro area. Im not sure what the exact cost is but most colleges in NYC cost 20,000+ a year, there are some CUNY colleges throughout NYC and cost between 4,000-8,000, but do not include housing. Good Luck!!

    20,000 :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Im still not sure of the usa education system, here we have school then college and university where you do your degree, is it the same in the usa?

    Im going to be 18 and looking for a place but isnt it cheaper 20,000 that way to much even in the uk it costs a lot less :wink:

    Relax...those prices are for NYC only...There are more cheaper options in the USA as they are probably in the UK but they are outside of NYC I am afraid... with a little google search you will find them.

    Good luck with your optons. :wink:

    Actually, those prices are nationwide. Columbia's annual tuition and board is around $37,000 I think. It was $36,000 2 years ago, so I'm just guessing. My sister goes to Brandeis, where I think it broke $40,000 this year. Most good private schools are around there.

    It depends on whether we are talking about private or public schools. Nationwide, the average for the top private schools is in the 30,000s including room/board.

    That said, if you want to go to school in NY, and cannot afford private schools, like most, you are in great luck. NYC has some great public schools.

    I suggest you study up on different schools on www.collegeboard.com . I think it will be immensely helpful to you.

    Most American colleges only offer scholarships to American citizens.

    My former co-worker was originally from Columbia and played with a free ride at LIU (Long Island Univ) - Brooklyn Campus.

    Also, I know St. John's Univ (in Queens) has been ranked very high a few times recently (even won the championship, I believe).

    If you are that good, or even pretty damn good, I'm sure there are a lot of schools that you can go to.

    I think that's a pretty subjective question, I'd say they're just different.
