What You Need To Succed

Good classes to take in high school are advanced math, science, English, and social studies.

As far as college courses there are many different routes you can take.

Cost of Education

Tuition per year at University of Miami is $59,464.

It will cost around $416,248 to go through school there.

Personally this is what I think it will cost for everything else.

Housing for amount of time in college (most are for four years with summers off)= $24,000

Food/groceries for the amount of time I will be in college (most are 4 year degrees) = $10,000

Gas money for travelling/helping pay for carpooling during time at college (4 yrs.) = $4,000

Clothing money for time at college (typically 4 yrs.) = $800

Total tuition for total time at college (typically 4 yrs. with summers off)= $40,000

GRAND TOTAL COST OF GOING TO COLLEGE (housing, food, gas, clothing, and tuition)= $100,000

I do think I will need to apply for loans, financial aid, and/or scholarships. I also think I will need to at least get a part-time job to help with costs. I think this is a career I would want to pursue in the future.
