Planning for College
Posted August 6, 2008on:
My eldest son is in 3rd year high school now and soon will be off to college. As my brother and I were chatting earlier today, he suggested for Matt to consider going to NY, Boston or Toronto for a degree. Our conversation went this way:
Me: How much ang tuition sa NY, Boston or Toronto? Baka makuba kami ni Jerry.
Junnie: 45,000 per year
Me: *Gulp* Wala bang scholarship?
Junnie: …but the student can loan that and pay when able
Stop, you had me at “pay when able”, I told mysef. Hahaha….
Me: Matt! Tito Junnie said you should prepare for college as early as now. Where would you prefer? NY, Boston or Toronto? (Naks, as if I could really afford)…
Matt: (Voice coming from the 2nd floor) Ok Ma. How about NY? (Sakay naman sya. This guy is playing along.)
Me: And you Kyle, where would you want to go?
Kyle: *Shrugs his shoulders and smiles* (Perhaps he thought I wasn’t being serious. Hmm.)
Jake the 4yo: Ma, I want to go to Boston! Now…
