UCLA total cost- in state? NYU and Columbia

<p>whats the total cost of going to UCLA for 1 yr for someone instate?
what about NYU / Columbia?</p>

<p>ucla... (too lazy to check online right now b/c my computer is being mean), but it's roughly $8000 a year for tuition and books, and I believe around $10,000 a year (~1000 a month) for on-campus living</p>

<p>nyu/columbia probably $20-25,000 a year for tuition alone.</p>

<p>as a generalization, most publics + housing = around $20,000 and most privates + housing = $40,000</p>

<p>columbia tuition is roughly 30,000. I'd assume NYU was similar.</p>

<p>garland is correct. NYU tuition ranges from $30,000 - $33,000 depending which college you're in. Estimated total costs for a year are approximately $46,000.</p>

<p>UCLA in-state:</p>

<p>$6,585 tuition</p>

<h2>$10,059 housing (high rise, 14 Premier)</h2>

<p>$16,644 total (excluding books, living expenses)</p>

<p>Actually, NYU's tuition is slightly cheaper than Columbia (by a few hundred dollars). But NYU's housing is a bit more expensive. </p>

<p>UCLA is much cheaper than both Columbia and NYU because it's a state-school. You cant really beat its prestige and cost factor. The only other school I can think of that rivals it in cost and prestige is the University of North Carolina, which is quite cheap too.</p>

<p>Also, keep in mind that sometimes, a school like Columbia or NYU can cost just as much, or is even cheaper than many publics. Simply because privates tend to offer much better financial aid packages. I remember one private school offered me a full-scholarship, which would save me $33k per year, and the public/in-state offered me virtually nothing. So I would've had to take out up to $5-7k in loans per year.</p>

<p>But still, in terms of price, it's pretty difficult to beatout UCLA.</p>

<p>Flopsy is a bit off on cost of UCLA - total fees are over $7,400 for instate students. The UC's don't charge "tuition" for instate students, but "fees" -- And you have to pay the total fees or they don't let you in... The links she gave has the correct figures, just look at the total cost of all fees :)</p>
