College isn't free here, but lots of protests have been going on, protesting tuition hikes. $800 fees.

Despite state increases of 15% in Florida, there's no reason to be protesting here. It's dirt cheap, and the state supports the students a ton through the state lottery system with Bright Futures. For any student graduating from a Florida high school, so long as you've got some academic merit to you (and they don't ask for much, with all the loopholes and whatnot), they end up covering around 60-75% of that tuition. Graduating with a 4-year degree in Florida debt free is pretty common, whereas in most states even in public institutions they can't say that.

That's nice - wish they did that here. Don't plan on studying here - much more opportunities in the US, or at least that's what I think.

You need to get your residency in Florida if you want our awesome tuition rates though. Although, if you apply as an out of state you're more likely to get a scholarship.

But the difference is $4500 vs $20,000 a year.

In Poland. Of course I'm telling about public universities (which are here way better and prestigious than private ones).
The government is planning to make a second major payable since next year. It has made me decide to start studying two majors this year (I'm beginning in October) istead of one I planned during high school.

Wages in Poland are really low, so weren't universities free, many talented people couldn't afford to achieve higher education.

Hmm, interesting.

So, today was my first day of junior year. As soon as I got in my Algebra II class (first of the day), the teacher started talking about university/college. Literally took up half of the class. Wasn't expecting that so soon, but I know it's going to be mentioned much more as the year goes by.

Nothing like the "normal" life of a teenager.

That's totally normal for junior year. Nobody would ever shut up about college, my junior year. Ugh. It was annoying, especially when I hadn't decided where to go yet...

Yeah it's starting to hit me too that college is in two years. I'm actually going to camp in Boston, Massachusetts on Sunday to Berklee School of Music to see if I like it. I for certain want to study music in college. I really hope I have a good time and I am counting on it. Everyone else has to go to school for the next five days next week while I am camp. Muahahahaha.

Err I'm a year into college. In fact, in 10 months I must ban myself from this thread.

Or maybe I'll stay around until I'm like... 21
