Mini wanted to go there too, but he got some scholly money at Jacksonville.  We had been told to plan for $40K annually.  Thankfully he opted for the scholarship money and now it will only cost us around $18K annually.  That's still twice my salary...
Damn. When did you get a raise?

I went to a few sites to check the current average costs of a 4 year degree at Auburn.  This takes into account living in on-campus housing.  These figures are for the 2018-2019 school years and come from collegecalc.org

Tuition:  $11,276.00

Housing:  $13,332.00

Books/Supplies:  $1,200.00

Food/Expenses etc.:  $5,782.00

Total Per Year:  $31,590.00

Four Year Total Costs:  $126,360.00


The average annual cost for out-of-state students is just over $50,000.00.  Auburn currently has 30,460 in total enrollment.  In doing some Chizad math and using the in-state tuition amount, Auburn is taking in $343,466.960.00 annually in tuition alone.
What the libs that run the education system have yet to figure out is that government paid for college will work the same as medicaid.  Auburn may bill the government $31,590/year but they will only get paid a small fraction of that money.  Salaries for professors will be forced down, services and amenities for students will dry up, and private institutions that do not take government money for tuition will start to thrive.

And sadly, Auburn is the only school that does nothing to alleviate the tuition cost for out of state students.  At Bama, if you score a 27+ on your ACT, and you live out of state, they start reducing the cost of out of state tuition. At Arkansas, if you live in a state that borders Arkansas, and you maintain a 3.40 GPA or higher, they will charge you in-state tuition.  Ole Miss does something similar to what Bama does, with regards to the ACT score.

The other thing to remember with the rising cost of tuition, it that it's also easier to get grants/scholarships than when we all went to Auburn.  Yes, it's expensive, I won't deny that, but there are avenues to make the cost lower.

Edit to add:  Auburn is also the only school that does nothing to actively recruit in the Missouri market.  Bama rented out Busch Stadium summer 2018 to have any high school senior come visit.  Ole Miss and Miss State do all kinds of shit around here.  It's very frustrating to talk to parents we are friends with, and hear their kid is going to Bama "The tuition Bama offered is cheaper, even with out of state tuition, than it would be to go to Illinois."

As I said earlier, we're trying to make sure our Mini (6'2") gets as much at JC as possible while living at home.  My parents bought the PACT plan for our kids when they were born, so there will be a good bit of help with the tuition.  Won't come close to knocking it out but it will help.  I've been putting away a few duckies every month for years and we're hoping that will get us close to the end without having to take out a second mortgage and/or start a child trafficking business.  Lots of kids playing at the end of our street.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Another "way" Auburn has lost its way. Me and my cousin both went to AU - we both ran XC, he was on full scholly - joined ALUM, TUF, rah rah sisboombah, bought tickets...all that jazz - and they have totally snubbed their noses at our other next gen family members, meaning they seem to not care one way or the other..... I know of others who have had the same thing happen to their kids and family members after years of donating, supporting, legacy, etc.

Mine will go elsewhere. Oldest is going trade/technical/vocation route. Thats his thing.....doesnt like the traditional classroom thing....wants a skill or 3. Thats fine by me. Youngest will go Track Scholly route at D2 or D1AA level somewhere semi-local - Columbus State, Valdosta, Ga Southern, etc - unless she snaps her leg in 5 pieces between now and then.

I have zero desire to let mine step foot on a campus I don't even recognize anymore - in many ways...it pains me in fact.

Check Springhill in Mobile.  I've got connections with that track team.  It's a good place to go.

The kids tell me this is natural for every generation.  The things we remember and mourn aren’t the things they will.  They say when you reach a certain age you tend to look at the past through a cloudy lens and fear the future because it’s more and more out of your control and because it doesn’t fit the way you think or lived. They assure me my grandparents and great grandparents felt the same end-of-the world sense of doom. 

They point to the cesspool that was New York in the 70s and how they must have assumed the world was sinking into a satanic pit of debauchery. 

Some of that is probably true.  I’m sure every generation fears the fate of the world. 

Then I remind them that Donald Trump and Rudy were two of the primary architects of that city’s revival.

My daughter wanted to cheer at AU. No way I was paying 27k for out of state tuition. Legacies get nothing at Alabama schools. 
She went to Kennesaw State for two years(6K/yr). Cheered. Won two national championships and then decided to be a radiology tech. Much cheaper route.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Hell yeah man. Congrats there. Good route. And yeah you’re right with the legacy thing. It’s a shame. I’ve heard from several I work with that Kennesaw is a pretty swell school.
