      That's great Ron! My daughter is heading to college next year as well. She's still undecided what she wants to do so it's off to community college for a couple of years. That's fine with me, she can stay at home longer that way!

      I've been putting away $500 a month for 4 years now against college. It's a start at least. She's been going to a private school so the money spent on that will continue to go toward her education.

      Tell your daughter congrats, she's on her way!

            Re: Daughter is going to College

            When I went to college I got no need based aid. Knowing it was a futile effort, I never even filled out the forms; so I can't give any advice on that. For merit based things, the best advice I can give her is to apply for as much as she can as often as she can. Just because you don't get it in year 1 or 2, doesn't mean you won't get it in year 3 or 4. I went to a state school ten years ago, so my tuition was only $3,400; but I managed to cover all of that plus a bit by cobbling together a bunch of scholarships. $2,000/year from the University, $750 from an Alumni association scholarship. I think $3,500 from Ericsson, $1500 from the University Association. When you have to write an essay, take the time to figure out what the interest of the person giving the scholarship is; and make sure that you match that [while staying honest].

            My wife managed to get even more money than I did (but had room and board to pay for so didn't come out ahead). She won a pretty nice scholarship from the founder of a local technology company, which she turned into an internship, and after graduation her current job. The networking value (especially of the small ones) can be worth more than the money.

                  Ron, congrats. My daughter looked into scholarships several years prior to needing them, and we did take advantage of financial aid according to our income to offset the almost $50,000 a year tuition. She graduated Cornell, phi beta kappa this year. On a more personal note, although she and I butted heads quite often I cried like a baby just before she left for college. Leaving for college really turns a page, no more little girl living at home.

                      Yeah, went through that with 2 girls, both now graduated and married off to boot in the past year.

                          All six of our kids attended schools out of State. Brenda cried like a baby as each one left but I felt it was an important part of growing up. It's funny how one wants to kick them out of the nest to learn and the other wants to keep them in to protect them.

                                Mark, I was sad because it marked a passing of time that while part of growing up made me feel a loss. I never held the girls back from exploring the world around them, the good things and bad. I pushed to have them drive and learn other life skills. That night before she left for college just hit me hard, I felt like things would never be the same, I felt old.
