    If you come in with Bright Future's, the school is generally affordable. However, Financial Aid can be stingy for middle class kids. However, if you do have to spend a little extra to go, it is still something I recommend. UF is a great school, and a stellar education is worth it.

    It's a public university with public university tuition but with the prestige of an Ivy League school. Look on any website for tops schools in Florida. UF is always #1.

    Florida is ranked number 1 currently as the best bang-for-your-buck school (Washington Monthly). Granted, if you're living out of state, that might not be true. But for those of you who have Florida residency, you'll be pleased to know that you could do a lot worse. You have to think of college as an investment into your own future. And this one comes with little risk. Depending on your duration of stay, and your ability to pay upfront; you probably won't be handing your college debts down to your children. That said, it's always best to try and get as much of it out of the way upfront as possible. Interest can be killer. But it's not impossible, it's all been done before.

    If you are a high school student living in Florida and qualify to receive Bright Futures Scholarships, the cost of attendance is extremely affordable. I was able to complete my Bachelor's degree with little to no debt using these scholarships combined with other grants for which I qualified. Florida resident tuition is a pretty sweet deal.
