My daughter has 4.2 GPA and 2320 SAT. She got in some rank 20 or so private schools and 4 UC schools. She is on waitlist for UCLA. She got no scholarship, and very little loan granted. We are not qualified for any need based aids.

I think paying private the full $60,000/year for 4 years is what scares me. UCs are close to $30,000 a year.

I am not sure what else would cost other than quoted from schools. Airfare to and from home few times a year? Summer school or study abroad? Cell phone, Car, rent? How much more should I prepare to be reasonable on top of the $60,000 quoted from the private school already?
