I just turned 24 earlier this month (June) and I have been out of college since '97. I entered college with a full academic scholarship and $13K in private scholarships of which $7K was in my pocket the first year. I spent money on hundreds of CDs, tens of video games and consoles, and ate out more times than I could count. I bought a computer, so I could be lazy and write papers and code in my dorm, and helped with buying my first car - 1987 Nissan Maxima w/59K miles in '94. My point is that I blew A LOT of money fast. I didn't have to pay for tuition, room, or board (cafeteria 3 times a day for those that don't know what board is) the whole time I was in school (4 years), but yet I have nothing to show for that. Just think what $7K could be worth today due to the astounding growth of the market since '93, which is when I started school. I often am bitter with myself for having been so stupid (esp. since I have a wife and two toddler daughters now), so I hope that I can possibly help anyone else who is entering college with some cash on hand.--TabboneBroke since 1902
