Right on! - or something, I can't get all the jargon right.

Anyway - we had three kids, growing up in Virginia. Starting when the first was about 12 we would show them William and Mary, UVA, etc. The deal was, we would pay Virginia rates for 4 years. If they wanted Brown, Harvard, they could pony it up themselves. As of now we have one Psychiatry, MD (that's scary)(UVA, MCV), one summa cum laude (VA Tech), and the "experimental" child-Northern Viginia Community College, entering into George Mason University.

Thing is - they knew the costs. The UVA'er had a chance for Brown, but when he saw it was "his" dollars that were going to pay for Brown, he went for the in-state tuition. Virginia has a great system. Not everyone is so lucky.
