The Price of Admission

I’m expecting to blow over $1000 on college admissions for the 2013 term. Here’s a breakdown:

UK

UCAS App – 21 quid

COPA – 30 quid

Cambridge Interview – 110 quid

Total for UK: 161 quid – SGD 318 approx.

Gosh. But it gets worse across the Atlantic.

US

SAT – $71 then ($26 intl fee) – it’s $81 2 years later; inflation of 14%

SAT Subject – $73 iirc

SAT Score Reports – $11 x 12 = $132

2010 Applications – $300 est.

2011 Application – $70

2012 Applications – $700 est.

Total for US: $1340 – SGD 1643 approx.

 

Congratulations, Brian. You just blew 2000 Singapore dollars over several electronic forms. Not to downplay its importance to my future but…

Wow.

I blew so much money, and this fact blew my mind.
