So true. Fortunately, I am a Presidential Scholar so I have a $45,000 scholarship for undergrad and I'm also a National Merit Scholar so I have another little scholarship there. I also get to save a lot of money by not having to apply for med schools since I already have guaranteed acceptance here. As for med school tuition, my father has offered to pay my way through for me. I must say I am one damn lucky individual because my wonderful parents have been tremedously supportive throughout my life and have always been there to offer me guidance and financial assistance in order for me to succeed. However, I'm applying for a Naval Scholarship in order to ease the financial burden on my parents. In the end though, you're 100% right. I'll definitely have to wait several years before buying a new BMW. For now I'll have to make do *grin* with my old 325is and my A4 1.8T. It's a hard knock life j/k.
